Good Food but Pricey

I love the food and the service in here but the price is a little higher than the average in the area even for takeout. You are looking at around £6 for a basic salad with any additional items priced at 75p. It is nice as a treat but unfortunately, not the kind of place most can afford to eat... read more

I really dig this place. I think for the price - I paid around £7 for a Turkish breakfast - that the value is great and the food is really fab. Tasty and satisfying. The atmosphere is nice too and the cakes are ace if not a slightly overpriced. TI could eat the Baklava all day long! Will definitely be... More

I visit Rocksalt often, the food is good but pricey. The staff are nice, but generally very slow. But the food is so excellent I could put up with it's shortcomings. Today, I stood around waiting for a bacon roll for 40 minutes. The staff were reasonably apologetic, but didnt seem to be in a particular hurry to help me.... More

The food here is great, but it is on the pricey side. I paid £6.30 for a salad today. A lot more expensive than other shops around. however, the food is good and very tasty. The staff are friendly and the service is quick. There is a takeaway option or you can sit in (inside and outside)

We thought we would give this a shot and it really as great. The menu is well varied and I went for the Turkish breakfast which was sublime. Good value certainly as finished off with Baklava and some cake and coffee. I will most certainly be back and maybe prefer this to my normal brunch hangout at Area C Coffeehouse!

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 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.

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
