Brilliant little cafe, lovely staff, great food, AMAZING home made cakes! The place is so unassumingly unique and cute and the food really doesn't disappoint. Great cooked breakfast, not greasy at all. Highly recommend.

The food is lovely, the staff are friendly, the coffee is good, the decor is nice and it is always very clean with tables cleared and wiped asap even when very busy. Overall, I love this place. It is always packed on weekends but you never feel rushed and I haven't ever noticed the quality of the food dip. The... More

This is one of the warmest, friendliest cafes in the whole of Edinburgh.....The lovely Havenettes bake all the cakes themselves and they are scrumptious!!!!!! Scones are to die for!!!!!! Kenny and Nic

My daughter and her boyfriend popped in for Sunday pancakes, bacon and syrup and she is still raving about them. We went for take away cakes the week after and my husband drooled over the pancakes as they passed him to waiting tables. The cakes were delicious and the portions huge - we had upside down peach cobbler with cream,... More

There was a nice homely feel to the place, and the staff were very friendly. It was fairly busy and you could tell that a lot of the customers were regulars. Although I only popped in for a coffee and cake, I found that even the cakes were far from ordinary. It's nice to see a good bit of care... More

After looking for the best pancakes in Edinburgh we came across The Haven! It didn't disappoint! By far the best pancakes I have ever tasted! Well done guys! We will be back soon! Great atmosphere with the old fashioned furniture and the warm feel! Might try the "pancakes of the day" next time!!

I've been to this cafe numerous times and introduced a number of friends to it. The experience is always the same - First class. The establishment itself has a friendly, fun atmosphere and the staff are always welcoming and helpful. I love the food, cakes, pancakes and coffee, everything feels like it's been prepared thoughtfully, and tastes great. The whole... More

This is a fantastic little cafe, one of edinburgh's hidden gems. Staff are lovely, food is fantastic. Reasonable priced. Overall a great little place to go for great food and a read of a paper or even just to look at the quirky decor.

Popped in with my girlfriend for lunch and we both ordered soup and a sandwich with a pot of tea. Very tasty. My girlfriend also ordered a smoothie and a chocolate cake and the total bill was under £20. I don'tknow of anywhere else in Edinburgh where we could eat tasty food for that price! We'll be back soon to... More
