A Very Cozy Coffee Shop
The Elephant House cafeteria was the place where JK Rowling began writing Harry Potter on paper napkins. It is a very friendly local that has seating in the rear with wonderful views of Edinburgh Castle. For those with more of a sweet tooth I recommend the Marshmallow Delight, a hot chocolate with cream on top. They also serve meals, simple dishes typical of the UK, which in general is delicious.
