A neIghbourhood cafe, workshop and supperclub space, tucked behind Edinburgh's leafy meadows.


Founded by cookbook author Jess Elliott Dennison, our weekly-changing menu follows the seasons and Scotland’s best produce.

Breakfast starts at 8am with freshly-ground Obadiah Collective coffee, Pekoetea loose-leaf tea, roasted fruit jams and citrussy curds on sourdough toast, sage-fried and dill-scrambled eggs, bay-roasted cherries, strained yoghurt and toasted nuts. 

Lunch begins at 12noon and features hearty grain salads, fresh pasta with homemade ricotta, warm-buttered Arbroath smokies, wine-braised beans with garlic aioli, plus plenty of pickles and ferments to share with sourdough and butter. Drinks include our preserved-fruit cordials and shrubs.

We bake seasonally-led cakes and pastries throughout the day; roasted berry galettes, almond and olive oil fruit cakes, sea salt and chocolate rye cookies, amaretti biscuits and fresh cream chocolate ganache. Available for sit in or take away.



"In Salad Feasts, Jessica Elliott Dennison guides you through the art of assembling the perfect meal with over 60 foolproof recipes. From a quick, 10-minute Radicchio, Stilton and Pear salad, to sweetly-charred Anchovy Peppers with Smoky Tomato Beans, each recipe includes substitute ingredient options designed to simplify your salad-making, and all of them will be ready to eat in under 45 minutes."
