This used to be a lovely cafe well worth visiting. In the past few months they started to close earlier and their current closing time is at 3.30pm during the week and shut during the weekend. When are you supposed to take your kids there?...More

Cakes to die for, wonderful sandwiches made to order while you wait (they know what a vegan is!), friendly staff. Not cheap, but a great treat, eat in or take away to eat by the Water of Leith on a sunny day.

Only a small patisserie but all the cakes and ice creams/ sorbets are home-made and delicious. The staff are very family friendly.
