The food was good for the price. However, the service was awful. The man working was so rude and disrespectful to all of the customers. I will never return or recommend purely because of the customer service I received.

Always stop in for a vegan pasty if I'm in Edinburgh for the day. Great vegan choices and the the no-frills style suits me perfectly - so many places in the city are over the top and trying to find somewhere to grab something small...More

Pie maker will be one of my fondest memories of Edinburgh, when it comes to food and drinks. The pies are so delicious and filling and because they are so cheap I got to try out a couple of different flavors. Would highly recommend!

Nice for a quick snack limited seating lots of different selections. Pay before you eat. These things are always comming out of the oven. I think it is cash only?

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

Not sure if they do Gluten Free. Most of what we saw was regular crusts. But if you're in the neighborhood, it's good to check it out. The guy at the counter very was friendly and approachable.

Hi there, if you haven’t gone to Edinburgh yet... the beef and potatoes pie was delicious and is what we picked as a “familiar “ item. They are kind of like hot pockets (here in the US) but Actually fresh/not frozen. They... More
