We live in Edinburgh. The coffee situation is pretty dismal. We sometimes feel like going for a coffee and something to eat after a show, for instance, and there's not much available. What I miss is the kinds of coffee shops you have in Sydney in the inner suburbs, 11am to 3am, no alcohol, but yummy food and loads of choice on the dirnks, including chai. From what we can see, the only places still trading at 3am are kebab shops. As for the quality of the coffee sold, let's see. Costa and Starbucks, not too good. Neros is better, but one has to be well heeled to drink there. Amazingly, Wetherspoons (Lloyds in the Omni centre) is quite good. Cheap coffees that taste okay. And nobody does good plunger coffee here. Well, we have been here quite a few years, and have pretty much tried out at least 50% of the inner coffee serving establishments, and so far I have yet to try good plunger coffee. We were in Paris a decade or so ago, just travelling through, and I remember being in this place, just an ordinary coffee shop where you stood up to drink the coffee, and drinking a flat white that tasted like liquid velvet. If anyone knows anywhere selling really good coffee in Edinburgh, please do share.
