“Service WITHOUT a smile”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Been in twice now as it's very near my work. Won't be going back. Food is OK and reasonbaly priced but service is appalling. "couldn't care less" attitude.

Some jolly, friendly staff would make a huge difference.

“Disappointing Breakfast”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Was visiting Edinburgh on a short break and we popped in early on Saturday morning for 2 Full Scottish Breakfasts. Personally was disappointed in the food. The bacon and sausage appeared to have been pre-cooked and just reheated. The toast and egg were fine as they were prepared fresh. Tea and coffee were good.

“A real find in the City Centre parallel to Princes Street.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My heading says it all. Open morning through to late afternoon I've even visited twice in the one day,
Ideal for solo diners who don't require a pub lunch.
My favourite is their home made soup with a roll of choice for under £3.00. One day it was sweet potato and chizoro, the next brocolli and stilton. Or how about a Rocky Road slice with a latte?
Take away service is excellent You should see the freshness of the fillings for baked potatoes etc. Staff from local offices and shops make the most of this find. Don't delay......go today!
