I took my daughter in a Saturday morning to have a English style breakfast out. And we were not disappointed ! The eggs Benedict was superbe and the coffee was so good it made me feel happy. I am not picky about coffee but this ons was noticeably better then my expectation. I enjoyed every sip!!

We always visit this cafe when in Edinburgh and it never disappoints. Lunches and coffee and cake always fantastic. The menu is large and very varied. The bowls of soup are big and tasty. Selection of cakes mouthwatering!! Service is of a high standard, ever efficient and friendly. Highly recommended.

Amazing breakfast! I had the baby rocket and it was delicious, although I couldn't quite finish it because it was so big. No idea how my son managed to polish off the full rocket - as good as baby rocket but with even more food on the plate!

I have intended to write a review of this really nice little establishment for some time. It may not appear to be the most luxuriously apponted eatery but appearance can be deceptive. The staff are really courteous and the well priced menu should satisfy the hungriest customer. The Baby Rocket breakfast is a must!

Busy place on a wet Sunday, helpful staff if a wee bit laid back in service...ordered our coffee and food all at once but received our coffee so quickly had it drunk by the time our food arrived or it would have been cold. As for the food, yummy nachos with nice homemade salsa and tender chicken and all gluten... More

I swear my spoon could have stood up in my cheese, celeriac and potato soup by itself. It was served with some lovely fresh bread. Only negative comment is that the decaf coffee was very, very strong.

I could eat here every day, more than once. Delicious soups, sandwiches and specials and then there are their cakes - amazing!

Haven't been in Morningside for ages, plenty places to eat but where, then we saw this place and the menu, we were sold. The biggest issue was what to eat, such a choice and looking around at people already eating, it all looked enticing. However we plunged for the club sandwich, one carnivorous and one veggie. Both extremely enjoyable, indeed... More
