News: New Wine Cafe for Leith

Toast Interior with Sommelier Seli Shama


 Leith’s first wine café – TOAST – has opened at 65 The Shore. Located in a former art gallery. Open 7 days from early until late, Toast serves simple yet imaginative food alongside a carefully-curated, predominantly, biodynamic, organic and natural wine list. Wines can be enjoyed by the glass, or sommelier Seli Shama can create a bespoke tasting menu to suit individual tastes. A tasting room, that will host regular events, is opening at a later date.

Head Chef Lizzie Arber and her team are creating a menu of great-tasting dishes with ingredients sourced from local suppliers. With seasonal produce at the heart of the breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch and evening menus, Toast will be taking well-loved dishes and giving them an exciting new twist. From classic breakfast dishes in the morning to artisanal salads, soups and sourdough sandwiches at lunch, sharing platters and tapas-style plates in the evening, there will be something perfect to choose for any time of the day.

Toast’s coffee is sourced from Monmouth Coffee Company, the oldest roaster in Britain. A choice of creative cakes, pasties and breads, including vegan and gluten-free options, are sourced from Quay Commons, Pastry Section and Grams. A hand-picked selection of craft beers sits alongside a short but intriguing cocktail list, devised by Toast’s expertly-trained bar staff.

Toast ExteriorOwner Zak Hanif commented: “Toast’s philosophy is to welcome everyone at all times. One table may be enjoying flat whites and cake, whilst the next are drinking craft beers, and another is sharing a charcuterie plate with a bottle of wine. The uniting factor is the unfaltering quality of everything we will be serving.”
