Went for breakfast here before visiting the Royal Yacht Britannia. It's so easy to find from Ocean Terminal, just get off the Bus, double back on yourself, cross the road and head straight on until you get to the lights and turn left. the building is on the next corner and is painted bright green so you can't miss it.
Was the first person in there in the morning and got a nice welcome form the lady serving. Ordered a cappuccino whilst I perused the menu. The decor is nice and bright and fresh and the place seemed very clean. The coffee arrived quickly and was of excellent quality and I ordered a croque madame for breakfast as I didn't fancy a full scottish.
The dish was served with a short wait and during this time some more customers arrived. The chef himself brought out the food which looked very inviting.
First bite and wow - it was seriously good and cooked by someone who knows what he is doing - served with a small dressed side salad to complement it, the quality of the ingredients was superb - I know it's only a ham and cheese toastie with cheese and a fried egg on top but it was really delicious and filled me up nicely.
Had to thank the chef for a delicious breakfast when I left and next time I am in Edinburgh I will make a special journey out there for Lunch or Dinner. From Prices Street, just jump on any bus to Ocean terminal - only takes 10 minutes or so.
To say I was impressed was an understatement - a warm welcome from the lady who served me and a nice thank you from the chef when I left together with the quality of what I had at a very reasonable price in nice surroundings will make me return.
