Coffee in Edinburgh: Strumpets

I believe that Strumpets is a true hidden gem in Edinburgh serving delicious coffee. Tucked away on William Street in the West End, the light blue facade brings a pop of colour to the Georgian New Town. With a large range of teas, coffees and hot chocolates as well as plenty of food options, it’s…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Burr & Co

Burr and Co has established itself in my heart and has earned a place in my, “Top Five Places for Coffee in Edinburgh,” obviously a very coveted place to be. Located on George Street in central Edinburgh it’s a great place to stop for lunch or coffee when having a peruse of the shops or…

My friends and I are starting to make a habit of finding cute cafés in Edinburgh and going there for hot drinks and cake. It’s definitely a much better habit than biting my nails. Last week we went to Lovecrumbs which had been on our list for a long time.  Fairy lights around a window…

Maison de Moggy

A ‘Cat Café’ is such a fabulous concept. Cake, friends and furry animals; it’s the perfect stress reliever after a long week. Maison de Moggy is located at 17-19 West Port, Edinburgh (just off Grassmarket) and is Scotland’s first ever cat café. It is very popular so it’s best to book a slot on their website….
