Renroc will never let you down

I use this place on a daily basis - Why? Coz it's good, fairly inexpensive, the coffee is great, the food always delicious, and there's always a friendly member of staff on hand to help and serve you, and the customers are a friendly bunch too - That's why I go here every day and my work colleagues... read more

Lovely beer friendly staff however it was definitely not Aberdeen Angus burger,more birds eye, and should not say this on the menu, Will not eat there again but will have a beer. (I'm a trained chef.)

This little gem is hidden in the back streets off Leith Walk, and is well worth venturing off the main beaten track. We called in for a late lunch, and were delighted with the quality of the individually prepared quich and sandwiches.

An oasis of calm yet so close to busy Leith Walk. Great place to enjoy a cold beer for a lazy afternoon. Friendly staff, good food and fast wifi. What more can you ask?

Great coffee and cake, in a hidden corner of Edinburgh. Wonderful atmosphere inside. Make a stop here if it's the only place you go.

Had the pleasure of a coffee and a piece of cake at Cafe Renroc with my wife. Sat outside in the sun which was just fantastic. The staff were very friendly and helpful, coffee was great too. Don't live in the area but will make a point of going again.

My friend took us to this lovely little cafe for breakfast on easter sunday. They had a lovely selection of breakfast options, vegetarian included. I went for eggs benedict with salmon - all beautifully cooked and good value. The cafe was clean, bright and pleasant and the staff were welcoming and friendly. I would certainly go again.

This café is tucked away on Montgomery Street and is great if you want to escape the tourists. It is very small but on a sunny day you can sit outside (they even provide blankets if it's a bit chilly). Lovely coffee and cakes but also freshly made simple lunches such as quiche of the day.

We ate as a party of 20 on a Saturday evening. They don't normally open on Saturday night, but the owner opened especially for our party and we had the place to ourselves. The atmosphere was fantastic, the food delicious, hot and filling, and the service very attentive - thank you to Jenny for looking after us all so well!... More

There are numerous cafés in Leith but I doubt if there are many as good as the Renroc. I use it on my way to the football at at Easter Road. Service is always good and the food never disappoints. Can be a bit cramped at times if busy, which it frequently is. Off the main walking routes but worth... More
