Got 2 hours to kill tomorrow morning before a meeting - any good breakfasts near the train station?

Yeah, Urban Angel is good.
Also the Edinburgh Larder on Blackfriars Street (just off the Royal Mile up the hill from Waverley).
City Cafe for pancakes, on Blair Street (also off the Royal Mile).
The Huxley if you're ok with walking to the West End.

Best place to watch the football saturday lunch time in the centre?

English games? The Three Sisters in the Cowgate will probably show them.

Trying to source cheap accommodation for 5/6 people (new town preferably) for one night at the start of November - GF is organising a Hen Party. Any suggestions?

Try Airbnb, I also see lots of stag / hen parties at Fountain Court apartments.

Remember everywhere will be rammed in August, you'll need to book most places (for food).

cheers andy. sent that list over to my pals so we'll decide on a few and get them booked. can't wait - last time i was there i went for the festival and it was fantastic, so much going on.

Burgers & Beer was really good when I went near the start of the year and heard great things about Civerinos from various mates. Both near the royal mile IIRC.

El Cartel on Thistle St - tapas Mexican anyone? Amazing food, always rammed and you don't need to book but may have to leave name and they contact you when the tables ready.
Didn't rate Scran & Scallie if I'm honest, go across the road to a place called Rollo - again you'll have to book but (imho) it's worth it.
If you like a whisky (when in Rome blah blah) go to Devils Advocate up Advocates close and you'll see a decent selection, set in nice surroundings with an option to sit outside in the old town.

I'll second El Cartel.
Hanedan on West Preston Street is good if you like Turkish. Seating is tight, homely and intimate - very reasonably priced. Just over 5 mins taxi drive from Princess St.
