Paolozzi's Kitchen


Located inside Modern Two next to the vast 'Vulcan' sculpture by renowned Scottish artist Eduardo Paolozzi, this exciting new café is surely one of Edinburgh's most unusual and thought-provoking settings for lunch, coffee or cake. 

Take in Paolozzi's monumental artwork while tucking into a range of honest Italian classics with a Scottish twist, made with local and seasonal ingredients. Popular highlights include our smoked salmon bruschetta with horseradish herby riccotta, authentic involtini, and an array of fabulous seasonal salads. 

Our delicious cakes and freshly baked scones are available all day, along with teas, coffees and cold drinks - including our famous homemade cherry lemonade.
