A coffee shop a few doors down from the King’s Theatre, serving traditional, homemade Punjabi and Nepali recipes alongside breakfasts, wraps, soups and cakes, with of options for dietary requirements.
Magma Café is run by Susang Bomzan who used to work in Leith Walk’s Punjabi Junction, a community cafe devoted to improving the lives of minority ethnic women in Edinburgh. She’s now branched out with her own venture – a small, down to earth coffee shop which opened in July 2017, just a few doors down from the King’s Theatre in busy Tollcross. She’s brought her traditional homemade Punjabi and Nepali recipes with her, adding curries, momo dumplings and stir fries to a menu of French toast breakfasts, green lentil wraps and hearty soups, with plenty vegetarian and vegan options. There is an impressive selection of delicious homemade gluten and lactose-free cakes too.
