to Cafe 1505

Welcome to Café 1505!  

Café 1505 is owned by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and is the perfect place to visit after a tour of Surgeons’ Hall Museums. It combines sleek, contemporary styling with stunning hand painted illustrations on the walls and ceiling.

The seating looks onto the peaceful manicured gardens of the College, making it an oasis in a bustling part of the city of Edinburgh. Complimentary WiFi is available with power at most seats - we welcome those working, studying or just having some time out. 

We are passionate about food and care about what we produce. 

The Café offers a delicious brew of Brodies Organic coffee or specialty teas alongside freshly squeezed juice, so you can feel refreshed for the day. From fresh bakery to Grab & Go Lunch, this hidden gem has it all.

If you need another excuse to come in and see us, our profits go towards the Global Surgery Foundation, helping to bring access to safe surgery to the countries that need it most.
