Welcome to toast

Toast is Edinburgh’s first wine cafe located at The Shore in Leith. Offering a casual coffee, wine & food experience, Toast celebrates the pure enjoyment of eating & drinking with friends.

Open 7 days from early until late, serving simple yet imaginative food alongside a carefully curated, predominantly, biodynamic, organic & natural wine list.

Located in a former art gallery, Toast brings a unique cafe destination to The Shore. The place to meet friends for warm conversation.

At Toast we serve food throughout the day including delicious breakfast and brunch dishes like huevos rancheros, shakshuka and avocado toast with poached eggs, lunches of nutritious homemade soup, sourdough sandwiches and salads, and later on in the day, a selection of smaller plates with a Mediterranean influence. At our deli counter, you’ll find a selection of irresistible artisan cakes and pastries, available all day. Some of our dishes are vegan, many are vegetarian. We always have at least 2 choices of gluten-free cake (until it sells out!) and we have non-dairy milks for coffees.
