One of Edinburgh's most unique café concepts, Grow Urban is a charming, tiny café housed in a lush plant shop.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Open since April 2019, Grow Urban might already be Edinburgh’s most charming and unique coffee spot. Half plant shop, half café, it marries lush, oxygen-rich surroundings with a small but well-considered drink and bake selection for a peaceful morning or afternoon coffee break. Almost everything on the menu is locally sourced: the coffee is hand-ground in Stockbridge and perfectly smooth, the hot chocolate is just the right side of sweet and creamy, and a salted caramel brownie is as outrageously decadent and melt-in-the-mouth as it sounds. With only twelve seats, Grow Urban is a cosy nook perfect for a quick date with friends, or – better still – a caffeine top-up before delving into its gorgeous and abundant plant collection.
