Tucked away on the edge of Bruntsfield Links is an Edinburgh coffee lovers mecca, The Black Medicine Coffee Co. or technically, this is Black Medicine Coffee Co. number 2, the original is near Chambers Street.
As soon as you open the door, the amazing smell of fresh coffee and sweet pastry envelops you and sends you into an ordering frenzy. “Get one of each” screamed the small, caffeine crazed person inside my head. We settled however, for a medium (yes, they use normal terms here, not a venti, grande or tall in sight) latte, a decaf Americano & a blueberry muffin.
Each coffee came with a delicious Lotus Biscoff biscuit and the coffee itself was really good quality, packing a real punch.The muffin was also really fresh and again, really good quality. We had to share it as it was quite a size.
With coffee and cakes this good while also offering soup, breakfast rolls and smoothies, all served up in a cool, comfortable setting, it really is coffee lovers dream spot.
