Red Kite Cafe (3♥) is a big open cafe on busy Cadzow Place, otherwise known as London Road, near Abbeyhill.
They're serving up Artisan Roast espresso-based coffees, in tune with their ethos of using great quality ingredients. You'll pick up all your coffee favourites plus hot chocolate and a range of Anteaques teas.
Red Kite is definitely a foodie haven. They take sourcing seriously, prioritising and naming the local producers who supply their ingredients. Brunch is a major highlight with plenty to choose from. They may include home made granola with yoghurt and compote, big breakfasts (for meat-lovers and vegetarians), shakshuka (eggs baked in tomato and peppers with lime yoghurt) and sausage rolls with onion marmalade.
There are also hearty lunches, soups, salads, tortillas, and the front counter is covered with an array of sweet sticky cakes and pastries.
There's plenty of tables and chairs and attentive friendly table service. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is made to feel welcome - with high chairs for little people and a bench with stools across the wide glass frontage if you're in the mood for watching the world go by.
