Eating & Drinking Guide

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

For an excellent cup of coffee in central Edinburgh, this little modern eatery is well worth remembering. A simple but creative menu makes it hard to resist something more on the side, too. While an avocado open sandwich may be par for the course, it's enlivened here with peri peri, tomatoes and well balanced with lime juice, feta and chilli flakes. Alternatively, plump for the equally tempting toast with artichoke, roasted peppers and yoghurt. Though owners Sibel and Nigel are new to the scene, they have been quick to identify some dependable local suppliers with soups from Union of Genius and coffee from Edinburgh roasters Machina. Cakes – particularly the homemade brownies – entice, but for the sweet-toothed, the hazelnut praline on toast, beautifully topped with an array of fruit, honey and seeds, will surely be a highlight. A happy, bright spot for lunch or brunch.
