We are all about simple good food, big on flavour and locally sourced. Our light and spacious café is situated in a beautiful stone building with a sheltered courtyard where you can sit and enjoy some of our artisan tea or coffee.
Whether you are visiting the area or just passing through en route to Edinburgh or the wonderful East Lothian coastline, we hope you will stop by and stay a while. You will find us in the historic market town of Haddington. We have a large light café and a beautiful courtyard where you can sit and enjoy our hospitality. We welcome dogs in our courtyard and in the doghouse downstairs and are a very popular stop for cyclists exploring the surrounding area.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our coffee, ethically sourced by Artisan Roast in Edinburgh and our wonderful loose leaf tea from the lovely people at Pekoe Tea of Edinburgh.
All our delicious cakes, scones and bakes are made on the premises. You will find old favourites alongside more contemporary bakes, including a selection of gluten free cakes and traybakes. Our menu is freshly prepared each day. Why not try Sarah's delicious soup with one of our sourdough toasted sandwiches or share our mezze board with homemade flatbreads? We offer a takeaway option too in our Loft shop, so if time is tight you can grab a coffee and a bite to eat, before continuing on your way.
We sell freshly baked bread from Dunbar Community Bakery and Khleb Bakery in Pencaitland. We also produce our own bread and rolls which we use in the Café and are planning to develop this further to create our own yeasted loaves and sweet yeasted breads to sell in our shop.
Our Loft shop and takeaway is open Monday to Friday 8am until 3pm and every last Saturday of the month for Haddington's Farmer's Market. We offer takeaway coffee, tea and hot chocolate and a large selection of takeaway food. Everything is freshly prepared by our great team on site and we are always trying to think of new things to tempt you with. You will find a mouthwatering range of sandwiches, freshly baked filled rolls, wraps and baguettes and a great range of salads. Lottie's freshly baked bacon rolls are the perfect antidote to the early morning blues and there is always a choice of soup, our legendary Stovies or our hot special to warm you up.
We have a wonderful variety of Scottish products for you to buy too, from locally produced Hedderwick Honey and Chocolate Tree artisan chocolate to Peter's Yard crispbreads and The Scottish Fruit Company cordials.
Charlotte, Anita and our friendly team look forward to welcoming you soon.
