Café Ink is based at Castle Mills, the new home for Edinburgh Printmakers. This renovated, vibrant building provides the perfect space for art, creativity and delicious food at the heart of Edinburgh’s Fountainbridge area.

Our stylish contemporary café space is surrounded by high windows that allow the place to be bright even on the cloudiest of days. Away from the city centre and by the Union Canal, Café Ink’s courtyard becomes one of the best spots in the city for brunch, lunch or a light bite on a beautiful sunny day. Enjoy a delicious miso ramen broth, slow braised belly pork, soy egg, pickled shimeji mushrooms, edamame, pak choi, noodles, spring onion, chilli and sesame oil or our famous Power Bowl with hot smoked salmon, griddled baby courgette and asparagus, broccoli pesto and sesame, topped with a poached egg.

Our food is contemporary while homely, vibrant, fresh and made with local ingredients. We believe in staying ahead of the newest food trends while providing classic favourites.
