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

The staff here make you feel like family. They are warm and friendly. The food is always served really quickly, and they serve Artisan Roast Coffee! Their vegetarian breakfast is phenomenal, and I've taken visitors (from Canada) to try the normal breakfast, they all loved it! The cakes are famously delicious as well. Gluten free options are available. The Haven... More

We both opted out of a product on the breakfast and were asked what we wanted to replace the item ,often I have to ask for this but they... More

The breakfasts in here are amazing value for money. The decor is quirky but inviting and the staff are friendly and helpful. Oh, and the cakes are pretty good too, as is the tea and coffee!

Was staying at the premier inn and decided to visit the Haven for breakfast as the premier inn is not great for breakfast! The place was a hive of activity with the waiting staff buzzing around and making the place run like clockwork. We took our seats and ordered 2 full breakfasts and we were not disappointed. The breakfast (sausage,... More
