|Coolness: A rare opportunity to have quality coffee on your train ride|
The Luckie Beans Coffee cart is a welcome sight as you make your way through the airy entry hall of Edinburgh's Haymarket Station toward the ticket barriers.
They offer tasty flat whites using their Love Lane house blend, with beans originating from India, Kenya, Guatemala and Brazil. Expert baristas bring out the sweetness, rounding out the gutsy brew that will keep traditional and more adventurous speciality coffee lovers happy on their journey.
Roasting out of Berwick upon Tweed, Luckie Beans make regular appearances at markets around Southern Scotland, but their coffee cart is also a permanent fixture for Edinburgh's commuters and cross-country travellers.
Understandably, coffee is Luckie's main priority, but you can also pick up a muffin, danish or croissant to help soak up the caffeine as well as crisps, biscuits, chocolate bars and other train-worthy snacks and cold drinks.
It's often hard to get good quality coffee at railway stations, which are generally known for ghastly ubiquitous chain stores. It's great to see Luckie on the Haymarket station menu and the retro styling of their coffee cart is also super cute.
To top it off, you can choose from a selection of Luckie's beans, all bagged up and ready to go, for brewing at home or work.
