Well mope no longer – Edinburgh has six brand new bars, restaurants and cafes for you to get stuck into as the nights get darker and colder this autumn.


Michelin star chef Martin Wishart is putting his weight behind the latest venture from the Social Bite team, cooking up monthly French-Scottish specials for the fantastic social enterprise. New restaurant, Home, will provide training programmes for homeless members of the Social Bite academy when it opens in mid-September.

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.

Cup Tea Lounge

This centrally situated cafe is a great spot for brunch, with its choice of breakfast sliders or for afternoon tea, due to it’s vast array of cupcakes. Tiramisu and tablet are just a couple of the cupcakes on offer. That’s right – a tablet cupcake.
