Welcome to the Story Café
The Story Café is good:
Comas took over the café in May 2016 and offers a warm welcome to local residents and visitors to Edinburgh with tasty food available throughout the day at affordable prices, right in the heart of Edinburgh.

The Café is a great space to meet friends and family. It’s a light and bright space that looks out onto the busy Royal Mile, offering tranquillity from the hustle and bustle outside. It’s a family-friendly Café which has lots of space for buggies. Children can run around in the Storytelling Court and be entertained by our Storywall and activity box whilst you relax. The Storytelling Court always has a free exhibition for our visitors to enjoy which changes every month or two.
Judith is a well kent face front of house in the Story Café. Her secret passion is reflexology which is possibly how she manages to stay on her feet so long and still smile.
Kim, Heather, Karen and Ruth will all be seen from time to time helping out for evenings and busy days. You might catch a glimpse of Alex who helps behind the scenes keeping the kitchen engines running smoothly.
All of this is managed by our Café Development Manager, Mary Collins, who keeps this and Serenity Café (our community café down the road) working smoothly. Mary has transformed Serenity Café and is now working her magic on the Story Café.
If you want to comment on your experience, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Mary can also help you with enquiries about catering or special requirements.
Some of our staff are Comas community members and we are delighted the Story Café can offer them a step into paid employment after volunteering in our Serenity Café.
100% of Story Cafe profits will help our projects to do more, with more people.
