“Lovely spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I went here for lunch with a friend from work and it was really nice. I had a Turkish-style wrap which was packed with hummous, roasted vegetables and olives. It was a generous serving and was really tasty. My colleague had the Turkish meatballs with cous cous which looked lovely. All washed down with apple tea. Service was nice and friendly too.
Definitely worth a try.

“Great find ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I was down for work myself and a work mate were looking for something to eat. We found this little cafe didn't look much from out side , but we thought we would give it a bash and saved us eating at hotels like normal.

The food came very quickly and wow really good quality and very cheap for the area.

Defiantly worth a visit.

“disgusting food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Food at Cafe Truva is just disgusting. I was in this restaurant with my friends for a coffee and something nice to eat. Coffee was lovely but food !!!!! Everything is made by Lidl even mayonnaise (you can read that on the bottle). Baked potatoes was overcooked I chose one with tuna !!! how you can serve baked potatoes with tuna whitout mayo ??? cheese was very chewy - like Lidl cheese from micro !!!

“Great little cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Lovely place for a quick coffee and snack before my appointment. Sat outside beside the water of Leith and watched 2 adult swans and 7(!) cygnets swim by.
Lovely coffee and friendly staff.
