The tale of Greyfriars Bobby 

Sitting across from the Greyfriars Bobby Statue and surrounded by a fascinating history, our Gelato shop dates back to the 1850s. The tale begins with police officer John Gray, who adopted a furry Terrier friend named Bobby during his time as a watchdog. Forming a strong bond, the pair were seen through the cobbled streets of Edinburgh often stopping by at Alandas Gelato’s former 19th-century building, the ​​Trail’s Temperance Coffee House Cafe, for something to eat.

However, when John died in 1858, Bobby showed his loyalty by refusing to leave his master’s grave in Greyfriars Kirkyard until he passed away himself. A statue now stands just outside our Gelato shop, preserving a piece of Edinburgh’s heritage for future generations.
