Also: Beans, cakes & soup
|Coolness: The Police Box is pretty special|
Cobolt Coffee (5♥), in Police Box in Marchmont Crescent, is on a pedestrianised junction that has a village feel.
Owners Dan and Harriet are very much focussed on the coffee while offering pastries and other sweet accompaniments along with Union of Genius soup and rolls. They're also super-friendly and very happy to chat you through the coffee they serve.
They use Falkirk-based Roast Central beans and do them proud. They scroll through a steady stream of seasonal and small batch beans, changing every month or so.
Big thumbs up to Cobolt. If you live in the neighbourhood, you're very lucky. If you don't, it's worth the trip to try it. Cobalt is quite close to The Meadows so if you're heading there for a picnic or to walk the dog, you can slide on by the Police Box for a brew on the go.
