Pep & Fodder

11 Waterloo Pl
Open every day
Coffee: Dear Green
Also: Light meals
Coolness: Grab a coffee on your way to the amazing Calton Hill

Pep & Fodder (3♥) is a cafe that's open all day, serving breakfasts, snacks and lunches. They do a good job of preparing Glaswegian Dear Green coffee.

Pep & Fodder is centrally located for visitors and locals on Waterloo Place which is a continuation of Princes Street at the East End. You can eat in or grab take-away on your way to nearby Calton Hill which is an absolute highlight of the town - 360 degree views of the Old Town, New Town and over the Forth to Fife.

On offer is all-day-breakfasts, pastries, cakes, soups, salads, sandwiches and pannini. The set up has low and high timber tables and a few tables outside on the pavement in good weather.

By way of a side promotion, Pep & Fodder has the same owners as the lovely Bon Vivant restaurants in Thistle Street and Stockbridge as well as Devil's Advocate in Advocate's Close. Though these restaurants are not renown for their coffee they are nice for evening meals and drinks.



  1. Firstly, thanks for this blog as its been so good to use. Pep and Fodder sadly missed the mark on my visit compared to your experience. The flat white I ordered was more of a milky coffee. The service was not good worse as the server spilled both our coffee's on our saucers and left us to get napkins and mop it up.

  2. I visit Pep regularly and find the service and coffee to be consistently excellent.
