Leith's cult coffee roasters have a second branch in the heart of Princes Street - great news for shoppers and commuters.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The Waverley Mall branch of the Leith coffee roastery opened in 2018 and gives an independent alternative to the chain coffee shops down in the train station. Entering via Princes Street, it’s easy to spot the sleek looking coffee shop looking over the shops. You can order one of their own Leith roasted and seasonally curated coffees, a PekoeTea or a chilled bottle of kombucha to go for the train, or sign up for their espresso subscription and get very freshly roasted beans posted straight to your home or office. Soups, fancy cheese toasties and cakes are available to sit in or to go, and there’s a small selection of tote bags, expert coffee gear and magazines to buy from a bright yellow display rack. On good weather days, one of the pillar box red outdoor tables would be a great spot to enjoy an affogato.
