Five Degrees cafe
With every build you hit some obstacles, and sadly we've uncovered a wall that needs a bit of TLC before we can continue our transformation. 💋 I'm in Geneva, learning all about the Swiss superfood & an addition to our breakfast menu "Bircher Muesli". Except ours is extra special with a family secret recipe. #fivedegreescafe #Edinburgh #comingsoon #Switzerland #Geneva #croissant #bircher #muesli
Situated just off Bruntsfield Links, this stylish new cafe offers to kickstart your day with its fine coffee selection and Swiss Birchermuesli breakfast. If you’re feeling a tad more adventurous then have a try of their bubble tea.

The gang at Six Degrees North have brought their Belgian style swallies to Edinburgh, and we ain’t complaining. Their array of brews are made using traditional Belgian methods, in a location six degrees north of Brussels in North East Scotland.
