Rankins Cafe (North Queensferry)

Small (7 tables I think) with vintage style decor. One end of the cafe has formal tables/chairs the other side has more comfortable sofa type seating. Cracking full wall size picture of the old North Queensferry pier with the paddle-steamer tied up.
Varied menu and impressed with the sandwich/baguette fillings which were quite creative rather than the usual run of the mill stuff. I had the ploughman's platter which was delicious and my wife had the Goats cheese,chilli jam and crispy salad on a brown sandwich which also came with a generous side salad and dressing and a good handful of nachos (probably would have been better served with crisps if I was being overly critical !).
The food and service from the staff/(owners?) was excellent and nothing seemed too much of a problem. From our table we could also look up to the Rail Bridge and watch the passing trains. Overall experience great, and I have no problem thoroughly recommending it. tourists would certainly find it quaint and well worth popping down there should you find yourselves in the area.
