Have been here for coffee and lunch several times and have yet to find fault. It seems to get very busy especially at weekends and rightly so as everything about Maxis is quality. Prices seem fair for the location and quality of what is on offer and the ambience is pleasant. On one of my three visits it was buzzing... More

We didn't stay to have lunch as 20 minutes was too long for soup and oatcakes!! No smiles or eye contact from the waiting staff meant we weren't keen to stay. Went to another cafe nearby which was fantastic.

Came last Sunday at noon, busy got a table just but clearly 3 servers was not enough, really two plus a barrista. Plates uncleared for ages, tables not wiped down properly. Service when it came was ok Had a coffee and eggs Florentine, both good, daughter loved her smoothie and French toast. Needs to up their game in fashionable Stockbridge.

Went here for a late breakfast lunch, and have been before, about 6 months ago. Full scottish was very tasty, good sized portion, but the service was quite poor. They appear to be a bit chaotic, the staff don't appear to know what their priorities. We sat down at a table which still had used dishes on it, as did... More

We popped in here on Saturday and were lucky enough to get a table, its always busy and you cant book or really wait so it can be a bit hit and miss. You order at the service desk which was fine with us both going for the poached eggs and local bowers sausages. The food came in very good... More

Maxi's is a great place for brunch/ lunch. They offer a range of breakfast dishes and the soups are amazing. The cafe has a great atmosphere and is always packed. Highly recommend!

Visited this place in a group of 4 after walking around Stockbridge all morning so we were ravenous. Two of us went up to order and then sat down. The waiter said he'd hold our orders till our other two friends had ordered so our food would all come together. However, the first two orders came out and then our... More

Visited with a couple of friends for a light lunch today. Drinks served immediately but after nearly 30 minutes enquired when the food might arrive. Told there was a backlog. Another 10 minutes went by before the food finally arrived, without apology I might add. Come on, clearly they'd just forgotten! A bowl of soup, a bacon roll and a... More

I knew Maxi's really well - before it changed hands and am pleased to report I think I like it even better now. certainly the decor is funkier.

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
