A friendly local Leith Walk cafe serving soups, sandwiches, salads and the occasional surprise.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Although Leith Walk’s increasingly well-known for a variety of exotic cafés, bars and restaurants, it's a wee bit short on good old-fashioned sandwich shops. That’s what the recently opened 305 Coffee/Kitchen brings to the party (though with less of the old-fashioned). The menu is a simple selection of sandwiches, soups, filled breakfast rolls, bagels and toasties but, like the small café space and takeaway waiting area, it's all bright and contemporary. Alongside a coronation chicken or cheese and ham salad sandwich, a slice of daily changing quiche or a bowl of nachos, diners can be a bit more adventurous with a plate of pulled jackfruit (which works surprisingly well as a macaroni cheese topping), a Turkish falafel flatbread or 305’s own cured salt beef.
