This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
An Edinburgh cultural institution, this independent cinema gem incorporates a popular cafe-bar, which enjoys the pleasant ebb and flow of cineastes, or those just out for a quick bite with friends or colleagues. Fast-moving and often busy, this is good-value grub presented in over-sized portions. An array of veggie staples includes hummus, vegetable lasagne and falafels. Meat-eaters are not left out, with choices like chilli con carne and a chicken dish of the day. A range of daily specials could include juicy cherry tomato and rocket pasta with crunchy garlic bread, and there are curries and nachos for all. Children are catered for too, with mini versions of dishes from the main menu. Choose from a wide selection of drinks – including more than 15 wines served by the glass, plus a host of draught beers and real ales, organic juices and hot drinks – and enjoy a spot of people-watching.
