After walking along the Water of Leith walkway, a quick bite was required. Cafe Braw was just the ticket - welcoming and delicious food on offer. A cheese scone to accompany a real treat of soup - chilli beef with the offer of natural yoghurt if one felt the need to cool the spice down - no need for the latter on this occasion and oh boy - oodles of flavour. Broccoli and blue cheese quiche also hit the mark and we headed home with just a sample of the wide selection of sweet temptations to enjoy later on. A very happy encounter!

This cafe is clearly well known and supported by local residents. Compostable cups, plates and cutlery is also very commendable as previously commented upon by other reviewers.

Such Food.

It was a dreich, miserable day the first time m'Esteemed Colleague and I first stumbled upon Cafe Braw. We'd just been to a flat viewing in Dean Village which we'd completely mistimed (we still saw the flat thankfully and ended up going for it!) but our bellies were aching and we needed some sustenance were we to even consider continuing our voyage. Thankfully this little eaterie was there to save our spirits! We sat down and almost immediately the super-friendly staff engaged us in a properly heartwarming conversation, soothing our brows after a fretful day. The food was all delicious too, and I'm very happy to have Braw on my doorstep.

I've nipped in a few times now, what with the cafe being mere yards from my front door, and every visit has been a delight! It's only ten minutes walk from Haymarket Station, but this wee stunner can be a bit tricky to find. The serene surroundings make it more than worth the trip, it feels a million miles from the madness and mayhem of the main areas of Edinburgh. Head North from the station, along Palmerston Place, then take a right at the Belford Hostel (It's in a big pointy building at the end of Palmerston, you can't miss it!) then get comfy and enjoy!


PS The Thai Chicken Soup is utterly fantastic, definitely try if it's SotD!

A delightful little gem of a deli hidden just above Dean Village (if you're in the village I highly recommend checking it out).

The staff are really excellent, honestly some of the most friendly people I have ever been served by, it seemed that they had some friends over at a large table and were prompted to join them. We of course accepted and boy am I glad we did. Situations like this rarely ever happen and it was delight to converse with some total strangers for a short snack.

The food is marvellous and extremely cheap! I had salt beef and potatoes dauphinoise and it was delectable, for only £3.50 it was a complete steal!

Highly recommend this place.

Me and my husband visited yesterday for the first time. Plenty of choice on the menu which changes everyday. I had the Tomato and Basil Soup and my husband had the potato stovies and we shared a sausage and bacon 'doubler'. The owner had a great bubbly personality and was very knowledgeable about her products and the area she is located in. Dean Village is a short walk from her location. All products are freshly made every day!!

Came across this wee cafe on a walk in a very, very heavy rain shower. Immediately made welcome by the lovely owner who knew we needed something warm! Hot chicken, bacon and leek pie went down went down a treat. As did some housemade tiffin for sweet. Very reasonably priced, plenty of options for veggies and GF dietary requirements and the cutlery and containers are biodegradable too!

Great café with a really friendly owner. Only does filter coffee buts it’s really good filter coffee! Scones are excellent and the place is handy if you are walking along the detour at the Water of Leith or if you are in Dean Village.

Everything is freshly made and has a good variety for vegans, vegetarians and gluten free. Also Meg, the owner, is one the loveliest people I've ever met. Plus, everything is biodegradable and it's been that way since 2012! Would 100% recommend

A small, open shop in a terrific location, fronted by a talkative and welcoming owner. The food looked as good as it tasted (i.e. no pretention or flash, but absolutely fabulous).The hot drinks were equally good, and to top it off the prices could not have been more reasonable. Also good to know that all disposable utensils are recyecled /composted. Will definitely return for another "mighty fine cup of tea" asap

Barry wee place. Good service. Good coffee. And... There aren't many places left that you can simply ask for a 'coffee' without having to give it a modern trendy name. Top marks!

Amazing little place, a lot of love goes into making the food! I love the ethos and atmosphere when you walk in, lovely people. I would highly highly recommend the stromboli. I promise it'll be one of the most amazing, best value things you come across in a while!

I've lost my way to office as a courtesy of Google maps. Accidentally landed at this place ...and found an amazingly "friendly staff, tasty food at fair price". Tried the Scottish vegetarian Haggis, it was so delicious. I'd highly recommend this place!
