About Us

Brought together through a shared love of Scottish food and the familiar ritual of drinking tea, the five minds behind The Chaumer have rooted this project in Edinburgh’s bustling New Town. With the intent to place local produce at the centre of an approachable, timelessly classic café, The Chaumer showcases a wholly authentic taste of Scotland in every aspect of its menu, taking each product from local and mostly independent businesses who are lovingly growing and preparing produce from what we have on our door step. 

The interior has been created by the meticulous eyes of our neighbouring bespoke tailor, Stewart Christie & Co, who have continued to demonstrate their penchant for quality and craftmanship, bringing their vision of a delicate, and homely setting to life. 

Whether you are seeking a freshly made breakfast in the early hours, or a glass of wine and tray of charcuterie to share with a friend or colleague as you wind down at the end of the day, The Chaumer is a spot suited to every situation, morning and evening.
