Edinburgh’s premier soup café serves up comforting, wholesome soups for the lunchtime crowds, while also running social initiatives to help Edinburgh's homeless community.

Serving the best soup in Scotland; we make everything we sell by hand, to our own recipes, fresh every day. You’ll find 6 flavour-packed soups, fresh salads, chillies and vegan bakes on our daily-changing menu. We cheerfully feed everyone - meat-eaters, vegans, free-from - we always have full allergen info available for you.

Gluten-free and vegan cakes, superb Artisan Roast coffee and Chocolate Tree hot chocolate always available. We donate soup to Edinburgh’s Care Van, which feeds rough sleepers every night of the year. You can help us do this by adding £2 to your bill.
