The baked potatoes here are amazing - a tattie and a half! Great service and tasty wholesome food. Ideal for a rapid lunch.

Friendliest staff in Edinburgh! Very popular at lunchtimes with queues out the door. Breakfast rolls are delicious - scrambled egg made fresh.

Amazing baked potatoes and home made soups! A perfect option if you do not have to much time for lunch.

Rapid Rolls is what every sandwich shop should aspire to be. A dazzling array of fillings generously scooped into fresh rolls, or into baked potatoes the size of small rugby balls. Delicious home made soup, daily hot specials such as stovies, corn beef hash or the ubiquitous mac and cheese and all served by a squad of lovely, friendly, tirelessly cheerful ladies who feel like friends. Throw in the fact that the prices come as a genuinely pleasant surprise in such a central, corporate part of town and you'll realise why it is that, despite all the takeaway sandwich competition in the area, Rapid Rolls' queue at lunchtime is always out the door and halfway down the street. They do a mean breakfast roll too.

Came across this place by accident (was staying at the Doubletree Hilton).

I just ordered a bacon roll and large cup of tea for breakfast (£2.70) and debated whether to ask for extra bacon as some cafes like this can be mingy with it. I was glad I didn't as there was loads of bacon and everything i saw being made and served looked great.

Great value for money not far from the back of the castle.
