Not wanting to partake in the greasy spoon cages along Great Junction Street on this occasion, we popped into La Cerise and were very pleasantly surprised. There was a variety of sandwich options and some nice salads, plus cakes and buns if that's what you're after. The cold drink selection was also good as I do not go in for... More

A great little cafe, friendly staff and inviting atmosphere. The Farmer's Roast sandwich was superb and the cakes and desserts are above and beyond what you would expect from a small cafe. The only downside was the not so brilliant coffee

It may look small but it's perfectly formed. With seating downstairs as well as up, this cafe is tucked away on the corner of a main thoroughfare in Leith and serves, frankly, an amazing array of cakes, smoothies and yes, even coffee. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and decent opening hours too. Definitely worth a look - and much much more.

I got a salad to take away yesterday at lunch time. £3.90 for a vegetarian salad is a bit expensive but the salad box was full to the brim of tasty veggies like sundried tomatoes, mixed roasted veg, peppers, jalapenos, brie, sweetcorn,lettuce etc. I will be going back for another one today.

I live locally but never been to La Cerise until yesterday. Cakes were so yummy I bought a couple for later to share with hubby! They have a great selection of herbal teas and lovely coffee too. Staff were great too. It's small but quite good atmosphere with lovely music in the background. At £2.50 a slice cakes are much... More

The coffee was OK but not the best, the pastry was spoilt by being warmed in a microwave (it makes them soggy). The other cakes on display looked yummy.After the excellent reviews felt it was a bit over rated.

I work in the area and occasionally venture in for a quick lunch. On this afternoon I had the misfortune of being served by the worst-mannered employee, and I was really put off from the meal. I've had much better experiences here before as the food is homemade and tasty. I'll be avoiding the place whenever I see the gal... More

I visited La Cerise for a late breakfast and was very impressed by the service and quality of the food. I had scrambled eggs on toast and the portion was huge, great value for money!

Stopped here for lunchtime break during a wedding. All I can say is we will be back - the chocolate tart and chocolate mouse were to die for - can't wait to try others on our next Edinburgh visit
