Arguably the best coffee shop in Edinburgh. Here you will find maybe the best views of the Castle anywhere in Edinburgh. The name is due to the little effigies and images of elephants everywhere. Excellent coffee and pizza makes this place popular with students, locals and tourists alike.
The Elephant House is also well known as the location where J. K Rowling wrote the early Harry Potter books during her time living in Edinburgh although I am told there aren’t any elephants in the Harry Potter books!
