Indeed, there have always been queues to Blether whenever I’d drive by on a weekend, despite the Costa at the opposite end; even now, half an hour before closing, there were a few people waiting: some for their coffee, others for their food order. Lucky for me, everyone had already ordered so shortly after I arrived at the door I had my own order taken…

Rocksalt & Snails

I quickly directed my steps towards St Swithin Street and the familiar-sounding Rocksalt & Snalils. In fact, the place I visited in Edinburgh was called simply Rocksalt, and sold very nice sandwiches, but not great coffee.
