It is with regret that due to current COVID-19 recommendations Edinburgh Printmakers and Café Ink will be temporarily closed until further notice. Stay safe!

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 our famous delicious Avocado and Edamame Smash on toasted homemade cornbread/sourdough with chilli maple syrup, pea
shoots and soy pumpkin seeds or our delicious Power Bowl with hot smoked salmon, griddled baby courgette and asparagus, broccoli pesto and sesame, topped with a poached egg. Have a look at our sample menu here

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.
