“Fab find and great coffee”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Glad I stumbled across this great little place on a recent trip back to Edinburgh. Coffee was delicious and breakfast really hit the spot. Make sure you stop by The Meadows Box if you are thirsty or peckish.

“Fast food CAN be great food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Ignored the nearby mobile competition due to previous bad experience and tried the Meadow Box on recommendation. Sampled a fresh morning roll stuffed with the best sausage ever (I'm entitled to my opinion, and it is somewhat informed!) Crombie's Auld Reekie washed down with a cup of freshly brewed coffee. The Meadow Box prove the adage that you can't get a silk purse from a a sow's ear by opting for the best ingredients and preparing them with care to produce a great product. And as an added bonus quick friendly service from a Scottish girl! Imagine that in the centre of Edinburgh. Try for yourself.

“A jewel in the Meadows' crown”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

What a fab wee haunt. Super tasty and healthy eats and friendly, smiley service. If only there were more like this, especially in an area rapidly being engulfed by something quite the opposite!

“Amazeballs!!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I love this wee place, it's got a great smell of bacon wafting as you walk up to it. AND... I love the fact that it's close enough to me to have ice cream for breakfast! Especially because it's so tasty!

“Proper Tardis”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile


What a find! Was at the Meadows festival at the weekend and found this hidden gem. This wee tardis has everything! Loads of freshly cooked snacks, soups and 'happy' sausages. There was even room for a full on coffee machine, awesome coffee on the go. But on a warm sunny day the ice cream was a winner, will definitely be remembering about this place the next time I'm up in the area.
