Hidden gem in Edinburgh. The shortbread is wonderful and the shop owner is super friendly. We bought several items to bring home to the US as gifts.

We were looking for the best shortbread cookies in Edinburgh and found this cute, local shorbread bake shop. Fresh shortbread cookies in several flavors. We loved the cinnamon and regular shorbread cookies. We went back to this shop 3 times because it was so good!

Precious local bakery! So much better than anything in Waverley station. Yummy shortbread and sea salt caramel. So much butter for a sweet train ride!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
