Modern little café serving light lunches and home baking, with great coffee and hot chocolate.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

This modern little café is handily positioned opposite the Lyceum Theatre, and just round the corner from the Usher Hall and Traverse, so it's well worth remembering pre or post-show for a discerningly brewed cup of coffee. Seating is scarce though and those lucky enough to bag the chaise longue may be tempted to linger. Lunch is a simple line-up of toasts with avocado and goat’s cheese or brie with apple and pear compote. A cranberry and cashew salad pot is packed with fresh greens, red cabbage and apple, pleasingly served with homemade pesto on top and sourdough on the side. Attention to detail shines through most of the drink’s menu. A chai latte is made with a blend of house spices, freshly ground to order and sweetened with maple syrup, while a hot chocolate bowl indulgently arrives with whipped coconut cream and a croissant for dipping.
