It is so good to know that such places still exist and that such a business can still be successful in 2017

Had to import them directly from Japan. Couldn't find any suppliers closer to home, unfortunately.

Finally found the time to visit here today for some lunch and arcade action.
The toastie was delicious and since it was quiet, I got the place to myself.
Was happy to see Esp re De on one of the cabs and Layer section 2 (which not many people talk about)

Was well worth the drive through and hopefully will make it to a shmup meet one time

Haha, harsh times mate. I am on a bit of a diet myself but the toastie just called to me :awe:

It is unfortunate that arcade playing doesn't burn more calories. I might be able to convince the wife to let me play more in the house ;)

I was strong enough to resist the traybakes though

Ex-Edinburgh "working holiday" resident here, and also a friend of Charlie. I just wanted to say top stuff and congrats. Knowing Edinburgh decently enough, this arcade seems to add so much value to the city. Will definitely duck in when I come back to visit. Keep up the top work, and hopefully you guys get a license to sell Buckfast one day. Hibs represent. YLT.
