We are a small and friendly speciality coffee bar in Edinburgh's New Town. Fortitude only has a few seats but this means we can dedicate time and attention to each coffee served. We really care about our coffee and craft each drink individually on our la Marzocco Linea PB using filtered water and single origin beans. Our coffee is seasonal and lightly roasted to bring out the delicate and complex flavours in every cup.

Our single origin espresso has been carefully roasted for optimal sweetness and works perfectly black or with milk. 

Our filter coffee menu showcases two single origin beans from our roastery. Our filter coffees are hand-brewed using a Kalita wave pour-over. They are usually served black and gently release sweetness as they cool. This is one of our favourite ways to enjoy great coffee.




All our food is delivered fresh from Edinburgh bakeries and kitchens. We have a daily selection of sandwiches from Gannet & Guga and a warming daily soup from Union of Genius. We also offer a delicious selection of cakes, pastries, and doughnuts from Creamed, Glutteny, Au Gourmand and Twelve Traingles. We try our best to make sure there is always a vegetarian, vegan and gluten free option.

If you don't feel like coffee, we have speciality loose leaf teas from Anteaques, some sumptuous hot chocolate and a selection of soft drinks.
