Don’t know if it’s the Fringe or being adjacent to the university but either way it was difficult to get seating in the Brew Lab. The first time we ended up having takeaway piccolos in the Brew Takeaway Bar and a day later we managed to get seating in the main establishment. Both takeaway and sit down coffees looked good, were the right temperature but had a bitter after taste which we found offputting.
Coffee was ok, a little watery/ lacking flavour compared to the others we’ve tried in Edinburgh. No greeting or smile at the counter, so Service was lacking too, atmosphere was good but a little loud for a relaxing coffee shop. Pastries looked good also served other food and alcohol.
