I visited Cafe Jacques on Saturday morning and to begin with it was a pleasant experience to relax and enjoy a coffee. When my partner and 2 year old joined me we ordered a couple sausage rolls and a kids breakfast, I asked for simply a piece of toast and beans with a sausage for the kids meal. The food... More

Dish was brought out with flecks of cheese in it- inquired as to the no cheese request and the response " chef put it on and we picked it off"! Really not worth the effort of sitting down in the...

Felt I had to review after reading the mix of reviews. Went for breakfast and it was just fine, nothing bad nothing mind blowing, just breakfast! (Not sure what some people expect from breakfast?!)

This is a very small but extremely quaint shop. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was friendly. Wish I had gone back for a second meal!

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.
