Lovely place with views of the beach. Popular and airy. Unfortunately the vegan chef is against meat and omitted it from the game terrine dish. Had to send it back. Was returned with tiniest amount of meat added. Shame.

I stopped here on a whim as I fancied a coffee. What a lovely find. Staff super friendly and helpful. Coffee and cake was super value and delicious. The place was buzzing and packed. I think this is a good sign. Definitely I will revisit.

It's really nice here, love views of the beach and the sea and everything is top-notch. It's a bit pricy compared to some of the local competition but the emphasis is on quality - nice coffee, great breakfast options, lovely cakes. Recommend.

The Beach House is a beach-side café on Portobello promenade (Edinburgh's Seaside). The cafe serves award winning Organic coffees, delicious breakfasts of croissants, scones or poached eggs & bacon; for lunch our menu includes sandwiches, panini, delicious salads and heart warming soups. We also offer a range of special breads – focaccia, seaweed; wholemeal and fresh baguettes. For afternoon tea, why not try our range of fabulous cakes. From inside, customers look out onto the shimmering expanse of the Forth; seagulls wheeling, ships steaming, surf crashing, kids playing, its location is as good as it gets. One reviewer put it 'The Beach House is simply café perfection'. Come and find us on the Promenade at the foot of Bath Street, Portobello.
