    Food was very good however we were served poor coffee and were also given cream to go with the coffee that had clearly gone off. This was changed but this really shouldn't have happened.

    The service and surroundings were lovely. Had a good selection of wines by the glass. We chose a super wine. The food took a long time to arrive - an hour for a lunch main course. When it arrived, the chicken dish was enjoyable but the fish was overcooked and disappointing.

    Steak sandwiches had cold steak. Battered haddock over-battered and not much fish inside. Chips were poor. Food took a long time being served.

    Great service friendly staff and the food was outstanding. The price was what you would expect to pay in Edinburgh city centre.

    We collected friends from Waverley train station and managed to get a car park nearby. So the café was a perfect introduction to Edinburgh. The service and food was high standards and did not disappoint.
