Our coffee shop is a welcoming place for all, staffed by friendly volunteers who are always ready to chat, offer advice, and of course great coffee and snacks.
Our coffee shop – more star, less bucks – is The Open Door’s outward face to the general public in Morningside, Edinburgh. It is open to anyone: we champion diversity.
Of course, many people who use our services have a variety of support needs, so you may find having a cuppa is a different experience to that of your usual coffee shop. You‘ll see first-hand how our volunteer staff do more than just serve coffee: they provide friendship to some of the most vulnerable people in our community. Volunteers are encouraged to spend as much time as possible interacting with clients, listening to their concerns and where appropriate offering support or information.
We have free WI-FI and what is more, our prices are kept intentionally low to promote inclusion.
