Modern and spacious café within Newhaven's Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop serving nutritious breakfasts and lunches for every dietary requirement.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Hidden off the old railway path in a largely residential area of Newhaven, the bright and spacious Milk at the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is a foodie destination off the beaten track. Breakfasts feature a veggie plate with delicious spiced tofu, or smashed avocado on toast which comes crowned with a delightfully oozing poached egg. Lunch is focused around sandwiches, salads and soups, with a focus on vegetarian and vegan options. Delicately fried carrot and halloumi fritters top a plate of crunchy greens, while Asian chicken wrap is packed with umami flavour and the slightest hint of chilli heat from the crunchy kimchi. Finally, the cakes are a feast, particularly a moist and springy raspberry and blackberry sponge that doesn’t skimp on the fresh fruit inside.
