Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Tucked away at the back of Tiso’s on Commercial Street, the Summit Café is worth seeking out. It’s a beacon for locals, Tiso shoppers and customers using the upstairs Leith Therapy Clinic. Roomy and rustic, there’s decent coffee (with dairy-free options) available for sitting-in or grabbing and going. Breakfast is served right up until midday and ranges from a healthy bowl of porridge to a full Scottish, ideal for keeping you going if you’re heading up a hill after stocking up on crampons. As well as pre-made sandwiches and at least one hot special, lunch centres around ‘choose your own’ sandwiches, baguettes, panini and baked potatoes: chose from a range of meat and veggie fillings, add salad and sauce and you’re good to go.
