The Beach House is a beach-side café on Portobello promenade (Edinburgh's Seaside).  We serve fabulous coffees, amazing gelatos and sorbets, mouth watering cakes (including gluten free offerings), delicious breakfasts and  heavenly lunches. From mid May we will once again open in the evenings and offer a simple sharing menu - seafood, charcuterie, cheese. Simple food, great wine and a view like no other.  

Our aim is to provide delicious, where possible organic, locally sourced food.  We have a small garden and grow many of the herbs, flowers and salads that we use everyday.  We have recently been granted an alcohol license so we can now offer you a glass of wine, an Edinburgh 'Seaside" gin and tonic, a bottle of craft ale from Portobello or a chilled award winning cider from Dunbar.   

Our breads are freshly baked daily: no additives, no preservatives and no palm oil as are our croissants and pastries.  Our homemade cakes are made using local, free range organic eggs and flours, our gluten free cakes use only the best ingredients.    Oxenfoord Organics provides the seasonal vegetables for our soups.  Our meats, other than charcuterie ( they have their own stories) come from Findlays's of Portobello, free range and naturally fed.  Our seafood is as local as we can get it:  lobsters from the Forth, mussels from the West Coast.  The Artisan gelatos, ice creams and sorbets are made for us in Haddington using organic milk and the finest natural ingredients.  Thank you Esther at The Wild Flower Shop for keeping our tables looking beautiful.

Try our Scottish Fruit Cordials made here in Portobello, the locally sourced Sea Buckthorn or our award winning loose leaf teas  from Eteaket.

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

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

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