“Few things compare...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Absolutely love this hidden gem. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food speaks for itself. I regularly make the trip from my workplace for a wrap at lunchtime and have never been disappointed. Fresh, home made ingredients all served with a smile. You have to try it!

“Don't miss this amazing falafel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Mr. Omar at Khartoum Cafe is a wonderful hidden secret in the mishmash of cafes, restaurants and cake shops in this part of town. His falafels are expertly handmade before he assembles them before your eyes with a wide variety of toppings from hummous and baba ganoush to avocado, loads of vegetables and an absolutely mouth-watering chili sauce.

Whilst the outside of this lovely cafe may need a little work, the inside is full of warm and good vibes and of course, excellent food. See you there!

“The best homemade falafel in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

Khartoum Cafe is my regular choice for lunch break. All food is homemade, always fresh and serve with love. Especially I recommend falafel wrap with humus !

Enjoy;)

“Best falafel in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

Owner makes the felafel himself and his recipy is magic! For 3.50 you get a massive toasted wrap, with a variety of yummy fillings, also all made by him. Plus, he is lovely to chat to. My favorite lunch spot on the street, by far!
