The Milkman

7 Cockburn St
Open every day
Espresso & batch brew
Coffee: Guests
Also: Cakes and light meals
Coolness: Beautifully restored stone shop in the Old Town

The Milkman (4♥) is located at the bottom of Cockburn Street in the Old Town, near Waverley Station.

On the coffee front, head barista Jaro chooses new guest coffees every three or so months. He has a keen eye (and palette) for high quality roasters from across the UK and Europe, that you won't find in other coffee shops in Edinburgh.

The owners have lovingly renovated and restored the site that was previously a sweet shop. It has window benches looking on to the street as well as some internal seating. The interior is largely comprised of stone, softened by a charming trimmings. You feel a bit like you're stepping back in time, or perhaps into a fairy tale - but with better coffee!

This is a great spot to drop into when you're acquainting yourself with the nooks and crannies of the Old Town or on the way to the station. A real gem.

  1. Ive been in this place many times since opening. I often find myself popping in before work to start the day. As I live and work in Edinburgh, I find The Milkman is located perfectly and easy enough for me to stop off and pick up a coffee! Hope the business is going well! Ross.
