Ok. So it's good to support local business but I mean seriously....ive never witnessed 3 ladies struggle to deal with so few orders in my life as today. They actually all seemed on a different planet. A young couple were ordering rolls and the lassie must have asked them about 18 times what they're having...lol. To be fair tho the... More

I've been visiting almost every week for the last few months while working nearby, the food has never disappointed me. The full breakfast is one of the best I've had. The soups are just how home made soup should be. Sandwiches are simple and tasty. This is a great down to earth place with classic British café food.

Good decent food served with a smile. Great for breakfast rolls, paninis, coffee etc whether you sit in or take away, as well as more substantial meals. Staff are friendly and welcoming and it's great to have this local cheerful cafe in Corstorphine

My first ever visit, will be my last. Two luke warm weak coffees, two 'hot' filled rolls. One with reheated bacon and one with dried up lorne sausage, cost over £10.00. Place is on Corstorphine road make sure you avoid it.

Forget your fancy high priced trendy breakfast venues, go and visit David at Rumblin Tum for the best bacon roll for miles. Cooked to order as you like it without the pretentious persona.

Visited with my mum and auntie on a typical rainy day so, popped in to dry off. We were all pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I had an omelette which was cooked perfectly with a side portion of chips and a vanilla latte - Very tasty for the price. My mums Panini was generously filled too. Staff... More

I've used this establishment on a few occasions and I find it very good. Nothing pretentious about it. It is what it is a cafe. However the staff are very good and always smiling. Nothing but good service too and the food aint bad either.
