A Coffee in Edinburgh IV: Looking Glass Bookshop [On The Road: Edinburgh]

They made me buy it. A hundred bucks this thing cost me. How dare they? I got news for you, if it wasn't for the toilet, there would be no books
George Costanza (Seinfeld episodes “The Bookstore”)

The Looking Glass Books is a small bookshop with treats and coffee, lovely location, just a minute away from our hotel. You pass by and immediately are attracted by the place, lovely layout, nice sofas and armchairs and cute little checkered tables. They have events such as storytelling, book club, and launches.

The place
We got a Macchiato, Flat white, and also some macaroons. Coffee was nice, not too strong but not too mild either, good balance, ok latte art. The macaroons were really good.

Macchiato Time
Espresso Machine: Fracino
Beans: Carvetti
Score: 4/5

Lovely place, perfect to get a coffee, relax, and forget about everything else for a while.
