> press coffee, 30 Buccleuch Street

2 Nov

Score: 4/5

Great for: A fantastic coffee

Prices: Cappuccino £1.85, Tea £1.55

I can’t understand why this place is not constantly full.  It’s a stones throw away from the main student area and serves up fantastic coffee in a beautiful, airy space.  The large windows that flood this little café with lots of light (of high importance during the winter months in Edinburgh…) and the decor, including some great art work, give this place a fantastic atmosphere.   After ordering at the counter, take a seat and wait to be served.  Order coffee here, because it is delicious.  I’m no great connoisseur, but the milk on my cappuccino was silky smooth and the coffee tasted fantastic, nutty and delicious.  The cakes are not inspiring, but with coffee this good, that’s not a massive downer.  Come here with some friends for an outing that won’t break the bank, come here for a break between lectures, even come here to get some work done – it’s usually very quite and they’ve got good enough table space for it.  In short just give it a try, you’ll love it.
