The ‘pubic triangle’ behind the Edinburgh College of Art might not be the first place you’d think to go for a nice bit of cake and a chat, but then Lovecrumbs is one of those places that defies sense.
Lovecrumbs is the Instagram filter Valencia embodied in cafe form. It’s a cake-filled fairyland where 'gluten free' is double Dutch. There’s even literal window seat where you can lounge and smugly work your way through a wedge of violet and bramble cake for the viewing pleasure of the Edinburghian public. Ooh, you exhibitionist, you.
This, along with old pianos, a cake menu which rotates daily, delicious non-sugary lunch options and cute rickety furniture gives Lovecrumbs an anarchic air that make the act of meeting a friend for coffee between classes into quite the adventure. And there's cake. We mentioned the cake, right?
Lovecrumbs is also a firm favourite with you guys, it seems.

You nominated Lovecrumbs as one of your favourite cafes in both 2015 and 2016 as well as this year's survey, along with the likes of Papercup Coffee, Artisan Roast, The Glad Cafe and Ostara Cafe.
