Lovely ! Would recommend!!

Very nice food and staff. Only negative was that the food was quite a bit more expensive if you sit in rather than take away. A small increase is understandable but it's quite big. Anyway that doesn't put me off because the food is delicious and the staff are very nice !

We chose this cafe to have breakfast on Sunday morning and I doubt we could've have chosen better! They offered a great range of breakfast options, from full cooked to pancakes to French toast, and loads in between. They also offered gluten free bread for toast, which is not often found in cafes elsewhere. Service was friendly but efficient and... More

Popped in for a couple of drinks and cakes, reasonably priced at £7 for the lot. Friendly and helpful staff, nicely decorated inside, clean toilets. Other food looked very tempting!

Stumbled on this palace near Holy Corner. Small but pleasant environment. Six of us had a mixture of cooked breakfasts, scones, breakfast rolls and coffee. All really good. Certainly one of the best cooked breakfasts that I have had, and reasonably good value. Got pretty busy, which is a good sign. Well done.

I have been a few times at different times. The staff are always friendly and their coffee is exquisite. Well worth a visit if you are in Edinburgh.

My dad and I were searching a while for some soup and ended up here. Very impressed! There were three options of soup available and we also had a focaccia. There are tonnes of options of sandwich fillers, and lots of suggestions which all sound very tasty! Will have to come back and try them! Very good value for money... More

A great array of options await in this gem at the top of Morningside Road. More sandwich options than anywhere I've been and every time I've been in, enjoyed it thoroughly. They do lots more than sandwiches though and passing salads look great too. I've yet to make it to cake-course but a good selection of non-gluten options blend with... More

Great wee cafe in a very nice area of Edinburgh. Nice food and friendly staff. Nearest train stop is Edinburgh Waverley and nearest bus routes 11, 15, 16, 5, 23, 36 and 45.
