Fodor's Expert Review Checkpoint

$ Old Town International
Originally run as a pop-up during the Festival Fringe, this supercool café-bar is now a permanent part of the Edinburgh dining scene. The coffee is sensational, but the comfort food is just as much of a draw. During the day, there are filling breakfasts, warming soups, homemade subs (with sweet-potato fries), and fresh salads; in the evening—when the place has more of a cocktails-and-craft-beer vibe—there is a range of fish and meat specialties as well as to-die-for desserts.
