High Five: Gertrude Schmidt

Have your say

1 The Elephant House, George IV Bridge One of those cafes where you can spend a whole afternoon curled up reading and eating cake.

2 Tollcrust, Home Street Delicious soups, well-crafted sandwiches, and perfect for a picnic on the Meadows.

3 Forest Cafe, Forrest Road I love the bohemian atmosphere and the fact you can take your own beer.

4 Piece Box, Gilmore Place I’ve heard it’s a favourite of Ian Rankin.

5 Foodies, Holyrood Road It has great toasties and lovely coffee.
