Always enjoy a wee coffee break on Reubens, with friends or alone. Ambience, coffee, food, wines and service always first class X

Lovely coffee and a scone with a friend. No problems in sharing a scone, which was ample! Staff were delightful and very helpful from the moment we stepped through the door. The rest of the menu looks lovely, must return for something more substantial! Thank you

Came in for dinner with some friends, and I must admit I wasn't exactly thrilled at the prospect. How wrong was I. The food was really good.. Chicken liver, scallops, and mushroom soup as starters, followed by Thai veg curry, hake, stuffed chicken mains. Could not fault it. Service was excellent, both waitresses attentive and friendly. Can't wait to try... More

We had just landed in Edinburgh and driven to Dunfermline to visit the Abbey only to discover it was not open for another hour. So, we decided to walk through town and spotted Reubens Deli. There were already quite a few people having breakfast so we popped in and found a great table at the window. Service was quick and... More

I love the relaxed, friendly atmosphere here. The menu is varied and the food is good quality. They also also have a selection of gluten free baking. I've been a regular visitor whether it be for morning coffee and cake or lunch and wine with friends since it opened and never been disappointed.

Popped in here for lunch the other day and ordered 2 specials off the board - venison cheesburger and Goat's Cheese Salad. Waited 50 minutes during which time they managed to serve 2 glasses of tapwater and a capacchino. No-one appeared over-concerned about our welfare during all of this time. Must have thought we were real cheapskates spinning out 2... More

If you fancy cake and a coffee this is the best place in town. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are very charming.

Stopped in for a quick lunch after coming back from work early! We both went for the Soup which sounded very interesting - Chestnut & Mushroom with a touch of cream. Gave it a try and we were not disappointed. The venue was quiet so we we did not have to wait long. The soup had really good flavour and... More
