Hey There Dovecot!
Hi all! Its been a busy few weeks for Team Pantry. If you haven’t already heard, on the 10th of January we opened our new venue, The Pantry Dovecot! Situated in the heart of The Old Town, we are now proud residents of 10 Infirmary Street.
The cafe is attached to Dovecot Studios, a fine art tapestry studio. For those of you that don’t know, Dovecot Studios was originally public baths (the very first in Edinburgh!), built in 1885 by Robert Morham. The Tapestry Studio now occupies the main swimming pool area, and there are 3 other spaces that are used for events and exhibitions. As well as running the cafe space, we are also caterers for any events that take place in the studio spaces, be it an office conference, an exhibition launch party, or even a wedding!
So what can you expect to eat at The Pantry Dovecot? Well, we’ve stuck to our winning formula of eggs, avo and excellent coffees, but also have some new treats thrown into the mix. Think delicious breakfast granola, nutritious Buddha Bowls, and a whole selection of sweet treats. Pretty much everything is available to takeaway too, which is great for all the busy students and office workers in the area.
Our first week has gone off without a hitch (touch wood!). The cafe is thriving and we are enjoying getting to know our regulars, we have catered 10 events, (feeding over 500 hungry guests!), we’ve said farewell to the Liberty Art Fabrics & Fashion exhibiton, and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Orla Kiely A Life in Pattern, which kicks off on Thursday 7th of February.
We hope that you’ll come down and see us soon. The cafe opening hours are Monday - Friday 9am-5pm, Saturdays 10am-5pm.
