I have been in your cafe many times. Not once, your employees were kind enough for us to feel comfortable. Especially the cashiers.. i just do not understand why you are obsessed with the profit. You are already very famous and have enough customers. Let people sit as much as they want, give them some time to make a decision on the line, make them comfortable.. But no, you are rude to your bones. Always! —Eli Monday, July 27, 2015 at 18:59:06 (GMT)
We were disappointed to be denied a coffee at 10:30 p.m. this evening after a long walk to get to your cafe. I would think in the interest of good customer service your staff might use good judgement and try to please the customers instead of being belligerent and laughing in their faces. Especially when the website clearly shows hours are until 11 p.m. on Saturdays. Well done. —Colin Groothius <cgroothius_nospam_at_gmail_dot_com> USA - Friday, July 10, 2015 at 22:06:10 (GMT)

Nice day ruined due to idiot tourists who despised me using my camera and showed us by gesturing with clear middle fingers and sneering. Great to feel welcomed..... —steve <flipped440_nospam_at_hotmail_dot_com> Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 17:02:31 (GMT)

Ce moment dans votre établissement fut pour moi inoubliable ! Plonger dans l'ambiance visuelle et littéraire de harry potter reste un moment fort pour moi et la femme de ma vie ! Merci ! Cet endroit est plein d'ondes positives. La vue y est incroyable et propice à la détente et la réflexion. —David Saturday, October 04, 2014 at 22:29:13 (GMT)
I've just moved here & was told about The Elephant House by many people so decided to try it. We came for dinner followed by cake & tea/ coffee. All of which we were really impressed with & it was very reasonable. The cakes are amazing!! I would say the restaurant area at the back needs a good clean, it is very dusty & maybe a bit of updating as this lets it down. All in all though, we will be back!! :-) —Nicola H Edinburgh - Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 21:17:43 (GMT)
A glance out of the window and I can see the Edinburgh Castle - for a moment I want to make believe I'm having a butterbeer at The Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade while outside I can see Hogwarts Castle - what a magical place!

Hello! I read on someone's Facebook that The Elephant House is owned by David Taylor, and there was a photo of him that looked familiar.

to Nadia Almeini : There has perhaps been some misunderstanding as 90% of our cakes are gluten free. Our soups are ALL vegan and we have other vegan alternatives such as Vegetable Chilli available every day. —The Elephant House Sunday, December 01, 2013 at 11:30:02 (GMT)
Hi I am writing to suggest that you cater for vegans and people who are lactose intolerant. I came to your cafe for lunch yesterday and was told i could only have a salad (so of course i went across the road to have some hot soup as it was a cold winters day). I mentioned to your staff that you even used to sell vegan cake but i was told this was many years ago. It seems only logical to me that you provide at least one decent option as there are an ever increasing amount of people like me who now dont eat dairy and /eggs. I hope you will consider this as you do have a nice cafe and it would be a shame if it excluded so many people.

It's always lovely to return to Edinburgh and come for a cup of tea at the Elephant House. Today was my 4th time and it was on usual form. Buzzing atmosphere and very reasonably priced food and drink. I will be coming back next time I visit. I even purchased the T-Shirt today. This cafe is a must for any Harry Potter fan! —Ruth <ruthsianlacey_nospam_at_gmail_dot_com> UK - Sunday, August 25, 2013 at 20:46:56 (GMT)
I love to tune in at odd times just to see what your customers are buying for breakfast, for afternoon snacks, everything on the pastry shelf looks yummy. I plan to visit Scotland one day soon and I will be sure to add the Elephant House to my itinerary. God Bless you all! —Sofhiia of Washington, DC Thank you for setting up a web cam in your shop - Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at 02:49:17 (GMT)

I went here during my best friend's party. The decoration is amazing, the margarita pizzas are brilliant, the hot chocolates are the coolest drink ever (as in good NOT as in cold), the toilet graffiti idea is simply FAB! The crew and I would just like to thank you for making our day the best party ever! Member 3 xxx —The Edinburgh Birthday Crew (member 3) Tuesday, July 02, 2013 at 19:09:06 (GMT)

Hi, I'm trying all avenues here, but I placed an order with your online shop back in December 2012 and I haven't recieved it. I've sent you two e-mails, one in January and another just a week or so ago, and I haven't recieved any reply. I've paid for my order, so this is incredibly distressing. I know you're busy, but...I'd very much like my order. Cheers, Kate —Kate Fathers <kate_dot_fathers_nospam_at_gmail_dot_com> Canada - Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 20:56:24 (GMT)
Not exactly the view I was hoping for but a vast improvement than last week...but I think you can do better. —Greg Payne <gfp1966_nospam_at_hotmail_dot_com> usa - Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 21:11:33 (GMT)
the webcam is misted up,cannot see anything please fix it! —dave wynne <wynne1975_nospam_at_msn_dot_com> united kingdom - Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 13:42:14 (GMT)
We are sorry that we will not be able to see the wonderful "hustle and bustle" of Elephant House anymore. Might as well remove the cam for all the good it does now. Thank you for years of memories. —Sad in Texas! Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 06:37:41 (GMT)
Apologies to all the customers who have commented on our webcam which has been down recently. The cam was deliberately put down because of problems related to staff security and will now only be directed to the outside of the cafe. Many thanks for all the emails and comments... its nice to know how much the cam is appreciated. —The Elephant House of www_dot_elephanthouse_dot_biz <info_nospam_at_elephanthouse_dot_biz> Scotland - Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 21:44:55 (GMT)
Could you please fix the webcam? Please? —Gregory Payne <gfp1966_nospam_at_hotmail_dot_com> United States - Monday, March 11, 2013 at 17:28:17 (GMT)
Looks like the camera fell over? —Bernd Brand <sumpf32_nospam_at_onlimee_dot_net> Leer Ostfiesland Germany - Saturday, March 09, 2013 at 17:37:51 (GMT)
Great site! But lately, your webcam seems to be competing with the Mars Rover. Weird landscape! It probably just needs a readjustment. But I live in Canada, and my remote is too far away to be of any use. —Bill Houston of www_dot_billhouston_dot_ca <bhouston_nospam_at_tbaytel_dot_net> Canada - Saturday, March 09, 2013 at 07:47:49 (GMT)
I really miss being able to see one of my favorite coffee houses in the world. I am hoping that someone notices that the webcam is knocked over so we can visit again soon. Thank you so much! —cheryl of the-portrait-place_dot_com <maok37_nospam_at_aol_dot_com> pasadena, usa - Monday, March 04, 2013 at 16:16:49 (GMT)

I visited in early January during the day and had a nice time; however I tried to get a hot drink tonight at about 8:30 only to find the lights dim, the chairs up and doors shut....what are your current closing hours? —Anna Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 21:25:46 (GMT)

my husband and I visited your tea house in the summer of 2009 during the Gathering. Loved your shop and Edinburgh. Hoping we can make it back there one day. Much love from Texas —Tracu <jail_dot_medic_nospam_at_yahoo_dot_com> Greenville, Texas/USA - Thursday, February 07, 2013 at 08:11:55 (GMT)
This is a great little coffee house, the atmosphere is pleasant and there is a nice buzz about the place. The one gripe I have is the staff. I have been here a couple of times now and a couple of the staff are very uncharming and make you feel rushed when reading. As soon as my coffee is finished, they take it and continually look over so as to suggest, please leave and allow the table to be freed up. —Ian Randleston <ian_dot_randleston83_nospam_at_hotmail_dot_com> Monday, January 21, 2013 at 10:56:06 (GMT)
The best coffee in Edinburgh, I'll have to check on my next visit warm greetings from Mexico .. —Melissa <melissa_dot_iris_panda_nospam_at_hptmail_dot_com> México - Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 21:14:40 (GMT)
We visit Edinburgh often, & always call in to The Elephant House. You are often crowded - no surprise - & queues can be long. So we really welcome your enforcement of the 'be served before you sit down' rule stated on a large board that not even the most selfish customer could miss. So often in the past people would just walk past the queue, past the modest sign, grab a seat & then join the queue. This created annoyance. Your larger notice, with consistent, polite enforcement, is just the ticket. We look forward to seeing you again. What a wonderful place you have! With very best wishes.

Hello, I visited you shop last October and had a wonderful experience. The cup of tea, I believe, was the Scottish house blend, was the best I have had in a very long time. The scone was incredible. One of your most thoughtful waitresses gave me the company where you purchase your tea. I have unfortunately misplaced that small piece of paper. Is it possible to have you e-mail me where I can purchase that wonderful tea? Again I had a most agreeable experience there. One day I hope to return. Thank You —Kathy <kjgoris_nospam_at_comcast_dot_net> United States - Friday, January 04, 2013 at 21:50:49 (GMT)
