Coburg House is a collection of around 60 artist studios, in a beautiful converted building near The Shore in Leith. Twice a year they open their doors to the public, and have received up to 1000 people through their doors. As there are so many studios to see, it would be cruel not to provide a coffee/tea and cake stop. I was lucky enough to win the pitch for a pop up café.
For the Christmas Open Studio, we were built a temporary café counter and bar by Plywood and Bolts, Woodside Parker Kirk architects. Along with a cosy bench seating area, which was great, saved a lot of set up time and mostly looked inviting for customers to visit!
Being a pop-up, we kept the menu very simple each time, but all freshly made with love of course, below are a few of the offerings…
Thai Squash, Sweet potato, coconut and lentil, Celeriac and Apple, Mediterranean Lentil
Filled Manna House rolls,
Hummus and roasted vegetables, Greek salad, Coronation chicken, Ham, cheese and slaw
topped with Blackcurrants from Moira and Paul’s garden
Lemon drizzle, Banana loaf, Carrot Cake
Sea Salt Brownies
Gluten Free Orange and Almond cake
Raspberry and Coconut cake
Edinburgh Roast filter coffee and The Wee Tea company teas
