We dropped in here for a quick drink, soup and a roll. Nothing too demanding I would have thought. The soup was insubstantial coloured water, tasted disgusting and was inedible. A complaint to the waitress was met with a muted, unconcerned "sorry". The bill was paid in full as she took away the full bowl of orange/yellow slop. I wonder... More

Nice, tiny cafe on Grassmarket. Had nice bacon butties for breakfast but next time they weren't so good. Need to maybe be more consistent?

The place was dirty, the staff unfriendly and slooow (for a place that sells fast food, it was unbelievable!), the food very greasy and not tasty at all. Absolutely hated it.

We visited Café Jacques several times during our recent stay in Edinburgh. Perfect place for breakfast/brunch before a day exploring the city. Plenty of choice, food very good and friendly, helpful staff.

Sat for twenty minutes before being able to order. Place was empty. Waitress sat next to us to take order. Still waiting on the water. Food was ok. Just felt they couldn't,t be bothered.

Great menu for a lunch or late breakfast. Good kid options and very accommodating staff. Location on the Grass Market is very convenient to the Castle and Royal Mile without all the crowds and tourists. Great people watching from the outdoor seating. Reasonable prices.

After browsing the eating places available on a very busy hot summer day in Grassmarket we came across Cafe Jacques which was nicely situated at the end of the street with seating available outside. We were greeted very swiftly by an attentive member of staff and given our menu. The menu had a wide selection of dishes for a lunch... More

We popped in here late on a Monday evening seeking some tea and dessert, so we weren't disappointed with homemade cheesecake, and caramel slices. Staff were very friendly and there was a nice atmosphere in the café.
