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.

I just love breakfast. I'm a huge fan of bacon, scrambled eggs etc etc, washed down with a good strong black coffee. I don't usually write reviews for anything, but when you have a breakfast this good, with ingredients of this quality (and being in Edinburgh this breakfast boasted haggis too), in a tiny, local, friendly cafe with a pleasing...

Dropped in for coffee and cake on a Saturday afternoon. Welcoming host. Nice atmosphere. Delicious coffee. Nice baking. Hope to return for something more substantial. Worth seeking out.

The small café serves tasty food. Nice atmosphere, mostly local people that know the owners. Coffee is really good. Café is located in a side street, but very close to Leith Walk. Nice experience.
