Super little place with a friendly movie theme atmosphere.
Very inexpensive and excellent value for money.

Since our recent visit, we have recommended this place to friends. We didn't have high expectations when we went, partly due to its location at Tollcross. It's a small friendly family run cafe and has a loyal local clientele. The meals are very reasonably priced and portions are generous.
I ordered haddock and chips which is usually a safe bet. It was excellent, freshly cooked and generous. Better in fact than the fish that I was served at a more expensive restaurant. We will certainly go back again.

We wanted somewhere to take the grandchildren before the cinema on a Sunday afternoon. Despite having lived in Edinburgh for several decades, with one or two exceptions not appropriate for kids, Tollcross is not somewhere I would go for a culinary experience. This find following a trawl through T A reviews fitted the bill perfectly. The food was excellent, freshly cooked and the menu met both grandparents' and children's aspirations - something which is quite difficult to do. The location was ideal - in fact within 5 minutes walk of 4 different cinemas, the King's theatre and the Usher Hall. The decor was a conversation topic and although the furnishings were fairly basic,the service quick and attentive. There is even free wi fi if you need to book your tickets while you eat. The only thing that was smaller than expectations was the bill and who would complain about that. Whether you want a quick snack or a substantial meal, if you don't mind not having crystal chandeliers and waiters in bow ties, this is just the place. One caution, not all the location maps show it exactly where it is. It is just at the beginning of Earl Grey Street (number 4) at the Tollcross junction end.

Me and my boyfriend were hungry one afternoon and decided to try somewhere different. This little place is an absolute gem. 3 course meal for £7, and not little tiny portions either. I got nachos, fish and chips and a banoffee pie when I was here, and couldn't finish everything. You would expect the fish alone to cost this much, so getting a starter and dessert thrown in too, was a lovely addition.
Service isn't only friendly, but also quick, but not so quick that you haven't finished the previous course. How a cafe/restaurant should be.

Would highly recommend this cafe to all. 10 out of 10.

I stumbled across this place doing one of my 'coffee crawls' on a boring Saturday. What a find! Decorated in an old school Italian style, the walls are covered with pictures of icons like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra etc. Salvo himself is a great host and let me practise my fumbling Italian :) There is a fab breakfast menu, Continental and Scottish, plus a wide selection of ice creams, pasta dishes and paninis. The coffee is great quality and you get a lot for the price! The best option is to come here of a weekday lunchtime as they do a 3 course lunch for £7. Unpretentious, charming, and belly-filling!
