Are you tired of avocado toast, matcha lattes and brioche French toast? Do you long for a proper feed, full of grease, fat, salt and meat? Then Snax Café is the place for you. This proper Scottish ‘caff’, a favourite of locals, commuters and construction workers, brings it back to basics with its hearty unpretentious dishes.  

Snax draws an eclectic crowd. Here you’ll find people from every walk of life, from well-suited businessmen to groggy hungover students to middle-aged men in paint-splattered overalls. Like its dishes, the café itself is classic and down-to-earth, with wooden tables and chairs, a counter storing ingredients and walls papered with posters advertising local events and performers. You’ll never see this place empty as its popularity means it’s constantly busy and bustling, while always maintaining a characteristic salt-of-the-earth friendly atmosphere.  

Proper hole-in-the-wall cafes are becoming more and more of a rarity in the competitive Edinburgh brunch scene. Luckily Snax Café is more than willing to satisfy all of your salty, meaty cravings. An unmissable option is the all-day breakfast, advertised as ‘the all-day breakfast’, ‘the bigger breakfast’ and ‘the biggest breakfast’. This hangover dream food, which also comes as veggie option, features all the classics; sausages, bacon, fried egg, black pudding, beans and a buttered roll. Upgrade to one of the bigger options if you have a hankering for tattie scones, hash browns, haggis or fried tomato. Breakfast options aren’t limited to fry-ups; there’s a range of breakfast rolls, baguettes and toasted wraps.  

Lunch sticks to the cheap, quick and tasty theme. Think burgers and chips, baked potatoes filled with chicken curry, soup of the day, more chip options than you can imagine, and a variety of hot paninis, toasted wraps and gourmet toasties. There’s also a salad menu for anyone trying to stay healthy (good luck).
