I happened upon this establishment whilst exploring 'sunny' Leith and after a hash brown and egg doubler I was sold to the idea of using the venue and catering expertise for a potential multi million pound contract. Although the WiFi was rather slow, the additional facilities were well catered for. Needless to say, if it wasn't for the staff, catering... More

This cafe is a great wee place for some honest homemade food such as stories or mince n tatties staff are great and it takes me back to my childhood years when going into Leith on a Saturday was the done thing, lots of pictures of the area from back in the day which is great to see.

Edinburgh is an expensive city and money soon goes especially during the Festival month of August. It is so important to find a cafe that makes good food and sells it at a fair price. Mitchell's down in Leith is a superb example of such a cafe. Unpretentious and simple this is a lovely cafe. Excellent food and friendly staff.... More

I go once or twice a week. I inevitably have a soup. The scotch broth and lentil versions are consistently good. There are always cafe style food to choose from. Mince & tatties is a fav of mine. It has the man sized hotdog fashioned from fibreglass on the street outside. Not haute cuisine. Honest grub that hits the spot.

This is one of Leith's oldest cafes, one of the friendliest, and provides excellently prepared food at great prices. Our latest visit was today when my husband and daughter had really tasty fish in breadcrumbs with chips and beans. I had an all day breakfast which was not in the least greasy and every individual item on the plate was... More

This is the place to go if you want good food, good helpings and a good price in a warm friendly atmosphere. This cafe is one of the oldest cafe's in the Leith area of Edinburgh, dating back to 1883, and is run today by Rab, Mary, Grace and her daughters. I used to frequent this cafe regularly when I...
