This is my favourite place for lunch when I'm in Leith. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and make a point of asking how we are. The food is excellent quality and the coffee is always delicious. Rocksalt is dog friendly too. We have been taking our German Shepherd with us to Rocksalt since she was a puppy... More

Stayed in Leith overnight for a trip to the theatre. Found Rocksalt on Sunday morning looking for breakfast for 5 of us. Great find. Food cooked to order. Delicious. Good selection of teas and coffees and fabulous cakes. Staff were very friendly . Would reccomend to friends and would revisit.

I like Rocksalt a lot and go there for lunch quite often. There is plenty of competition in the area but it has a nice feel to it, the food is fresh and tasty and it is always interesting. My only caveat is that if you go a peak times the staff do seem to get a bit swamped and... More

This is now the second time I've been to rock salt. The great things are the location, the nice atmosphere and the amazing food at really decent prices. Things that could be improved are attentiveness by staff, if you ask me what I want and I tell you then I don't expect to have to remind you twice to get... More

Went with a friend for lunch in July and was very happy with the food and service. Back again today on my own for a Sunday lunch and was not happy with the overall experience. Staff was not friendly and difficult to approach. The portion size of food has shrunk considerably since the last visit (I am not a big... More

From the moment you enter, treated like a "house guest". Great service, great coffee and great pastries. Nice ambience for a leisurely coffee and snack. What's not to like? Will definitely return.

Me and my partner go here almost every Sunday for breakfast. We love it. Great coffee, great vibes and even better food. I guess we're not particularly flamboyant considering we always get the same thing, but they just do it so well! I'll go for the Full Scottish, she'll have the Eggs Benedict, or some variation thereof. We have gotten... More

3 of us Stopped in for a quick sandwich on a Monday Lunchtime - we ordered at 1:05 and had to chase our order repeatedly until it eventually arrived at 1:50 had to wolf down to get back to the office for 2. The staff were borderline annoyed that we complained and no apology was given.
