Nice people, good food and teas. This is our third year at the Fringe and we always come here which is as high a recommendation as I can give.

“Great service”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Just called in for coffee and a quick drink.
Excellent attentive staff, as about to close, but happy to serve us, let us sit and drink whilst they cleaned and closed up !
Must say very clean !!
Sandwich/ bagel menu looked scrummy - wish we had gone there earlier !!

“Okay....could be better”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Looked very promising from the street and staff were welcoming. But our breakfast was totally served like it was "to go" even though we stated it was for eat in and we sat at a table. There were about eight tables in all. My tasty granola came in a plastic bowl with lid, our coffees in cardboard cups, Scottish fried breakfast came in a cardboard box, cutlery was plastic, my toast came buttered with jam and brought over to me in a folded over brown paper bag. This must be the culture of the place...just disposable, whether you eat in or out. I felt this was a shame on environmental grounds. But if you don't mind that then by all means check this place out. Scottish fry up was very greasy though. They also had no toilets for customers...strange.

alanrstewart, Manager at Bite Me! sandwich bar, responded to this review, 5 June 2014
I'd like to thank you for your custom this week, and I'm sorry to hear that we didn't meet your expectations.

As I explained when you ordered at the counter, we are a takeaway shop and serve our food in takeaway containers, but despite this our customers are always welcome to sit in.

With regards your point about environmental issues, all of our disposable containers are 100% compostable. You may not have noticed, but we have 3 recycling bins within the shop and we actively encourage our customers to recycle.

I'm surprised that you thought your scottish cooked breakfast was greasy as all items are cooked on a hotplate rather than in a greasy frying pan.

I hope you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh, and hope to see you on your next visit.

“Distinctive, stylish food and great service”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Had a business meeting over a delicious light lunch here a few weeks ago. Truly tasty salad - fantastic vegetarian choices, so unusual!
Interior is intelligently laid out which enables one to have a quiet conversation sitting in, even whilst the cafe buzzes cheerily with take out and other sit in customers.
Quietly classy and super staff.
