After a dreadful breakfast at our hotel just across the street, we found this little gem and spent most of our mornings there. Fresh coffee, fantastic food, bread and cakes and a warm staff. Terrific atmosphere and deco. Highly recommended. If u get off in hay market train station or on your way back or to Edinburgh zoo - stop by and treat your self

Spotlessly clean and very friendly staff. This was a great find for breakfast - the food was all freshly prepared and well worth waiting for, and the home made rolls were tasty.

Being in a hotel just around the corner for almost a week I made it my morning route getting a great coffee and sandwich at Jacob and his wife/girlfriend.
They made a great impression just having started the place but already having the best sandwiches and salads in town to our (mostly veggie) sandwiches and by being very flexible in the wishes.
Coffee was good and people very friendly and helpfull.
And most people will have a hard time to resist the sweet they offer.

I am sure they will only improve after being settled in the beautifull building.

If food hygene is anything to go on based on cleanliness of toilets, stairs and floors of this cafe then customers should look further around the place.

We were very pleased with the food and coffee we had lunchtime last week. Please give the toilets a coat of paint, and a good clean. Then wash the floors and stairs.

People do notice you know!
