For soup, sandwiches and snacks this place is great. Unpretentious and serving freshly made food. Great for just a coffee or a light lunch.

Nice spacious and bright cafe . Open for breakfast , coffee, lunch. French toast with bacon was fine but bacon could have been crispier. Bit of a mix up with the coffee but quickly fixed. Would try again for coffee and cake.

Open until 5 but cannot serve coffee at 4.30 as 'already cleaning machine'. The Print Works next door do a lovely coffee and will now have my future business.

Rocksalt is a cafe situated in the heart of Leith. Edinburgh's old port (where incidentally the queen's ship Britannia is docked.) Rocksalt has been open for a few years but since their recent refurbishment it's improved big time. You can go there for a coffee or breakfast from 8am and sit until you're totally happy stomach and taste bud wise.... More

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
