No idea Morgan but seem to think it was predominantly a restaurant.

Sure my dad used to buy cigars and pipes from Bewley's.

I remember that at one stage it was a MacVitties Guest or a Crawfords bakers.

Well done, Joey!

 

There was a Bewleys tobacconist at Tollcross, underneath what became the Penthouse Bar.

 

I knew I’d heard the name somewhere.

It was definitely a MacVitties Guest Tea House in Easter 1978.

 

My brother and I were staying at my Grandads at Crewe Toll for the whole Easter holidays. He used to take us there every morning for a chocolate eclair and we would open our World Cup '78 Panini stickers for our album! 

 

Best holiday ever and probably the main reason why I fell in love with Edinburgh.

Good wee story, nice memory.  :thumbsup:

 

Also, thanks for confirming about MacVitties.

Thanks!

 

For what it's worth, I cannot think of a worse boozer in central Edinburgh than Shandwicks*

 

Makes the Alexander Graham Bell look like Studio 54. 

 

* I've probably said this already on this thread!

What was it called before Bewley's Stuart?

 

I'm pretty sure it had another name, but was still a coffee shop.

 

Edwards was some place at the weekends btw!!  :vrface:

 

 

Ah, Edwards. I witnessed Riordan getting slapped about in that place by a Celtic fan circa 2006. The guy knew the bouncers so they turned a blind eye to what was happening then ejected the rat and his blonde mullet! 😄
