Coffee & tea

"Leaf & Bean Deli Café" is a recent arrival to the thriving Edinburgh café scene, w/ nice breakfast & brunch. I especially recommend their Empire Biscuits!

Leaf & Bean Deli Café is a recent addition to the thriving Edinburgh café scene. Just beside the Meadows park, this is a spacious and relaxed refuge to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

As the name suggests, this is a great place to come for tasty coffee and a wide range of teas which all come served with a delicious piece of Scottish fudge. They also offer a variety of tasty pastries and baked goods (I especially recommend their Empire Biscuits) and have breakfast, brunch and lunch menus too.

With wi-fi available and lots of space, this is a popular place to come to study, work or settle down with a good book. Of course it’s also a great spot to catch up with friends and while away a few hours. The staff are always friendly and happy to chat, making this a warm and welcoming place to visit.

They also sell a small selection of products including their own signature coffee blend. There is another branch on Comiston Road.
