A city beloved for its dark, mysterious streets and its fantastical beauty, Edinburgh is one of the UK’s most-visited destinations. But alongside its rich history and striking architecture, Edinburgh is also known for its cozy coffee house culture, where dark winter days can be spent within the well-decorated walls of the city’s cafés. Read on to discover our 4 favorite coffee houses in the Scottish capital.
This unique coffee house is located just a stone’s throw from the historic university campus, making it a popular student hangout. Black Medicine Coffee Co is a vision in rustic wood furnishings and cosy corners, which make this café the perfect spot for curling up with a book.
Famous city-wide for its artisan coffee selection, Brew Lab’s interior is inspired by the workings of a laboratory, but without the clinical feel. Offering also a range of teas and cold drinks, as well as baked goods, students will often use Brew Lab’s communal benches as a study space.
With two locations within the city centre, Lovecrumbs is a café and lifestyle store centred around beautiful décor and creamy coffee. Its West Port café offers a cushioned two-person window seat which makes the perfect location for a catch-up between friends.
Run by a wonderful local family, Mimi’s is one of Edinburgh’s most famous bakeries. Its four cafés are celebrated for their unbeatable selection of freshly-baked cakes and goodies, with each café offering full breakfast and lunch menus, too. Mimi’s have won Scottish Baker of the Year multiple times, and for good reason!
