I love this place, this is the best patisserie in Edinburgh hands down! Mimis and other bakeries are not a patch on this place, the quality of cakes and tarts here are just unbeatable. I suggest the Red Velvet cake, chocolate mousse, Boston cream pie or chocolate & vanilla cake..! Delicious! I'm a regular here and can't praise this wee... More

I think the food is overpriced. The quality of the food, although, good is not good enough for the prices charged. All in all a good place for a croissant or a tart to sit in. Staff is friendly and they have a lot of space.

We had lunch here on a cold wet day in June and it was the bees knees. Delicious home cooking and cakes with barista coffees. The day turned lovely after the heart warming food and welcome. The staff are a delight.

this tiny little place sells great tasting food and it is really cheap for the standard of food they produce. Give it a try, they always have lovely cakes to choose from too.

I started buying cakes, tarts etc from manna house bakery around 10 years ago, they were fantastic. Then all of a sudden they all became nowhere near as good. This was because the lady who made them had left to open her own place with her partner, this place being La Cerise on junction street. I was very happy when... More

Great coffee and tea, brilliant home baking, lovely staff and they just delight in having dogs - magic for a hot drink and roll at breakfast - don't miss it

AND . . and we have just had an in-house 40th Birthday Celebration - the cake of course being especially made for us. Claire + Martin are delightful as are... More

This is our second time here and won't be our last. It is a tiny place with very few tables but both times we managed to get squeezed in. This time I had a salad which was very good and my husband a sandwich which was also good. The cakes look excellent but unfortunately we were in a rush! It... More

I'm sitting eating some of the most delicious and tastiest cakes that I've had in a long while and I just feel that I had to share this with everyone. We all need a treat and the best ones are those we secretly give to ourself. Le Cerise is one of my secret treat to myself, it's like my spa... More
