Needed to get some work done while we were in Edinburgh so popped into Cafe Renroc for a latte and a bit of wi-fi hogging. We sat in the big spacious and beautiful basement, the wi-fi signal was excellent, and the atmosphere was one of peace and relaxation. We didn't once feel hassled,even as the sun came out and lunch... More

Wonderful place. Has the ambience of a continental "terrasje". We sat outside watching the world go by. Even when it started to rain we simply moved inside to a lovely, cosy vaulted-ceiling, underground setting. After we had had drinks and had waited for more than an hour for food the waitress apologised profusely and said that the kitchen had never... More

Dinner on last Friday couldn't have been better. Good menu, great service, excellent food! Thank you. Also been several times for breakfast and lunch. The staff are always very nice. When they are busy expect to wait a wee bit longer than usual but the food and lovely staff make up for the small wait. The outdoor seating area is... More

We have visited Renroc many times where we have had several excellent meals. However this would be our first and last time for breakfast. Service was very slow waiting half an hour for our drinks and then our food was cold when it did eventually arrive. Decent value for money but would not go back for breakfast again.

We went for midweek coffee and bite to eat. The soup was really good and hot served with crusty bread and good value for money. The coffee was good however did feel it was a bit pricey for the size of cup. We sat downstairs, the décor was really nice but it was a wee bit chilly. On a nice... More

This cafe was just down from the apartment we stayed in. We arrived hungry and damp after our Holyrood trip and immediately were shown to a table downstairs after placing our order. Good coffee and very tasty soup and not a bat of an eyelid when my son put together 3 sandwich filling requests (not a usual combination) for his... More

Very friendly service and delicious food. Great to eat outside when it is nice. Lovely beers. Only downside is the short opening hours.

Possibly the best place to sit outside in Edinburgh - good fun and nice wine. Everyone is friendly - the salads are very tasty!

Bright and spacious, with a large, comfortable area downstairs Renroc is a gem of a local cafe. It is a chilled-out place to go, especially mid-morning and the afternoon. The coffee is strong and dark, and the choice of drinks is excellent, including West beer on tap. Renroc can be very busy at lunchtimes and when the school crowd sweep... More

My friends and I stayed in Edinburgh recently and since we were staying in a flat nearby this cafe, we had our brunch in Cafe Renroc twice, in the area downstairs. We really like the way they've done the place; the interior and the atmosphere are great. We also enjoyed our food, especially the eggs Benedict and the Hillside sandwich.... More
