Welcome to Coffee Saints

A friendly welcome to Coffee Saints

Take a breather from the busy streets of Edinburgh and discover the delights of COFFEE SAINTS cafés in the heart of the city’s historic Grassmarket and alongside the St James Quarter, where there’s a cheery sunny garden space to sit too.

Coffee Saints is Edinburgh’s newest, freshest Social Enterprise. All profits made are returned to The Grassmarket Community Project, supporting the most vulnerable people in Edinburgh. Eating here doesn’t just fill you up, it makes you feel great too.

Choose from a wide range of coffees made by trained Baristas and a refreshing selection of cold drinks, milkshakes, fruities and smoothies. Our tempting menu of delicious meals and light bites, tasty cakes and pastries is hard to resist too!

A real favourite for locals and visitors to the city, both Coffee Saints cafés are bright spacious and colourful spaces, where everyone is welcome. As you can see, we are most definitely 100% dog friendly too!

Enjoy a browse around our retail space when you visit, there’s a wonderful range of gorgeous candles, beautiful handmade Greyfriars Tartan products, and small wooden gifts and homeware to choose from.
