“A great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Have now visited many times, working fairly close to the bakery. Mostly for a lunch, which to date gave always been great. Maybe just a sandwich, but fillings are really tasty and the side salad is a great mix. Will no doubt be a regular haunt for sometime.

“Wow! What a find - just exceptional coffee and patisseries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

Found this place this morning and what a find, just delightful, professional people offering the highest standard of service and Artisan Bakery products as I have seen in Edinburgh. Well worth a detour to experience and put plenty money in the meter as you will want to stay a bit longer than expected.
Congratulations to the owners and staff - your efforts are greatly appreciated.

“Our favorite breakfast spot in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

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

“Just great for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

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.
