Artisan Roast is a little, unique cafe on Broughton Street near Omni Centre in town and seems to be the only place where I can have a double shot latte without wincing from the strength ! Which I'm taking to be a good sign. I have been popping in whenever I can for about 3 years now but now I love going out of my way and out of the buzzing streets to sit and spend time with my friends there with a b-e-a-uuutiful glass...yes glass (it's SO adorable) of coffee or chilli hot chocolate for those inevitable 'Scottish' days.
If you're at the festival take a walk down. Directions are on their website ^^
