Save to your city mapThe Elephant House is a popular coffee shop in the centre and a welcoming spot to stop for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a simply a good cup of coffee. It is notoriously known for being the spot where J.K. Rowling penned her first Harry Potter novels. If you're a Harry Potter fan, take a look behind the coffee shop in the graveyard to find a grave where Rowling got inspiration for one of her characters from!

Has a nice bar area for a quick drink by yourself or with a friend. Why not get a Scottish drink - the oaky Innis and Gunn beer is nice - or read a book under the decorative lamps and elephants?

Highly recommend to members of Dumbledor's Army. Coffee's a bit sketchy but worth visiting for some of the best views of the Castle in town.

It's overrated... The coffee taste nothing and they charge £2 for wifi. The place is super dull for the price...

Even if you're not a Harry Potter fan it's worth checking out the toilets here just to see the graffiti by fans. They're a dedicated bunch!

They'll tell you the wifi isn't set up yet when you ask for the wifi password. Seriously? Not cool.
