Right next to Bruntsfield Links, the friendly, laid-back Treehouse Café is well located for a fresh, filling sit-in lunch, or a picnic to take out onto the grass. While the café came under new ownership in spring 2014, just as this guide was going to press, it carries a reputation as a place that proudly serves its community: students, NHS workers and Filmhouse/Cameo members get a 10 per cent discount, and kids are positively welcomed. Expect generous portions of no-nonsense, fresh and delicious food at surprisingly reasonable prices. Things start early with creamy scrambled eggs and smoked salmon or freshly made American pancakes for breakfast, and there’s daily changing soup, stack-em-high club sandwiches and stuffed-full toasties for lunch. Come in as a Treehouse newbie and you’ll leave feeling like one of the regulars.
