Don't tell all your friends, because I want to find a table when I go back to Edinburgh! Was a bit of a grey, overcast day when we visited for a late breakfast, but the decorating and the staff were cheerful and the food was...More

The staff are friendly and polite but two of our drinks didn't arrive until we had finished our food, and another was spilt over the table. The food is fine (nothing special though) but the portions are tiny especially considering the high price tag! I...More

This busy ( with good reason ) restaurant has a varied menu. We only had the Mediterranean Platter which was sufficient for two, & delicious. Just right for sitting at one of the outside tables in the sun. Vg service.

We enjoyed our stay after a walk on the beach. The vegan options were great and we really liked the cake - buffet! Will definitely come back!

The Beach House is a beach-side café on Portobello promenade (Edinburgh's Seaside). The cafe serves award winning Organic coffees, delicious breakfasts of croissants, scones or poached eggs & bacon; for lunch our menu includes sandwiches, panini, delicious salads and heart warming soups. We also offer a range of special breads – focaccia, seaweed; wholemeal and fresh baguettes. For afternoon tea, why not try our range of fabulous cakes.

From inside, customers look out onto the shimmering expanse of the Forth; seagulls wheeling, ships steaming, surf crashing, kids playing, its location is as good as it gets.

One reviewer put it 'The Beach House is simply café perfection'.

Come and find us on the Promenade at the foot of Bath Street, Portobello.
