Café-bar in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town up for grabs

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell Saint Giles’ Café Bar, in Edinburgh’s city centre, for the first time in 32 years.


Primely located on St. Giles Street, the café-bar is just a short walk from Edinburgh’s famous high street, the Royal Mile. The business also benefits from tourists visiting St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle, and the many attractions of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

The minimalist décor creates a rustic yet lively charm within the venue, which offers freshly baked delights,  breakfast, lunch, and also offers a selection of alcoholic beverages. Inside there is a servery counter, and a range of tables and benches which cater up to 36 customers. There is also additional outdoor seating for up 14 customers.

Gary Witham, Director Hotels Scotland at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “This is a rare opportunity to buy a freehold just off the Royal Mile - arguably the strongest tourist location in Edinburgh. Guaranteed year round footfall and the ability to create a trend setting bar / café with limited competition so close to Edinburgh Castle will certainly appeal to both UK and overseas buyers.”

St Giles’ Café Bar is on the market at offers over £1,500,000 for the freehold going concern.
