Great coffee, superb sandwiches and soups, and cakes and teas from some of Edinburgh’s best producers all find a home at Brew Lab, with a strong wine and beer game thrown in as well.

Bright and breezy, Hula does a great line in fresh fruit juices with exotic and outrageous blends that you never would have considered, as well as great coffee and healthy food.

An inventive sweet and savoury menu, tables made from old pianos, and a literal window seat give Lovecrumbs an anarchic air that turns the act of going for coffee into an adventure.

Black Medicine Coffee
Warm and cosy, with plenty of natural wood on display, Black Medicine is the perfect spot to duck into for a few hours if it starts chucking it down. The coffee is top-notch and their selection of paninis and savoury croissants are delicious. The staff are super friendly too!

Filament’s a brilliant modern coffee bar pretty much halfway between Summerhall and the Pleasance Courtyard. We know the Fringe gets tough; a flat white from these guys will help make it all better.
