3 Kiwi-Approved Edinburgh Coffee Shops


Edinburgh may not jump to mind as a capital of coffee culture, but this small big city sure can serve up enough caffeine to keep you buzzing during your visit. Here’s a quick tour around three of the best coffee houses I found on my recent long weekend in the city.

Edinburgh Press Club | Royal Mile

Just off the Royal Mile on your way to Edinburgh’s main station is this big talking coffee club. If you like it strong, I suggest ordering a double macchiato which turned out to be what I would consider a good strong flat white.

Brew Lab | Old Town

Located near the university campus, this specialty coffee bar is a favourite with Edinburgh’s student population and has a nice upbeat vibe. This one’s great for curling up in a big arm chair or catching up with friends.

Wellington Coffee | New Town

An adorable wee coffee house sitting on the corner just below street level. Reliable and conveniently located for a break between shopping.
