Traverse Bar Café

10 Cambridge Street Edinburgh EH1 2ED

Soup, pasta, risotto, burgers, all featuring decent ingredients and attention to detail in the kitchen. But that's not really the point. With some of Britain's most progressive playwriting showcased in the theatre alongside, this basement café-bar is an important arty hang-out whether you've got a ticket or not, crackling with cultural frisson during the Festival and buzzing for much of the remaining 11 months.
