The Counter

On a canal boat, docked on Edinburgh Quay app, The Counter must be the most original cafe in Edinburgh. It serves great coffee and delicious home baked pastries. It’s a pity the outside seating is only usable on good weather…

Brochan

A small cafe in the heart of Marchmont with amazing porridges, excellent avocato toasts and good coffee. The wifi is functional and there is some power plugs around. The ambient music is excellent and the staff is very friendly. Will be coming back for sure!

Black Ivy
