Castello Coffee (5♥) is near the corner of Princes Street and Castle Street and is one of Edinburgh's best.

You'll get friendly low-key service, soups, sandwiches, baguettes, snacks and great coffee. Vegetarians will always find good options here.

Even in rainy weather you can sit outside under umbrellas and watch the world go by. There are also tables and chairs inside for chilly times.

Alongside some guests, Castello use Allpress Espresso, a New Zealand outfit that also trades out of London and Sydney. They buy direct from small estates and co-ops so the actual beans change regularly and are seasonal. Castello's baristas will always give you a lovely coffee, and you get variety - perfect.

It's also excellently placed to grab a coffee and picnic and then pop across the road to the Princes Street gardens under the looming Edinburgh Castle.

A great part of Edinburgh's coffee scene.
