Popped in for a coffee one day and another drink a few days later. Very casual but not a bad place to relax. Still have yet to try the food.

Really enjoy spending 1h or 2h in this militant coffee. On the walls are some pics from Syria, interesting books at your disposition on tables, calm music. Good food with vegan options. Loving the black humour and manners of the staff ! I highly recommend...More

This is a nice relaxed place to come and sit and while away a bit of time over a nice bite to eat. There is a nice selection of wraps etc with plenty of choice of fillings and a good choice for vegetarians as well.

My favourite Leith cafe for their great coffee, never beaten absolutely delicious BLT on a bagel and relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Brilliant value for money.

Such delicious food that's good for the soul! Interesting place to be with quirky staff. As time's gone on its only improved. Since more staff have been added the service has become quicker and slicker. I like it very much!
