Food & Drink

Mamma's Pizza & Panzerotti

Everybody loves pizza, especially the stone baked ones that Mamma makes.

Bains Retro Sweets

Remember when going to the sweet shop was a BIG treat? Transport yourself – and your kids – back to those days with a trip to Bains.

Wilson Street Pantry

There’s no shortage of upmarket coffee shops in Glasgow, but Wilson Street Pantry, ten minutes’ walk from Queen Street, is one of the best.

Patisserie Valerie

The cakes and pastries at this continental cafe look every bit as good as they taste – so kids big and small can delight in picking out the yummiest-looking treat.

Hula Juice Bar

Just a ten-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station, health foodies can fulfill their dreams with a trip to Hula Juice Café.


Wood fired, artisan-built ovens from old Napoli. Slow-proved sourdough bases. Simple, quality toppings. This traditional pizzeria is about as Italian as you can get without leaving the country.


Already a fan of Topolabamba in Edinburgh? Take a trip to where it all started: the much-talked-about Mexican eatery’s first restaurant is on St Vincent Street.

Sheep Heid Inn

Visit the Sheep Heid Inn when you’re ready for a relaxing drink and a bite to eat. Can there be a better way to celebrate conquering Arthur’s Seat?

The Elephant House

We’re not suggesting you’ll be the next JK Rowling simply by visiting the Elephant House. But if your kids are Harry Potter fans, you’re sure to become their hero.


Contini is right in the heart of George Street, just a short walk from Edinburgh Waverley station. Diners of every age are warmly welcomed.
