If you can't afford the £250,000 required to buy a 1 bedroom shoebox in this recently finished Norman Foster designed block in the new Quartermile development, you can at least pop into this cafe on the ground floor for a coffee. It's a smart little place and the coffee isn't much more expensive than anywhere else. The food is very pricey though - some of the small open sandwiches are over a fiver. Needless to say, I didn't get to find out if they were worth it!

Maybe the easiest review I will ever write on here as the good and bad about Peters Yard are so easy. The good is the best coffee in Edinburgh, the fantastic freshly baked bread, the parsnip cake, the sandwiches, the cardoman buns the simple decor. The bad is the location in a vast, greenhouse like cavernous new build office block, the high prices (though compared to the competition it is pretty competitive), and the occasional scrum of morningside mums blocking the place up. The in betweens are the occasional lukewarm coffee and the service which blows a little hot and cold, never bad but sometimes a little on the slow side. Fortunately the upsides far outweigh the bad stuff and this is, in my eyes, possibly the best coffee establishment in Edinburgh.

Here for brunch yesterday.

Me - Rocket & pesto Foccacia, 2 cups of coffee, 1 freshly squeezed orange juice.

Partner - Breakfast platter (bread and conserves), 1 cup of coffee, 1 freshly squeezed orange juice.

Total bill around £16-17.

My sandwich was really nice once I got over the £3.80 price; partners Breakfast platter was REALLY good - excellent bread and spectacular marmalade.

Coffee was very nice and (happily) very hot (not always the case I find).

Orange juice was good but nothing that would justify £2.50 a glass.

OK, it's not the City Caff and it's all a bit healthy and wholesome and beardy. And yes, it is full of smug parents with their doubtless "much more intelligent than normal for their age" babies but, once in a while, I'd go again.

Sandwiches are expensive but definitely worth it so I treat myself from time to time. For a cheaper option try the soups (they have 2 choices everyday). I get a soup "to go", it comes with 2 large slice of bread (2 different breads as well) so it makes a decent lunch and the price is just over £3.

A sophisticated and fresh addition to Edinburgh's cafe scene, Peter's Yard offers a relaxed 'scandinavian chic' environment in which to wile away the hours.

With an in-house bakery the bread is truly delicious and worth the visit alone. Add to this a wide range of cakes, muffins, treats and some great coffees which are hard to resist.

Quality is of utmost importance in this establishment and evident in all they produce - though does not necessarily come cheap. The bacon and pate sandwich was a real winner and, like all the food on offer, is somewhat different to the offering in your average cafe. It was also nice to see some latte art finally reach Edinburgh and indicates that the staff here are on top of their game.

Good stuff indeed - though at a price.

This happened last summer at Peter's Yard, Edinburgh, it was absolutely horrible!

I was waiting to buy a bread and a coffee when a mouse ran out right in front of me! Or staggered would maybe be a better suited word. Obviously poisoned and not long to live; blood coming out on the floor where it lay down. The staff scooped it up with a brush and pan and binned it in the back. I put the bread down and I am never going back. It was rather clear that as the mouse was poisoned, it had been more than one and who knows whereabouts that had been?!

I really like this place and wish we had something similar closer to home. Yes it's pricey but its good value for money. Where else can you get superb coffee, great cakes, excellent soup and friendly service in a "to die for" setting? I have fallen in love with the the parsnip cake, the chairs and the delightful Scandinavian staff. Keep it up, it's great to see an independent business flourishing.

Lovely site, I like the individual tables as well as the shared middle one; food tastes good and looks very appetising but worst espresso in town, twice running - cannot be bad luck!
