This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Business partners Ingrid Nilsson and Stuart Allan have a solid catering background having spent time working in various Edinburgh restaurants. After going it alone a couple of years ago, and utilising their skills as an artist and a framer, they’ve made a real go of this cafe-cum-gallery venture in the heart of the New Town. Hosting local regulars and out-of-towners, this cheery pair makes you feel right at home. Typical tasty examples on the seasonally changing menu include a hot-smoked salmon salad or a warm BLT with salad and crisps. There’s great coffee, portions are vast and the food is cooked to order. A pretty cake board features a variety of delights, and the chef clearly has fun experimenting with different flavour combinations.
- High point: Good value for money
- Low point: Don't pick the table closest to the door
Gallery showing contemporary art with exhibitions changing every five weeks. Cafe offering home made cakes, lunch specials, soup and sandwiches to eat in or take away. Bespoke 'artisan' framing service creating unique frames from bare wood which is painted, waxed and finished to your specification.
