I had the shear pleasure of visiting this cafe today, after many weeks of walking past the sign on the main street I finally made the effort to venture up to the cafe.
I ordered mint tea and although it wasn't that minty it was lovely, I then ordered Chicken, Mull cheese and chutney panini, this came with a nice size portion of crisps and salad which had lambs lettuce in it, which is one of my favorites, I enjoyed a further pot of tea and I was really tempted by the various cakes on offer. This will be my stop off on a reg basis after time at the gym.
The cafe is spotless with a very light and airy feel also to top it off the staff were friendly.

I had one of the best cappucinos ever there today! The lovely Australian barista certainly knew her stuff. The soup was delicious and very good value - £2 for a large cup - and the home-made millionaires shortbread was to die for! Shame it is so hidden away as quite superb food at really great prices - am just delighted that it is next to my office!

Newly opened Mint is hidden amongst corporate office space in the Exchange Place complex between Fountainbridge and Semple Street.
It has a clean & contemporary, yet arty feel; decor is a mix of comfy couches, bar stools to watch the world go by, and small tables. The lovingly prepared sweet and savoury bites look a delight! There are the classics: shortbread, millionaires shortbread, chocolate fudge brownie; as well as fancier tastes, including decorated mint cupcakes... If the mature cheddar and bacon muffin (£1.30) is anything to go by, they taste even better than they look! The staff are friendly, chatty and helpful.
First impressions of the coffee is mixed. While there was too much micro-foam on my flat white (£2.15, regular, takeaway) the consistency was right, but the coffee itself tasted a little over-roasted and over-extracted.
