The Deacons House Cafe
304 Lawnmarket
Edinburgh, Scotland

Tucked down a laneway near Edinburgh Castle is The Deacons House Cafe. It's not big and it's not terribly fancy but it does have charm.

The narrow laneways and stonework make this place all the more interesting.

You order at the front counter and either take your food back straight away or get a number and its delivered soon afterwards.

Mlady grabbed a hot chocolate and I grabbed a coffee and some scones.
The scones were nice but perhaps a bit over cooked. Strangely you need to order cream and jam separately - they don't automatically come with it. I haven't seen this before.

This isn't the cheapest place in town but it attracts a crowd - presumably because it's so close to Edinburgh Castle. The strangest thing here is the small doorway in the wall above the main entrance that says toilets - must need to bring your own ladder!

This place was fair - not bad but not spectacular.
