Setting up shop in a resurgent Abbeyhill, Art and Vintage was opened by a chef/artist duo looking for a way to pursue their shared passions. Inside, it’s bright but cosy, with formica tables and original artwork on the walls. Food-wise, there’s a breakfast menu, daily specials, soup and sandwiches, all made in-house. Colourful salad plates are piled high with veggies, pickles and slaw, all full of flavour and well-seasoned. The home baking is great, including a stem ginger and orange cake with tangy icing, a great match for coffee from Edinburgh Tea and Coffee in Portobello. Part café, part art gallery and part vintage shop, the latter offers a selection of pieces from late Victorian to mid-century, including glassware, ceramics and kitchenalia. Evening dinners and events with local makers and artists all strengthen a commitment to promoting an independent spirit in this part of Edinburgh.
