The Elephant House Cafe: "You will need time, lots of time!" Elephant House Tip by JacquiL

Elephant House, Edinburgh: 10 reviews and 13 photos

A rather splendid and relaxing setting in which to pass some time. However, if the slack and 'we can't be bothered with you' service is on display as it was when my husband and I popped in for breakfast, then you may need to have several hours to spare and I was left wondering if J K Rowling had managed to complete penning the entire Harry Potter series whilst waiting for her order to arrive. Great building, lovely views out of the window but shocking staff who look as though they have been recruited from the local somnambulistic society!
