Today we went to Dovecot Café. Their coffee (by Stag Espresso) is for the ones that like it on the sour side. There is a variety of cakes, too.
This cafe is close to the Old Town, yet secluded, so pleasantly placid. It was recommended by a friend – and yes, her name was to be found on the loyalty wall. My boyfriend says whenever a new cafe opens in Edinburgh they immediately email her (the friend) – or perhaps she has a new-cafe-must-try radar. She knows all the places!
It seemed the hip young parents knew Dovecot, too, as three couples/groups with children came into the cafe during the time we had our coffee.
