29th September is National Coffee Day
In Scotland we are famous for our Whisky and Iron Brew “our other national drink” however I beg to differ when you see how many coffee shops we have in every street in Edinburgh.
We all love our coffee in the office at Edinbugh Festival Apartments so here are some great coffee shops located next to some of our city centre Edinburgh Apartments that I would recommend to our guests staying coming for a short break that need a wee caffeine fix to kick start the day.
Starting with our Edinburgh Townhouse which sleeps 22 people all in single beds, we have a lovely French deli on the same street that does extremely nice filter coffee and only 95p which you can enjoy with lovely fresh baked croissants.
Over at our Lothian Road Edinburgh Apartment which sleeps 20 people we have a Starbucks coffee shop and also a new addition of a Frisky Frozen Yogurt ice-cream shop which also does really nice coffee. Make sure you try the chocolate flavour with fresh raspberries it is Divine and calorie free!!
Our George IV Residence Edinburgh Apartment is right next to the very famous Elephant House coffee shop where JK Rowling penned the start of her Harry Potter books.
Down on the Royal Mile we have a few different sizes of holiday apartments like 17 Fishmarket Close Edinburgh Apartment that has two double bedrooms and 249 Cannongate Edinburgh Apartment that sleeps 10 these are both a stones throw away from Plasir Du Chocolat and Chocolate Soup both of which are great little coffee houses.
Back over at the West End of town we have two great townhouse apartments at 16 Grove Street Edinbrugh Apartment and 31 Grove Street Edinburgh Apartment which are both really spoiled for choice at the top of the street we have a lovely independent coffee shop called Cuthberts who screen old black and white movies in the Evenings and at the bottom of the street their is a great little coffee shop called Fresh who have some really unique sandwich fillings.
My favourite coffee shop in Edinburgh is only a ten minute pleasant walk away from these apartments and its well worth walking up an appetite, Falko Konditormiester a German coffee shop with the very best pot of filter coffee, superb sandwiches and the most amazing Black Forrest Gateaux I have ever had in my life, the cherries are oozing pure kirsch a visit to Edinburgh is really worth taking the time out to go there for brunch or lunch or afternoon cake.
