Pizza at Zizzi

Pizza at Zizzi

July saw the launch of the Espresso 100, which was the busiest post of the month and the whole of 2013. The appetite for heated discussion about coffee seems to be huge, and I was entirely taken aback by the level of interest in what was a completely subjective snapshot, seeking to showcase the diversity of provision that’s on offer across the city.

Continuing the coffee theme, stars of this month included Freeman’s and I Heart Café, with the steak sandwich at the latter proving one of the highlights of the year.

The new Zizzi, just off the Royal Mile, proved to be well worth the visit, and I enjoyed a lovely Indian tapas lunch at Dhaba Diner. I really liked the Coffee Mill, which combined an excellent breakfast roll with a warm and engaging welcome.

L’Alba D’Oro, that great Edinburgh chip-shop favourite, served me very nicely when I popped in. It’s great to see excellent standards being maintained.

The only major highlight was the Richmond Café Bistro, which was an odd mish-mash of a place. Otherwise, July was another excellent month.
