The Grand Cafe

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.

"The Grand Cafe in Edinburgh exceeded all expectations, earning a solid five-star rating. Madeline's exceptional service added a personal and attentive touch to our dining experience. The sophisticated ambiance and diverse, delectable menu made for an unforgettable evening. What truly elevated the atmosphere was the magical live music, creating a harmonious backdrop that further enriched the overall experience. Highly recommended for those seeking a perfect blend of exquisite cuisine and enchanting entertainment."

A Setting With A Great Story...

In a former life, 20 North Bridge was the home of the Advertising & Notices Dept. of the famous Scotsman Newspaper- the bustling, beating heart of the publication. Over 50 years later, we have started a new story in this space, with the Grand Café.

Our Food

The kitchen team have produced a seasonal menu packed with the very best produce Scotland has to offer. The atmosphere is relaxed, warm and welcoming, with a range of weekly and monthly food, drink and entertainment events on offer.

Our Drinks

Alongside a carefully selected list of craft gins, Scottish whiskies & other spirits, you will find here our collection of classic and house cocktails. 

On the hunt for your next favourite tipple? We also offer a range of flights including gin and whisky, perfect for the adventurist.

Afternoon Tea

Thought to have been invented by the 7th Duchess of Bedford as a means to counteract the “sinking feeling” which she experienced in late afternoon, this glorious tradition has since become a much loved staple of British socialising.
