Respond to Review of CLOSED: ORB Cafe
Review: We loved the friendliness and enthusiasm of the 2 women that run this newly opened cafe. It's nicely-lit inside and when busy should be a great place to relax and dine in a laid back atmosphere. It's been set-up on a budget but they've made the most of the surroundings and most importantly of all - the food hits the mark. The taster menu of the 3 dishes on offer was lovely and well worth a tenner for the beautifully presented food and flavours, as were the fruit juices (thick like a smoothie) and the crumble dessert with booja-booja ginger and coconut vegan ice-cream. They plan to make their own vegan ice-cream in the future. It's in a central location above Chop Chop (through a door to the side), near to Haymarket Station. It offers breakfast through to dinner (dinner Fri/Sat) at present but check the hours on their web-site in case this changes, and runs regular evenings such as talks or films. I'd really like to try their Burns' Night but sadly won't be able to investigate what raw foodies would have to rival veggie haggis, neeps and tatties! Although we are not raw diet followers, it's really nice to see something like this arrive in Edinburgh and deserves to be a success for daring to be different in this city! We'll certainly pay more visits in future.
