Penguins Cafe


Penguins Café is overlooking the world-famous Penguins Rock, and with spectacular views of the Pentland Hills; the Café includes an outdoor terraced seating and is open everyday for breakfast from 10am.

The Café serves a selection of savoury pastries, including palm oil free pastries & Scottish Farm Assured Stromboli  - served by the inch!  There are also soups, breakfast rolls, salads and plenty of cakes and treats.  Don’t forget the kids!  Babycinnos & Hot Chocolates, Fresh Juices and Penguins Kids Lunch Bags.

Sustainability plays an important role in the Penguins Café.  We are committed to only using sustainable palm oil, or palm oil free productsAll of our coffee cups are made by local company Vegware and are completely compostable food waste. Meanwhile all of the used coffee grind is collected by Edinburgh Zoo’s garden team and used for compost.

Penguins Café has been awarded the Soil Association Food for Life, Bronze Award,  meaning every egg is a free range egg, and all of our meat is farm assured and can be traced back to the farm.  We never use fish on the Marine Conservation Society “fish to avoid” list, and we are completely free from controversial additives.
