5 reviews of Embo Delicatessen in English
I cannot believe I hadn't reviewed this place before simply because it rocks!! They have the best wraps and the nicest combination salads and would definetly be in my top 5 sandwich places in Edinburgh.. Possibly even top 3!
Amazing salads that are a good price and really good sized. The only downside is the seating they have is just high stools and tables - Not really the most comfortable or relaxing and theres not much of it - and the food sometimes takes a little bit to come out cause its always quite busy in here. definetly worth the wait though. I LOVE the food in here it is just one step up from the usual fare you get in deli sandwich type shops and its really fresh and different. If your in the area stop by and try it you will not be dissapointed.
Embo is a lovely little cafe/deli a short stroll from the city centre (on Leith Walk). As soon as you enter you are greeted by an incredibly friendly man who is extremely cheerful and clearly loves what he does, which to my mind is exactly what you want from a cafe and makes a nice change from the grunts you get in chain cafes around the land.
The food is pretty good too - I only went for breakfast but we were pleased with our breakfast wraps and toast - all good quality stuff. Plus there was a huge chocolate cake on the counter, which very nearly caused us to go back later in the day. Maybe next time….
The food is amazing! Lovely middle eastern stuff! I go in regularly but never have the same fillings in my wrap. And it always tastes great. The atmosphere is very friendly. Lots of locals coming in for coffee in the morning. The staff seem to know everyone and treat new costumers as if they belonged there as well. No pretense!!!
I love love love this little sandwich shop/deli. The owner regularly works there and is very friendly and always takes a minute to chat while he serves you. The ingredients are all fresh and everything is homemade. The food is lovely, the wraps are good and the salads are far more imaginative than most. And they now appear to be open on Sundays too :)
A bit down Leith Walk from the Omni Centre hides a darling little café that I’ve only recently become acquainted with. Embo offers very, very fresh and lighter foods, including sandwiches, generous salads, and delicious wraps with not-so-usual ingredients. I am a big fan of their grilled wraps (especially the Mexi-wrap) and their ever-changing homemade soups (no, really homemade, in the store—not homemade by a distributor, as many ‘homemade’ soups actually are). They also offer handmade sweets, including a dreamy carrot cake (yes, with little chunky bits and, gasp!, really-real cream cheese icing! Ah, bliss!!)
The only negative comment I have is that it’s durn near impossible to get served quickly during the weekday lunch rush—I wonder whether at noon someone rings a bell and business suits creep out of the woodwork like so many ants and form a lengthy queue. Hmm…they may be on to something…
