Do not miss this place. Run by two fabulous ladies who really know their stuff and love their food. You will always find something special and a bit different here and their own home cooked take away dishes are fabulous.

I love the Mouse Hole Deli. Based in the great wee pseudo village that is Portobello, the Mouse Hole Deli delivers a fantastic selection of food at very reasonable prices. The owners are very friendly and go out their way to help customers.

It's not the broadest range but it's only a wee shop but the ladies have selected a good range of delicious gluten free products. Friendly knowledgable service makes this a great place to shop.

I was so happy when the Mouse Hole opened, tasty cheese, bread and treats right on my door step! Super lovely staff, filled with knowledge and advice. Always happy to point out their new stock or help in choosing presents. They will make you a great sandwich too! I really recommend the almond twists, they are delicious.

Excellent Deli in the heart of Portobello, great food, great variety, great location. Elaine & Louise couldnt be more helpful. Want a specific cheese, just ask, want a specific cold cut, just ask nothing is a too much trouble. Their homemade soup is very tasty indeed. My mother doesnt make soup anymore just a wee trip to the Mouse Hole... More

Always a pleasure visiting Elaine and Louise : ) They have a new amazing chilli cheese, you have got to try it !! I made some mini quiches for a baking session Patrick was having at work. The chilli cheese ones went down really well as did the chorizo and roasted pepper. Thanks to the girls for amazing ingredients raised... More

Love this wee place! Really lovely fresh food (their homemade salsa and hummous is to die for) and a wonderful selection of products. These ladies are so helpful and friendly AND they support local makers and suppliers. Gems, the pair of 'em.
