The Undercroft – a community café with a warm welcome

Opening hours Monday to Friday, 10:30 – 2:00 

Come and try our friendly Undercroft Café in the heart of Edinburgh for fresh, home-made food at reasonable prices.

You will still find a selection of scones, baked each morning, two choices of soup, a hot dish of the day, and a mouth-watering variety of cakes, traybakes and shortbread. There will always be some gluten free options.

Of course we have all those teas and specialty coffees that you love, as well as fruit juices and soft drinks.

If you are looking for a hearty lunch, try one of our delicious vegetarian soups, served with crusty bread.
We use Fairtrade and locally grown ingredients where possible.
