Grand Cafe at The Scotsman

Opening June 2018, The Scotsman Grand Café is home to one of Edinburgh’s most magnificent Old Town venues. Set within the Scotsman’s former advertising hall, the spectacular double height space will seat one hundred and fifty covers across its spectacular ground floor and balcony, filled with light, character and beautiful period features.

Inspired by the 'Grand Cafes' of Europe, the new North Bridge venue promises a welcoming, relaxed drinking and dining experience to suit all tastes and occasions, juxtaposing a menu of modern food and drink with the authentic charm of its interior which dates back to 1905.

A fresh, light all day menu will take guests from early breakfasts, brunches and lunches through to afternoon teas and evening dining options – all created by Dundee-born MasterChef: The Professionals finalist Chris Niven, using ingredients sourced from a hand-picked selection of great Scottish producers. 

While the ‘Grand Cafe’ will bring the buzz of a vibrant modern café bar during the day, it will also stay open until 3am every day, transforming into the perfect late night drinking and dining spot in the city, with live piano music played on the balcony by an in-house pianist taking requests into the small hours.
