As you may know I like coffee, like A LOT. So it goes to say that I go and seek out good coffee in and around Edinburgh.
Here are my top 5 and they are in no particular order as the all have quirks that make me smile:
Fortitude Coffee, 3C York Place, Edinburgh
It’s certainly the Flat Whites that keep me coming back to this place along with their yummy cakes.
Project Coffee, 196 Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh
The scones win every time – they are big, oh so light and come with cream & jam. The flat white is also a mastermind. They have a little sister, Blackwood Coffee is just a 10-minute walk in Morningside. Both haven’t got any social network pages as of yet.
Filament Coffee, 38 Clerk Street, Edinburgh
Since moving from their original location on Victoria Street, I haven’t been to visit yet. But it is long overdue a trip to the new location. I can remember the Flat White was sensational and the interior was chilled.
Steampunk Coffee, 49A Kirk Ports, North Berwick, East Lothian
This is worth a trip in itself – it’s right out-of-town and down the east coast. If I’m In North Berwick this place does not go amiss. Quite frankly the coffees are outta this world and the cakes are delish!
Castello Coffee, Castle Street, Edinburgh
It’s small, but that doesn’t stop this place from being one of my favourites. I have to make a mental note to go to the toilet elsewhere before I have a coffee (they have no toilets) but please don’t let that put you off. It’s really laid back with good amounts of Flat White and yummy Carrot Cake to be had!
