Levels Café and Lounge located on Holyrood Road is the University of Edinburgh's latest café. Its three distinctive Levels/Lounge areas provide a quirky, buzzing but comfortable setting in which to relax and enjoy a varied selection of food and drinks.

Our extensive menu focuses on offering the best produce from Scotland and the UK while providing you with a variety of options to choose from.

For breakfast, the choice is yours - if you want a massive breakfast to kick start your day... our 'Legendary nine item breakfast' has you covered! However if you prefer something on the healthy side why not try our wide range of cereals, yoghurts and Bircher muesli pots. With our 100% fresh Fairtrade Arabica barista coffee and extensive selection of teas available, it is the perfect place to enjoy the most important meal of the day.

We also offer lunch and dinner menus, which are packed full of tasty, light, hot and cold
options such as panini, baguettes, baked potatoes, salads and soups to match any craving you may have. Furthermore, do not forget that Levels Café and lounge is also fully licenced...so why not enjoy a glass of red or white wine from our hand-picked selection, or even a craft beer and we will take care of you.
