Coffee Saints – take a breather

Coffee Saints - refreshing alternative


Have you been yet? Take a breather and step into Coffee Saints alongside the St James Quarter or in the historic Grassmarket.
Edinburgh’s newest, freshest and award-winning Social Enterprise Café has just celebrated its first birthday!

Looking for delicious Fairtrade Coffees, Cakes or Lunch? No need to book, you can walk right in, have a wee breather and a bite to eat, supporting The Grassmarket Community Project every sip of the way.

Named in the top 100 Social Enterprises in the UK for 2022, Coffee Saints sells a wide range of coffees made by trained Baristas, a great selection of cold drinks, milkshakes and Frappes, meals and light bites, and cakes and pastries to die for. We are also currently shortlisted for two Social Enterprise Scotland Awards!

Located alongside the St James Quarter, Little King Street, we also have a retail space selling gorgeous candles, beautiful handmade Greyfriars Tartan products, and small wooden gifts and homeware. Spacious outdoor seating available too.

You can also pop into Coffee Saints at The Grassmarket Centre too!

Coffee Saints – a Grassmarket Community Project

All of the profit made from your purchases goes back into the charity to help continue its amazing work. It really is coffee with a conscience!

Every Tuesday evening at The Grassmarket Centre, we open our doors at 5pm to provide a 3 course meal to those who are homeless, in need of food or company and support.

You can help us to keep this service going by purchasing one of our Pay It Forward vouchers on your next visit to either café.
