Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Eight years ago, a dark, aromatic café on Broughton Street joined the crème de la crème of Edinburgh’s coffee drinking renaissance. Since then, Gustavo Pardo’s Artisan Roast has seeded two more espresso-sized cafes, in Bruntsfield in 2012, and early in 2015 Stockbridge’s Raeburn Place, mixing with the fragrance of a flower shop. The empire spreads to a tasting ‘lab’ in Canonmills and a roastery in Prestonfield, which together blend and package beans to serve and sell in their cafes, harvested freshly in seasonal batches from plantations around the world – it all has the feel of a finely honed marketing spiel. Artisan Roast’s baristas, and loyal aficionados, will pride themselves on knowing each coffee’s taste, aroma and crema artwork, and success has indeed come to Artisan with many awards. But the befuddled customer can still enjoy a pretty good cup of coffee and a chat amid the earthy, gap-year décor of hessian sacks, even if you don’t take it all as seriously as they do. If you’re hungry, there’s soup and single plate of pastries, and if you don’t like coffee, there’s Eteaket tea, plus hot chocolate spiced with Aztec chilli or rose and black pepper.
