This is a great cafe just off the centre of Edinburgh. The food is great and the milkshake delicious!

We visited for lunch today, it was the first time we had been in a while. We had a great lunch - delicious soups & crepes. It was good to try a new flavour of soup and all of their soups are vegan. Prices are so reasonable, food is so good and the service is always friendly. Highly recommend you... More

Stopped by for a quick breakfast before heading into Edinburgh and it was a real treat! All the staff were incredibly friendly and the veggie breakfast was really good! We spotted a malteser cake in the display and once finished exploring, we stopped by on our way back to our accomidation and bought a slice - let me tell you... More

Charming owner and friendly staff. Coffee is the best in Edinburgh, could sometimes be hotter but the taste is unbeatable. Eggs Benedict is great, my boyfriend loves the malteaser cake and the Croque Madame looks amazing.

customer service is great, the location is very central and the food is ok, not the best I've ever had but it's good. We found the cafe extremely hot to the point of unbearable, we will probably be back but on a colder day!

Charmingly unpretentious, despite the beautiful decor, 'Word of Mouth' is clearly run by people who care passionately about what they do. Food is exceptionally tasty and excellent value for money. The staff are very friendly and warm and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend this place.

Cozy place with small menu but good food. All in all a good bite on the way into center. Crepes and coffee are great.

Nice late breakfast after late night at festival. Food was excellent but had to tell them twice not to give me beans!!! Great food served quickly by friendly staff but café is a little cramped. Would benefit from maybe one less table to give more elbow room. Restaurant seemed to be very popular as we could not get a table... More

This was close to our hotel whilst visiting the fringe and wow best bacon and egg sarnie in Scotland (maybe). The staff were very friendly and it was a nice little cafe. The only downside is the size and on our last day it was too busy and decided to go elsewhere. On the plus side it always seemed busy... More
