A tranquil rest stop on the busy Royal Mile

The Storytelling Café

The Café is at the heart of the Storytelling Centre, welcoming tourists and locals alike, offering great service and delicious food throughout the day and drinks into the evening.

Saltire Hospitality Ltd is a local, family owned catering company, guaranteeing the supply of exceptional fresh, local and seasonal Scottish produce.

Whether you have a coffee at the window to watch the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile, take away fresh produce and a tasty coffee, or meet with friends and family to relax, we look forward to seeing you at the Café.

We’re family-friendly with lots of space for buggies.

Children can enjoy our Storywall and activity box whilst you relax.
