My weekend stroll had taken me through Roseburn, the other day, and I was interested to note a full house at the Roseburn Cafe. A busy crowd was availing itself of greasy spoon treats. When I was in need of a hearty breakfast in the neighbourhood, I headed along there.

The place is a compact caff set-up. It’s at the humble end of the market, but uses the space quite effectively to maximise seating.

From their wide selection of different breakfast choices I chose “set 2” which comprised bacon, egg, sausage, beans and black pudding with toast. I added a cup of builders tea.

While the highly efficient counter men cooked things to order, there was a steady stream of customers with a fair balance between sit-in and takeaway customers, including one curious soul who ordered macaroni cheese at 8am.

My breakfast arrived looking quite neat. Items proved nicely cooked and pretty tasty. The bacon was particularly good and the thinly sliced black pudding packed with flavour. I was pleased with it.

So overall, the Roseburn Cafe did a good job in delivering a hearty breakfast to set me up for the day. When you’re in need of something similar, you’ll find a warm welcome and tasty grub at this enjoyable little place.
