Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a great place for brekky! We popped in on the way to the rugby and were really looked after extremely well by the team but the front of house man, Matt, went way beyond with the attention. Nothing was too much. Not just with...us but with others who were in the cafe. I'd wholly recommend.More

Fantastic freshly prepared food. We had the breakfasts and it set us up for the day. Reasonably priced, fresh & flavoursome with the bonus of being gluten free. If they didn’t tell ya you wouldn’t know it! All topped off with wonderful customer service

We specifically sought this place out during our stay in Edinburgh and it didn't disappoint. Amazing customer service from the owners, who were so cheerful and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. We ordered a chicken & halloumi salad, a pasta dish, a...bacon roll, two hot drinks, two cans of pop and a cake and it came to £26. Most places that offer gluten free try to exploit the customer and triple the price, but that certainly wasn't the case here. All of the food was delicious and presented beautifully. It's such a shame there aren't more of these cafes around. Thank you GF for such a fantastic lunch, it made our day.More

Amazing place and a must visit for anyone with a gluten intolerance. The customer service is excellent, myself and my partner have visited numerous times and the lady behind the counter is always very pleasant and accommodating. The chef clearly takes pride in his work...and this is represented by the quality food.More

I am celiac and it's so great to find in Edinburgh a glutenfree café. My breakfast was delicious, we came here twice. The owners are lovely. Thank you and hopefully the café will have great success!

Wow to find a totally gluten free place to eat was like finding a diamond. Delicious and tempting dishes all reasonably priced. A lovely lady preceded over the cafe and was informative, caring and empathic. The food was served promptly. So nice to find gluten...free dishes you cannot usually have when eating out. This made my day .More

Brilliant little cafe. All food is 100% safe for someone with Coeliac Disease, with no risk of cross-contamination. Wonderful soft bread rolls for my bacon and egg butty, the like of which I have not tasted since diagnosis 6 years ago. Safe brown sauce to...go with it too! My husband (who does not have Coeliac Disease) enjoyed his food just as much as I did, so the GF Cafe has got it spot on! It is so good to support small independent places like GF who work hard and go out of their way to cater for folks with medically restricted diets. The owners are lovely friendly people too. If we're ever up in Edinburgh again then we would return daily and work our way through the menu. Thank you GF ... best bacon, egg butty and pot of tea ever! Sharon & Barrie.More
