To be honest with you I only came across this place, about 1 week prior to tonights visit as I was out walking and passed it and instantly added to my list.

I actually went in for dinner, but this is not a dinner place its more an Italian Cafe for snacks cake and coffee. On that note this place was good, as I wasn’t too hungry tonight so a snack was perfect.

The Food…

Soup £2.00 and Focaccia £4.50

I am not normally a soup fan, but today I thought lets have a soup (my family would be shocked to read this). It was tomato soup and was the perfect size as I still had the focaccia to eat.

The focaccia was very very tasty, the flavours were nice and worked really well.

For me this was a perfect combo for a light snack and I would have it again.

Portion Size : 5 (For a snack)
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 3

Toffee Fudge Cake £3.00 & Cappuccino (Large) £2.60

I asked the staff for a recommendation for the cake as I said I wanted something very sweet, so this cake was recommended.

This was very sweet and a perfect recommendation, so I would like to thank Carin and I cant wait to have this again.

The cappuccino was very good and worked well with this cake.

Overall

Tonight was a very nice visit, I am glad I found this little cafe as it was the perfect spot for what I needed.

If you haven’t visited here yet and fancy a nice Italian snack, do check them out.

I came across this little place by accident, as my girlfriend and I were walking looking for a place for a coffee.

Eusebi is a medium sized deli, and a very Italian feel and look to it. It has that family feel to it, as there are lots of family photos from what looked like when it opened, and to the present day.

While sitting I had a look about, for me it felt very much like a little Italian cafe I sat in when I was in Italy.

The walls had different products to buy, or that the shop used. You could buy different meats, chickens, breads etc and it was just a very relaxing atmosphere.

Tonight we decided to have only a Cappuccino each and share a Tiramisu.

The Tiramisu was really nice, creamy, and so smooth and tasty.

The coffee was very nice, so nice I even asked what beans they were using as I would get some next visit.

Overall :

Overall my first experience here was a really nice one, and its on my list to visit again and try more items.

I felt very relaxed and not rushed to leave, I could have sat and sipped on my coffee all night.

Ciao

Anytime I have been on a day trip to Edinburgh, I always have gone back here mostly as its close to the bus station and I couldn’t be bothered trying to find somewhere else.

Many shops and places in Edinburgh have either products from here, or advertise here and a lot of people talk about it in a good or mixed way.

I must have been here about 5 to 7 times, it does have that Italian cafe feel and has a lot of products that you can buy in store.

Any time I have been in the staff have been helpful but not over friendly, which for me I would have liked them to be as any Italian cafe’s I have been in they have been a little more chatty etc but thats just me….you may be like me or not.

Today I ordered the :

Bruschetta Verdure £6.75
Mixed vegetables and cheese on grilled bread

And also a Cappuccino

Overall my experience is always the same when I am here, its good but the cafe part is lacking in a little atmosphere for me.

The food and cakes are always very nice and very fresh.

I don’t know what the restaurant upstairs is like, as Ive still to try that out on one of my visits.
