Just a good breakfast. Nailed it! So greasy, so good, so satisfying. Cheap too. £7.45 gets you a cracking cooked full breakfast with tea or coffee. If that doesn't take your fancy ( but why wouldn't it?!)there's other things like pancakes, porridge, sandwiches and soups. Oh cakes look amazing. But I never have space for one after smashing a massive... More

First visit to The Haven which was recommended by a friend who told us this café offered "the best breakfast". She was right! Excellent, prompt, friendly service. Delicious sausages, bacon, haggis, beans, fried egg, potato scones and toast, all freshly made. Neither of us wanted the tomatoes, mushrooms or black pudding so we were asked if we wanted to replace... More

Go here, you will not regret it. A group of six of us headed down for Sunday breakfast and it was amazing. Everything on the plate was cooked perfectly, a full breakfast came with a cup of tea (as it should be) and the sausage, black pudding and haggis were all delicious and great quality. I was particularly impressed that... More

Went to The Haven on a Sunday and was really surprised how good it actually was. Simple, honest food but done well and for a very reasonable price. This is an old school café and I loved it, bacon, sausage and black pudding rolls galore. They also do a mean stack of pancakes! Coffee was great too. I never had... More

You rarely get cafes like this anymore. Good honest, well made delicious grub. Had a good coffee and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. Light and fluffy pancakes, really tasty. Hubbie had eggy bread with bacon and a cuppa tea. Good service too but not over the top and proper sauce bottles on the table. These girls work hard and people... More

We stayed in Leith and didn't want the normal bog standard hotel breakfast fare,,,,A bit of quick research and we stumbled upon The Haven, A Princes trust project I think and if so, the lasses running it are doing the trust proud......friendly,efficient and doing stuff right. Keep it up

Come here regularly for breakfast and I love it, it's nice and comfortable, down to earth and good home cooking. I like the veggie breakfast and coffee is great too. Haven't tried it but the baking looks amazing.
