REVIEW – Another breakfast at Moo Cafeteria, Canonmills


Moo cafeteria If I wrote a review every time I had something good to eat at moo cafeteria, this website would be moo-centric.  We reviewed moo not long after it opened and the second visit saw Moo receive our ‘recommended’ award.  We always check up on places we have highly recommended, so another trip for breakfast […]

REVIEW – Moo Cafeteria, Canonmills


As you walk through the Canonmills area of Edinburgh and down Brandon Terrace, it’s hard to miss Moo, a brand new place to eat.  Nestled in between two favourites of Edinburgh Spotlight, the Circle Cafe and Coffee Angel, I was hesitant at first to dine there.  I peeked at the menu and liked what I saw and […]

REVIEW – Brekky Roll At Now Rest, Bonnington Road


Sometimes you just can’t beat a brekky roll at a greasy spoon cafe and my preferred one is ‘Now Rest’ at Bonnington Road (Leith End). Ironically it’s next door to Martin Wishart’s cooking school. Now Rest is full of characters, Leith locals, workies and people like me who just want a decent cup of tea […]

REVIEW – Breakfast with Richard Simms


  Richard Simms is a delightful character who I met before going to his show when he was promoting on the Royal Mile.  He was super friendly and full of advice for me to live a healthier life.   Meeting him in person got me excited for his breakfast show that I had already booked for.  […]

REVIEW – Amicus Apple, Frederick Street


Had a brilliant dinner at Amicus Apple in Frederick Street during the week with my friend.  It started off well since house wine was 2 for 1   The service was impeccable and I would go as far to say that the waiter was one of the best I have encountered in Edinburgh. I used the List […]

REVIEW – Lunch At The Foot Of The Walk, Leith

Today I had an express lunch at The Foot of the Walk in Constitution Street, Leith.   It’s part of the Wetherspoon’s chain and has been really popular in Leith since it opened in 2001.   Nipped there for a quick lunch today on my friends’ lunch hour, sometimes you just need any kind of grub ! […]

REVIEW – Quick Bite to Eat at Catherine Di Placido

Catherine Di Placido is on Queen Street at the bottom of Frederick Street and does a good selection of take out food.  I popped in there for a quick lunch, picking up a chicken mayo roll – £1.65, carrot cake £1.10 and a pot of tea £1.25.   There didn’t seem to be any extra charge for […]

REVIEW – Breakfast at Cafe Rouge, Frederick Street


Cafe Rouge on Frederick Street has been around for years. It’s popular with the locals and a great place to spend an afternoon in the summer months as they have outdoor seating that gets the sun most of the day. I’ve not been for a couple of years, as I have heard mixed reviews including […]
