I have been to Haven several times now, each time the food has been lovely and the service is friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

When arriving to the cafe it was very busy which to us suggested it was a good place to go. We happily waited for 5 mins max for a table and the staff were very efficient on cleaning tables and seating customers. Great menu to choose from, we attended for breakfast after visiting Edinburgh overnight. The pancakes were very tasty... More

Came so close to just staying at the premier inn for breakfast, but do glad we ventured out and found this place. Great breakfast, quality ingredients, lovely atmosphere and service. Would love to come back to try cakes sometime!

Visited the cafe on a quiet Tuesday afternoon for a couple of hangover full breakfasts. They were terrible! The beans were the only nice things on the plate. Bacon was fatty, black pudding and haggis were both very dry and the 1 sausage was cheap. I have previously rated The Haven 5 out of 5 but we were left so... More

This is not your ordinary greasy spoon, first and foremost is the quality of the food served. From Artisan bread, fresh rolls and homebaked treats that are delicious. But be warned, go early in the morning because it is so popular you will find it difficult to get a table. Well done to all staff at the Haven. Hildo

Try and get breakfast here whenever I can. Food is great, staff are friendly and it always has a buzz about the place. It's always busy, so go early to grab a seat (take aways available too). Pancakes in here are amazing! Definitely a firm favourite as my local breakfast place.

Since it opened a few years ago the Haven has not faltered and continues to create delicious breakfast and lunches - always served with cheerful smiles. One of my favourite dishes at lunch is their 'half and half' - basically a small portion of soup with half a panini. Great if you want a lighter lunch but don't want to... More

Been here for the first time and I love it. Cheap breakfast, totally delicious (£5 for pancakes and bacon). Staff are all friendly. Environements lovely and comfortable. Only criticism is that it gets a little busy (to be expected) and they don't take dogs.

I love the Haven Cafe. You always get a warm reception from the friendly staff. The choice of food is great for a wee cafe and it is a very comfortable place to eat. From bacon rolls to beautifully baked cakes. Decent latte to suki loose leaf tea. It's well worth a visit

This was our first visit to The Haven, and we were not disappointed in anyway. Lovely coffee followed by filled breakfast rolls, which were really tasty, then we noticed the great looking Raspberry scones, and we decided to share one, [as we really did need, but they looked so good, we got greedy] oh! it was lovely, so glad we...
