Eating & Drinking

From a flat white to a long black, Burr & Co. has become part and parcel of Edinburgh’s coffee culture. Enjoy free Wi-Fi, baby-changing areas, and—of course—homemade cakes, pastries and sandwiches.

Modern Scottish cooking

At the heart of The Principal Edinburgh George Street are five listed Georgian townhouses, built in 1775 as homes for the city’s most prosperous citizens—among  them James Ferrier, a lawyer, who bought No. 25 and whose daughter, Susan, was considered by Sir Walter Scott to be the equal of Jane Austen.

Their former home is now The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen, where local Executive Chef Colin Fleming champions modern Scottish cooking.


Showcasing Scottish produce

The Printing Press Bar & Kitchen showcases the exceptional quality of ingredients available in Scotland, creating contemporary takes on classic dishes.
Its late-night cocktail bar offers a collection of local spirits, from single malts to Edinburgh gin and Scottish vodka.

Coffee culture

Drop in for a drink, a charge to your laptop (with fast, free Wi-Fi), or simply to get lost in a good book.

At Burr & Co. we use freshly-roasted, ethically-sourced beans from Caravan Coffee to create our own George Street blend, with notes of chocolate and berries. Enjoy tea from Shibui, plus juices, cakes, pastries, salads and sandwiches.
