Ouwaah, the choice, the CHOICE! I´ve been coming here since 14 years back, when I was a voluntary worker on a budget that only allowed for cheddar, and spicy hoummous on a good day.
I used to dream of making my fortune in the world, and coming back to order the avocado salad.
Believe me or not – it all worked out this way! Potatoes come in three sizes now, and a medium + one filling is enough to give you stronger arm muscles as you munch while wandering up the Mile, bumping into people and bollards because you´re so engrossed.
But i still have the spicy hoummous at times.
There are maybe 30 different fillings, and every single one of them looks delicious and superfresh, and I guarantee you´ll forget there´s no meat in any of them.
The staff is never less than pleasant, and prices are amazing for the portion size and value you´re getting. Do take out, though, since the tiny space gets cramped quickly - and take a cake on your way

Delicious and filling meal at a low price. Located on a side-street just off the Royal Mile – it’s a perfect location for those sight-seeing or visiting for a festival, etc.
Vast variety of fillings, all vegetarian, and all delicious! I had spicy hummus with a few extras and it was a huge portion and very filling.
Nice range of vegan and vege friendly cakes also on offer.
As others have mentioned, as it is a small shop, there isn’t a great deal of sitting space but given its close proximity to Princes Street Gardens, I find it quite pleasant to walk downhill and eat my food there.
Unfortunately if the weather is bad you might not have many options – which is why it has lost a star.
Food is a 5 though, well worth a visit

I've never seen and eaten such a big potato like this:)
You can choose topping and size and there're many side dishes.
In my case I could eat big size for lunch and dinner!
I really stuffed myself:D
I recommened this to my friends who went to edinburgh.
When I go to glasgow next time, I'll drop by there:p
You should go there and try:)))@

Stumbled on this place during a weekend at the Fringe festival when we wanted to grab something quickly and noticed a queue coming out of this place - always a good sign.
All toppings (there are hot and cold options) are vegetarian, think I got a veggie chilli, cheese and coleslaw and it was DELICIOUS! Portions were huge and this was the nicest jacket potato I've ever had and all of the group agreed.
Think the did other things like wraps or sandwiches but really the potatoes stole the show!

A truly fantastic takeaway. If you need to grab some lunch, you'll find something hearty, healthy and filling in this place. I'm particularly impressed with their vegetarian options- not just the usual egg mayo! Hurrah!

This tiny yet awesome tattie shop has an amazing selection of vegetarian and vegan fillings.
Just don't count on eating in the shop - there's only one table.
Tasty. I like the spicy houmous potato.

The baked potato shop kept me alive during a number of Edinburgh festivals where eating and sleeping are always a low priority.
The potatoes are seriously huge. Sadly so are the queues and it's often too cold to sit outside so the lack of seating is a bit of a pain. But their veggie chilli and veggie haggis potatoes are delicious. They spicy hummous is great too.

Very friendly Hippy staff and yummy big portions.
Its nice to find somewhere with such a big vegan selection.
Only reason I took a star off because there is just the small space to sit in and eat. Somewhere this tasty should have more space as if i could have stayed in the shop i would have been having second helpings.
Also nice mix of vegan cakes etc

Quick and cheap, but food isn’t the best, really. Very small space makes it difficult sometimes, and customers are forced to take their food outside. But if you are looking for an alternative fast food company, it can work.
