coffee

I like to pop in for a coffee and maybe a Crispy Croissant, you can sit outside or inside depending on the weather, it is my preferred cafe in Leith. Relaxed and quiet atmosphere.

A lovely cafe/deli for snacks with an eastern mediterranean twist. The cakes are also fantastic.I've been several times now and on each occasion the service has been good and the staff friendly. A good place for a quick snack or a leisurely cup of coffee with a newspaper.

I have visited this place serval times, they have an excellent weekend menu, but coffee was a disappointment the last couple of times. Still worth a visit and staff is welcoming and friendly!

I can't say we had a great time here. We popped in this afternoon for a sandwich and a drink. The first thing I noticed was that it was extremely hot inside and the tables were pushed very close together so we didn't feel very comfy. We seemed to wait a long while before somebody came to take our order.... More

Great coffee, sandwiches, veggie options and the best baklava you could ever want (much better than a lot of the ones we've eaten in the middle east), always homemade and totally fresh, served by really friendly Turkish owners. A super place for a good daytime pit stop.

The staff here has always been unfriendly every time I've been here. Their description of large and small salad boxes is unclear and the waitresses don't help making it clear at the beginning. They did not give me what I wanted in my salad box. The waitress made an absolute mess dumping each ingredient into my salad box, leaving a... More
