Tea House, Eatery

& Wine Bar

The Chaumer is Edinburgh distilled:
Friendship, conversation, wonderful surroundings and exceptional food and coffee” Alexander McCall Smith


The romance of a lost time and the individuality of creative thought have been brought together in this friendly independent teahouse and wine bar in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town. We offer stylish elegance in an unhurried environment where you can enjoy locally sourced food, fine wines and teas, all served with a warm welcome.


The Chaumer is a dedicated supporter of Edinburgh’s producers and suppliers – our menu focuses on local produce although the dishes are not limited to traditional Scottish fare. We aim to suit the needs of all customers; enjoy a warming breakfast in a bright setting, take away a coffee and maybe some lunch, and come back for a tray of our Scottish charcuterie and cheeses or sample our homemade dishes of the day. We offer top quality wines and teas as part of a wide-ranging drinks list.
