Williams & Johnson Waverley Mall (5♥) is located in the heart of bustling Princes Street Edinburgh, right by the iconic Balmoral Hotel and stairs that lead down to the railway station.
The Mall is set back from the street and intentionally low profile - so as not to interfere too much with the Royal Mile silhouette of sandstone spires.
W&J occupy a glassed double frontage with chairs and tables inside and out (weather permitting). They're serving up their own seasonally changing single origins - espresso-based and batch brew filter. You can also pick up bags of beans to take home.
We're big fans of W&J's coffee, and have been since they set up in Leith in 2016. We believe they're amongst Scotland's best speciality coffee roasters and consistently choose and roast to create juicy, tasty, sweet coffee, changing regularly and sourcing from far and wide.
Their menu includes high quality pastries, cheese toasted sandwiches, health-giving smoothies and other drinks and snacks.
Adding to their natural cool you'll find a selection of designer homewares and accessories, teaming up with their mates from their original roastery cafe on The Shore at Custom Lane.
