We normally opt out the hotel’s breakfast in order to dig into locals culture all day long and just across the street we found The Piemaker. They serve around three tens of pies, included sweet flavors. You will spend around 6 pounds for a pie...More

For the price it's by far hands-down best food choice if you're looking for authentic Scottish food fare. Not pretentious yet tasty, full of flavor, fresh hot pies and pasties.

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

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.
