Excellent Cafe

Delish breakfast to round off a long walk. Perfect Neighbourhood Cafe complimented by excellent service in a welcoming environment. Perfect to sit ..enjoy coffee and relax with my Bridge (loony spaniel - thankfully Renroc is dog friendly)

This is a lovely little street cafe tucked away from the very busy local streets. There is a good range of hot or cold food and always some cake treats to ogle or sample, depending upon willpower! This is a nice retreat to savour coffee or wine and food with friends. I have been a few times now and it... More

Great wee spot. Had a lovely evening with the kids (they ate for £1) with great service and food. We go back because you get high quality food and coffee without the hefty price tag, a rarity nowadays. Staff are great and best of all everyone is welcome...yes, even dogs.

Five years a fan. Renroc is everything you want from a neighbourhood cafe: warm haven, full of good things. Those include good croissants and that sauerkraut sandwich, Pelham's patent soups plus help, advice, jokes and an excellent traffic warden Early Warning System. When they make the Edinburgh version of Friends (there's a thought) it should be set here... And the... More

Food was very good. Unfortunately despite it being a premises that serve food they allow dogs in which is extremely unhygienic. Such a shame.

Hello SteveEater.... Thank you for your review that I read with astonishment. I am glad you enjoyed your meal with us but am saddened to read that you view my cafe as unhygienic on the basis that I allow dogs in the premises. We allow dogs in cafe Renroc in the upstairs area only as food preparation takes place in... More

I have only great things to say about Renroc! We have been many times. We return for the yummy coffee, tasty menu, friendly staff and comfy surroundings The staff are so kind to our toddler who loves visiting (good kids menu too). I recommend the breakfast, really scrumptious but so much better quality than a greasy spoon!

Love love love Renroc, Its welcoming, friendly and totally charming. I pop in now and again for a coffee and breakfast and always greeted with a smile. Locals always have time for a natter. Eggs benedict and the full monty get my vote :)

Lovely cafe that serves a good breakfast - though it did take a while to arrive but it was only because there was one chef in the kitchen. The sandwiches that were served looked delicious too and definitely worth a return just to try them!
