Don't Tell Mama
- Food served Lunch menu: Mon–Sun 8am–7pm (main lunch menu served 10am–5pm)
A modern Greek coffee bar in the heart of Tollcross, serving Greek pastries and a delicious Mediterranean-inspired lunch menu.
Apparently Edinburgh’s first Greek coffee bar, Don’t Tell Mama is a delightful addition to diverse Home Street. The space is small yet lovely, combining modern furniture and white-washed walls with charming touches like a vine-entangled, soft blue and gold trellis which covers a stretch of tables and sits just beneath the ceiling. The menu is just as appealing: feta cheese bougatsa (which like all their pastries is imported from Greece) is served with a dollop of tangy Greek yoghurt and melts in the mouth, while the open sandwich layers bread baked in-house with whipped Greek yoghurt and soft cheese, generous amounts of sliced avocado and smoked salmon for a delicious Mediterranean take on the quintessential avo-on-toast. When this is followed by an impossibly decadent avocado chocolate cake and the whole thing wrapped round with friendly service with a real personal touch, it’s no surprise that Don’t Tell Mama is fast becoming one of Tollcross’s unmissable spots.
