Rooftop artisan coffee shop opens with an amazing backdrop


Linton & Co, an independent speciality coffee and luxury brownie company founded in 2015, have opened their very own flagship café on the rooftop of Moorgarth’s Waverley Mall in Edinburgh.

Situated in the heart of the capital, with Edinburgh Castle as the backdrop, Linton & Co will be serving coffee from Clifton Coffee’s Direct Trade E1 Project and showcasing their handcrafted brownies based on their secret family recipe, using only the finest of ingredients. They pick local fruits when in season to make their own house jam which they use for their Peanut Butter & Strawberry Jam brownies and handmade salted caramel from Isle of Skye Sea Salt.



The brownies available within their flagship store range from original chocolate, white chocolate & raspberry, triple chocolate, salted caramel, and peanut butter & strawberry jam as well as a brand-new vegan and gluten free offering. They will also be adding new flavours to co-inside with the seasons as they develop.


Open daily from 8am, they will serve a range of breakfast and lunch options throughout the day including their fresh smoothies and home-made porridge, where you can choose from ‘The Belter’ - Linton & Co brownie bites with caramel sauce, ‘The Nova Scotia’ - Bacon & maple syrup and ‘Kiss from a Rose’ - Edible rose petals, almond butter, pumpkins seeds and honey.


Linton & Co. was founded by Alex & Lara as an Event Specialty Coffee Company, touring the country in their beautiful Vintage Citroen H Van. They have served coffee at some of Scotland's most prestigious and large-scale events including The European Championships, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Royal Highland Show, The Scottish Golf Open and Solheim Cup to name a few. Since then, Linton & Co. has grown to incorporate much more including their first online shop which opened in 2019, offering their Luxury Handcrafted Brownies to order online.


Lara Wilson, Co-Owner of Linton & Co said “This has always been a dream for us to open our very own flagship cafe in the centre of Edinburgh and what better place than in the heart of the city, on Waverley Mall’s rooftop with Edinburgh Castle as the backdrop. We are delighted to open and share our coffee, hand crafted brownies and so much more with you all.”



Situated in a prime location, next to the iconic Balmoral Hotel, with excellent travel links in and out of the city centre and direct access to the train station. Linton & Co will have an extensive indoor space and an outdoor garden area on the rooftop of Waverley Mall. They will also have a great retail section serving a selection of products from home brew equipment, handmade chocolate to Huskee cups and much more. The coffee and brownie company also plan to collaborate with other local independent companies once they are open to support each other as the city centre re-opens.


Daryll Bunce, Director of Innovation at Moorgarth said: “We are delighted to welcome Linton & Co to our excellent rooftop area here at Waverley as we continue to collaborate with further local independent companies. We feel very strongly about supporting local independent businesses and retailers especially during these times as we emerge from lockdown. Linton & Co have a wonderful offering and we are huge fans of their coffee and of course their brownies. We want to work together to give them an opportunity to shine as they make a comeback and provide a very current and relevant offering to our customers as we welcome them back to the city centre.”
