My first morning in Edinburgh I had breakfast at McDonald’s on South Saint Andrew Street, because this was the first place I passed that was open before 8 o’clock. I went back the morning after because I liked the fruit toast and coffee and sitting at a table by the window, watching people and reading Metro. You can pick up your free copy of the newspaper Metro inside this Mc’Donald’s.
Although I am not the biggest fan, there are many of them...those who like MacDonalds!! There are a couple in Edinburgh so if you don't want to spend too much money on food (so there is plenty for other attractions and of course alcohol!) then this is a good place to satisfy the rumble from down below...
