Dumplings of China

A new addition to Tollcross restaurant scene, and the name says it all: great dumplings Chinese style. The soup was also great!!

Nº 1 The Grange

This restaurant had some great reviews so I decided to give it a try last weekend. The food was good, specially my Mexican mole with corn bread but we needed to wait for 50 minutes!!!!

Thrive

A new cafe in Bruntsfield with vegetarian/vegan food. The food is great but the coffee not that much. WiFi is functional but there is not a lot of power plugs around so not the best place for co-work but great for lunch!

27 Elliot’s

A brand new cafe in the heart of Marchmont, it has amazing food, done by Jessica Elliot in the premises, excellent coffee and cosy environment. Join that to solid WiFi, some power plugs and comfortable seating and you have an excellent space to co-work. Coming back soon to try more options on the menu!

Imperial Palace

Great Chinese restaurant with very good dim sums and dumplings.
