Went for a breakfast and to be honest found £11.50 rather expensive for a full breakfast. We opted for the breakfast rolls at just under £4 each, they were decent enough. Tea was very good and staff friendly. Not sure we'll be back due to...More

The food was really good, we had a starter called a wee taste of Scotland , haggis tatties needs with oatcakes , and the main was great. The only thing that irritated me was when entering no one seemed to notice you were there ,...More

This is our second visit, the food was good, but what let this little restaurant down was the lighting, toilets and overall condition. Service was slow .

I was staying across the road from this place so popped in for some lunch while on a business trip. Had soup and sandwich which was delicious. Service was great as well!

We were in the neighborhood looking for a good breakfast stop and we lucked out. The food and coffee was good. I judge a breakfast place by their Eggs Benedict - and they make a good Eggs Benedict.

While wandering in Rose Street on Saturday evening we spotted this restaurant and I'm glad we did. We hadn't booked but fortunately the lady found us a table. It was clear why booking would be recommended. A great atmosphere with music at the right volume....More

Very welcoming staff, great surroundings and right in the middle of town. We thoroughly enjoyed a very well prepared breakfast with an amazing coffee. We would certainly return when next in town.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric

The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service, with a background of vintage decor, the clinking of antique crockery and chilled out tunes. A supremely fresh high quality of rotating specials and classic main meals, there is also the generous grill menu for those who need a more hearty feed. The head chef has a flare for finding fish and meat from the local suppliers which is evident in the tasting. Of a lunch time a quick bite can be found in the soup and sandwich menu for £6.50, And the restaurant is child friendly. The bar offers the biggest selection of whiskies in the New Town, an extensive wine & spirits list and a range of Scottish bottled and draught beers. It certainly is nice to see a quality central site independent of any of the chains which are so prevalent these days. Open for a hearty breakfast from 8am Monday to Friday and 10am-12noon during weekends.
