Such a cute, tiny dog friendly coffee shop. There wasn’t a huge choice in food but there was ample. All looked freshly prepared. My smoothie was delicious. I’d be back!

I have visited here a few times just for coffee. The coffee is delicious and beautifully presented but never hot enough. Even if I ask for an extra hot coffee , it arrives lukewarm. Asking for hot coffee seems to be a crime! I love...More

I've visited their newish branch by the Meadow. I found the usual consistent quality of coffee, and, compared to the historical branch in Castle Street, a much more comfortable and airy environment. Well done.

During a short visit to Edinburgh we visited Castello Coffee Co. three times!! Why?....because they serve the nicest Americano coffee I have ever tasted. Their Bircher muesli for breakfast is also worth a visit!

This coffee shop was just round the corner from my hotel in Princes Street. It has good opening hours and plenty of outside seating. My flat white was nice and full bodied - just how I like it. The opening hours are good, too.

Came here every morning during my five days stay in Edinburgh and had all types of coffee you can get here. Every single cup was fantastic. Do yourself a favour. Leave Starbucks to the tourists and give this place a try. You won't regret it.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
