I was sitting at the starbucks and a lady from the staff told me to go just because I was not having anything at THAT moment. I go there every morning to have a coffee and I can understand I should go if the place...More

Fast service, plenty of coffee choices, choices of cakes and sandwiches; it's a Starbucks just like you expect it. Only down side is that the upstairs sitting area in the afternoon gets very busy so it was difficult to get a place to sit.

Visited here on a Friday night. Although drinks were fine the place is absolutely filthy. God knows when the floors were last cleaned. Only one toilet in use which was disgusting. Witnessed a barista picking up a strip of toilet roll from the floor, put...More

I was hoping to see some unique "Scottish" offerings, perhaps I overlooked them, but appears to have all the standard menu options you would find anywhere. At least it was not overpriced!

I often have Starbucks coffee in the USA/Australia and Uk, but to be honest the coffee in Edinburgh was not good at all. It tasted burnt and was very bitter. I then got a large coffee frappe. This time it was weak and tasteless. Not...More

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
