Popular Marchmont breakfast stop and deservedly so. Bacon rolls and scones recommended. Staff friendly and helpful. Dogs allowed and usually offered water.

Arrive slightly after 1pm. Very poor sandwich selection. One sandwich left which I chose. Took a long time to arrive so went up to check to find that it had been burnt and that they would bring another. Apart from the fact that they didn't...More

Having been to Cobbs before, the kids and I loved this place and we're excited to go back after swimming. We went just before mid-day so thought we'd have lunch. My son and I ordered "the biggest bacon roll", hmmm not sure what was big...More
