I've eaten here several times and it's always been good. Great choice of foods from breakfast /snacks/soups/bigger meals. Helpful friendly staff too which always makes a difference! Good value - and takeaway service.

If you are looking for a hearty breakfast Rocket is the place. A big choice and some interesting alternatives to the full Scottish if you don't fancy that though I would heartily recommend it.

We have been going to Rocket as a family and individually since it opened near my work. The food, coffee and friendly service have always been brilliant. We asked Graeme to cater for 60 guests for our anniversary and we were very happy with the delicious spread and how the food was delivered and presented. Our guests were equally pleased... More

This is a great little cafe, one of many in Morningside. I suspect quite a bit of their business comes from take away trade but they have several tables and a really extensive menu. Plenty of choice for vegetarians and vegans and a great selection of coffees and home baking. Generous portions and everything seems to be really fresh. The... More

Used to visit every Saturday when I worked down the road and it was my favourite cafe in Edinburgh! Now that I don't work in the area anymore, I miss it!! I tried to take my boyfriend in for lunch at the weekend but it was sooo busy that there was no way we would be able to get a... More

A cute little cafe on Morningside Road with an affordable and interesting selection of sandwiches and soups (which are tasty yet very big, I couldn't finish mine) in a relaxed setting. Only downsides are the lack of space, plus I wouldn't recommend to get a coffee and all. Food is great though, and the service is friendly :)

Very good all round food, fresh and value for money. Small with few tables. I was alone and a Glaswegian couple kindly offered to let me share their table.

Popped in for a breakfast and was very impressed. I had a cooked breakfast with everything fresh and piping hot. My partner had the scrambled eggs and bacon which was excellent as well.

Morningside has lots of places to eat and drink but the best right now is Rocket. Its quite small but has a huge range of sit - in and take away food. It's well worth a wait for a table at busier times and their breakfast is excellent. The staff are very good and always try to please. Well worth... More
