Café Blue

We’re pleased to announce, Cafe Blue will be welcoming customers back for their favourite home-cooked classics on Monday 6 July!

To keep you - our customers and our team safe, there will be a few changes to the way things work. But don’t worry, our friendly team (donning their PPE) and handy signs will be there to guide you. And if you have any questions about our measures, the team will be happy to answer.

Here’s how we’re planning to reduce the risk of infection:

  • To avoid congestion, we’ll be asking you to enter the café through the patio area doors. You can get to these by continuing through the garden centre shop, and take a left through to the stoneware area just before you get to Edinburgh Woollen Mill. But don’t worry there’ll be plenty of signs to guide you.
  • To make sure there aren’t too many people in the café at once, we’ll ask you to queue in the patio area, staying two metres apart from other families until a member of the Café Blue team directs you to your table.
  • Please be seated with your household only, and in groups of 4 or less.
  • To adhere to government guidelines, there’s also a few details we’ll need to take before you come in, but as always, we’ll keep your information safe in keeping with GDPR guidelines.
  • If you’ve been to us before, you’ll know how busy some areas of the café can get – particularly around the till and condiment area. That’s why once you’re seated, we’ll now be coming to you to take your order and bring cutlery and condiments over with your meals.
  • We’ll be operating on a reduced team, and so we’re still able to offer the same level of quality meals, we’ll be offering a reduced menu for the moment. But you’ll be pleased to see some of your favourite classics on there!
  • Once you’re ready to pay the bill, the team will direct you to the till when it’s clear of other customers and staff. Where possible, please pay by contactless.
  • We’ll ask you to exit through the main doors of the café, and hope to see you again soon!

Please note:

We won’t be taking bookings at the moment. We feel that we’re able to manage the situation better on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Our toilets will be open to Café Blue customers only. We’ll be cleaning these on a regular basis, but feel that the safest option for all is to reduce the number people using them and the number of people entering the café at a time.

Opening times will be:

Monday – Saturday, 9am – 3pm

Sunday, 10am, 3pm
