Smart and friendly family-run deli café adding a modern twist to traditional homemade Italian favourites.
Café culture in the Canonmills has seen a lot of change in recent years, but Di Giorgio remains a reliable stalwart for the community there. Alongside a lunch menu which has earned them many regulars, an all-day breakfast menu offers a whole lot more than a fry-up or bacon roll. Breakfasts come in several varieties, including a thoughtful veggie option featuring homemade baked beans with a touch of mustard, and a crispy-coated yet fluffy-centred potato and chickpea cake. Banana and blueberry French toast comes stacked jenga-fashion, with tangibly fresh fruit balancing the richness of the eggy bread. In terms of both food and décor this spot isn’t looking to lead any trends, instead they’re rightfully focusing their energies into looking after their devoted customers and creating a genuinely warm atmosphere.
