Happiness Is A Piece of Cake: Piecebox Edinburgh

Piecebox, named after the Scottish endearment for a packed lunch, is a lovely little café and bakery based in Polwarth, Edinburgh – just around the corner from our base at Edinburgh Napier University. It's a great spot to enjoy a coffee in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere with fairy lights strung on the window and a mountain of homemade cakes to admire. According to their Instagram, their "priorities are fresh, homemade food, served with a smile!" and we couldn't agree with this sentiment more.
