Weekend is not complete without a visit to my fave local cafe. Fantastic breakfasts!! They also do sandwiches and cakes. Cakes are delish and are all made in house. It's a small cafe so fills up quickly. You have to get in early at the weekend or you have to go elsewhere for breakfast or get a take away!

This has to be one of the best cafés in Edinburgh. Run by some lovely young ladies who work very hard to make sure that you get the best they can provide every time you eat there. I must admit I struggle to see past their full breakfast, but I have also been in later and had the fullest sandwich... More

Been many times. This visit was he first time I didn't have breakfast food. I had a soup and sandwich. It was lovely! Also had an empire biscuit. It was so fresh and tasty. Staff are great and the Haven is good value for money.

Stopped in for breakfast. Everything was freshly cooked and well prepared. Straight forward breakfast menu such as full Scottish, scrambled eggs and salmon/bacon, porridge, breakfast rolls etc. Scones tasted homemade. Coffee was very good. Orange juice tasted freshly squeezed. Though a small cafe it was lively without being noisy. The staff were very friendly and helpful setting a great atmosphere.... More

Nice corner cafe, just by Ocean Terminal almost opposite the Asda on the main road.. Imaginative retro inside, it's full of homemade cakes, meals cooked fresh, does wonderful breakfasts using quality ingredients and friendly people run it ! A great alternative to the "full grease" and Greggs... Couldn't fault it and really enjoyed Recommend

Cozy and quaint cafe, perfect for breakfast or lunch. If you'd like to try a full Scottish breakfast, this is a great place to do it. The baked goods also looked fabulous.

When arriving to the cafe it was very busy which to us suggested it was a good place to go. We happily waited for 5 mins max for a table and the staff were very efficient on cleaning tables and seating customers. Great menu to choose from, we attended for breakfast after visiting Edinburgh overnight. The pancakes were very tasty... More

Came so close to just staying at the premier inn for breakfast, but do glad we ventured out and found this place. Great breakfast, quality ingredients, lovely atmosphere and service. Would love to come back to try cakes sometime!

Visited the cafe on a quiet Tuesday afternoon for a couple of hangover full breakfasts. They were terrible! The beans were the only nice things on the plate. Bacon was fatty, black pudding and haggis were both very dry and the 1 sausage was cheap. I have previously rated The Haven 5 out of 5 but we were left so... More
