Roquet was very disappointing. Popped for a quick lunch. Service was charming but the food was very mediocre. Salad leaves were old and limp had seen better days (and there was no roquet!) the crispy bacon with my baked potato wasn't at all crispy. I wouldn't recommend it.

I eat in Rocket regularly as it is great, tasty food at a reasonable price. it's not pretentious and doesn't kid on that it is anything but a great wee cafe serving delicious food. I often wish it was a bit bigger but then it wouldn't be the same. the service can be slow but it is very busy with... More

Both myself and my boyfriend are students and really enjoyed our lunch and think it is a fair price and good to have student discount. My boyfriend really loved the Rocket Club! Always enjoyed the food. One of the girls was really friendly, however the other who served us initially was a little off. It wouldn't put us off though... More

I go out for breakfast quite a lot with friends and we thought we'd try a new place for a change. We do tend to rate them among ourselves - for fun - but also to decide if we go back. First impressions: nice, bright comfortable place but the initial greeting wasn't the friendliest. Mr friend arrived first and he... More

Ok, it was January and the weather was not brilliant. A quick lunch and someone suggested Rocket Café as we were in Morningside. The food was good - freshly prepared and tasty. However, being lunchtime and a popular place the door was continually being opened and closed the whole time - or in the case of a bunch of local... More

I've been going to rocket for years now and always enjoy the food they serve. I usually nip in for a take away sandwich or soup and the wide selection of fillings ensures I always have lots to choose from. The produce used is really fresh and soups, stews etc are all home made. Sitting in can sometimes be difficult... More

If you are in Morningside area of Edinburgh this is a must do! Time your visit well as this popular cafe & deli is great. Food, atmosphere,staff and location on the high street. A little pricey but the menu is wide ranging and specials brilliant.

Poor service. When I arrived there was only one free table which was full off dirty plates the waitress came up and asked if she could get me anything I was standing by the messy table and asked if she could clear the table if looks could kill I would not be alive to write this. She huffed and puffed... More

Breakfast in Morningside needed, and stumbled across the Rocket Cafe. A good find with a nice range of cooked and continental breakfast options. Cooked options standard fare, but nice quality ingredients well cooked, served hot and good size portions. Really good coffee. Scanned the sandwich menu and their range of breads, so that looks promising for another visit. Buzzy and... More
