Went here for brunch last weekend. Staffs are friendly and polite. Ordered a vegetarian set with coffee. Portion was generous. I can say they have good selection of food in the menu with reasonable price. The ambiance is perfect for hangout with friends or family. Also kids friendly. Bonus point, free wifi! Definitely should try if you are in Edinburgh!

Great find in Edinburgh - for food and drinks throughout the day. Have to especially call out that breakfast / lunch or indeed my favourite meal of Brunch is a treat! The owners and staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. Highly recommended!

We meet friends here regularly. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and the food is lovely. There's always some great home-made soup and sandwiches and last time, I had a huge plate of chilli nachos. It's always a pleasant experience going there, and the bill is always reasonable.

Myself & 2 friends met here for Sunday Brunch today the 18th of May. We have been desperate to try this place out for sometime now & it was certainly worth the wait. We pre-booked a table as advised by friends as this cafe gets exceptionally busy, especially on Sundays. The atmosphere was relaxed & welcoming. The staff could not have been nicer, very friendly & genuinely helpful. The menu was delightful with all the Sunday brunch favourites. After much deliberation I opted for the french toast with maple syrup & bacon! Absolutely delicious! My only disappointment was a lack of syrups for my latte which is maybe just me being greedy! But apart from that a firm favourite for brunch! Also fun board games and a games table downstairs for laid back visits. I will definitely be back :)

Only stopped here for a coffee and croissant takeaway after seeing them featured in a local magazine. Coffee was lovely (and I am seriously picky...so thumbs up for these guys), croissant fresh and service was friendly and quick. Definitely will stop here for brunch...I hope they continue to do well.
