The place to be to make a real difference, the Old School Café in Edinburgh works with Canongate Youth to employ unemployed young people to give them training in hospitality, catering and customer service skills. The produce they use is locally sourced, so you can really feel like you’re helping the community while you sit back and enjoy a coffee. Their menu offers homemade toasties, wraps and paninis, with a huge range of fillings, ranging from spicy tandoori chicken to tuna mayonnaise. They also serve a selection of cakes, biscuits and tiffin, which are perfect with a good old cup of tea. If you’re bringing a group, you can go for one of Old School Café’s buffet meals, which come with sandwiches, sausage rolls, pate and meat skewers, for you to nibble on while you chat.
