Hadn't been to Renroc in a long time, but due to personal circumstances, found myself staying just round the corner for a week. Met a friend for lunch - I had the veggie breakfast and she had a club sandwich - both were excellent in both taste and value for money. Found myself stopping for breakfast rolls and cake after...

We only went for breakfast but I would love to go back for some evening food and entertainment. Quirky little cafe with lovely food at a great price

Coffee is always good here and the atmosphere is friendly. Great place to meet and off the beaten track.

Fantastic little cafe, super lovely interior. Sat down and ordered brunch. Eggs benedict was perfect, and the salmon was a game changer. Best eggs benedict I've ever eaten. 10/10 would brunch again!

Great, tiny wee cafe, a local gem. It does a roaring trade, especially in the summer when they have tables outside. Have been here on and off several times over years but not for ages. Dropped in for a quick lunch, my usual soup and bread staple. They had roasted red pepper soup with good bread and it was very... More

Visiting daughter who is studying in Edinburgh and had walked past this unpretentious place a few times and elected to pop in. Surprisingly good menu for a small cafe tucked away in a quiet corner of Edinburgh. We had a really fresh breakfast (mine Scottish, daughter vegetarian). Obliging owner was happy to tweak things as daughter is vegan and this... More

I come here fairly frequently, and while I still enjoy it (especially in summer), the food is not what it used to be, both in terms of the menu (which changed a while back, it's now much more conventional) and of the quality of the ingredients and preparation.

Small & friendly cafe with great food in a quiet street north of Calton Hill. Put away the "wee monty" breakfast of two sausages, two eggs, smoked bacon and fried potatoes and you are well-fuelled for a day's tramping the streets of hilly Edinburgh. Didn't attempt the Full Scottish, which I think also includes haggis & black pudding, as wanted... More

Such a great find as I dropped my eldest son and his belongings into a new flat, and needed some food before the long drive home. Lovely Illy coffee and 'The Full Montgomery' set me up brilliantly for a 400+ mile drive. Will look the place out again when in Edinburgh - meanwhile, get there as soon as you can.
