Hideout Cafe

The Hideout is a special little place on Queen Charlotte Street. I know its owner; Gabi use to be regular on our Fitmamas Class! I love going back to Hideout for excellent tasting coffee and enormous toast.

Relish Deli

A fantastic little cafe on Commercial Street. The food is simply delicious! The selection is excellent, the staff are incredibly helpful, and the owner runs ultramarathons! 


Well-hidden at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, Milk is easily accessible by a cycling route. I love walking there, enjoying green and quiet as it is located only 15 min from the studio.
They have outdoor tables and a great selection of fantastic food. Highly recommended.

Rock Salt

The Best cafe on Constitution Street! The owners are super friendly, food is delicious, and the halloumi burgers are exceptional! A perfect place after a race or big training day.


Aurora is a small but cosy restaurant/cafe in the heart of Leith. Coffee is great but Aurora is best known for their themed tasting menu served with matching drinks.

Cafe Praline

Just accros the street from the studio, Cafe Praline is great for a quick coffee and cake lunch break! 


Ostara is a neighbourhood cafe – bistro near the popular Shore area in Leith, a 10 minute stroll from the Royal Yacht Britannia. We believe the best food is simple, made with great ingredients and enjoyed with friends. Our aim is to celebrate the best of Scotland’s food and drink in a comfortable, welcoming environment.
