About Quay Commons
Quay Commons is casual and modern gathering space, bakery and licensed cafe, set in a former bonded warehouse in Leith. We offer brunch and lunch daily, and dinner on Friday and Saturdays.
Our sourdough bread, hand-rolled pastries and cakes are all baked freshly by our talented bakers each day.
We can offer outside catering and can offer anything from a canapés events to sandwiches, salads, cakes and pastries.
RENT OUR VENUE
Quay Commons can host events for up to 60 guests, ranging from lunches, to drinks receptions and dinners
We supply a range of restaurants and cafes across Edinburgh with our freshly-baked breads and pastries, delivered 7-days in our zero-emissions van.
I’ve visited Quay Commons a number of times at the weekend and always had great service. However, at lunchtime on a weekday it wasn’t so busy - but the staff didn’t seem on the ball. A couple of times we had to prompt the staff about an order. I asked for the bill - it never came - I gave up waiting! For two plus hours the chef was making bread - which is great - but the constant noise for the duration was too much. So not the best lunch experience!
We visited for "Pasta Night" again and cannot fault it. Freshly cooked incredible food, natural and fresh flavours served with lovely wine and in a relaxed, informal and very welcoming atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
Excellent pasta, but no forewarning that it was “pasta night”. Poor choice of chilled wines and (sod’s law) the chosen wine was corked. Restaurant was empty on a Friday night, perhaps because it’s difficult to discover what’s on offer and even when you’re open.
Had the continental breakfast again and just as delicious. The smoked salmon is just lush. Lovely service.
Enjoyed the lunch. Carrot cake was excellent
We have been to Quay Commons a few times and enjoy the relaxed style and the delicious food. The menu is simple and the pasta is excellent.
Have to say the continental breakfast is fab. Lovely high quality elements like smoked salmon, granola, apple juice, croissant and jam, ham, fruit. Good enough to share between two.So good we will be back soon, maybe today!
Always served with a smile- freshest and fullest baked goods in Leith :)
Food and service amazing as always
Lovely atmosphere, fresh and tasty food. Helpful and friendly staff.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely visit again soon.
Excellent. Great to see a short menu focusing on fresh and seasonal ingredients. We shared some of your delightful sourdough, with the smoked anchovies/rocket pesto/mozzarella. Very fresh and really compelling flavours. Would love the pesto recipe! We had the mussels pasta and the chorizo cauliflower pasta - both excellent. East Coast cured is just down the road from us, and we’re big fans, so lovely to see their fabulous produce in use. We’ll be back for sure.
Great food Great service
Visited for dinner - limited menu but really good food, service great. Food good value for money, wine pretty expensive at 9/glass for the house one, but tasty.
Lovely space, delicious food and friendly service.
Have been to Quay Commons for Brunch and coffee and cake before. This time three of us went to one of their first pasta nights: Fridays/Saturdays, featuring freshly made pasta. We had a very nice evening. Menu is quite limited, but all the dishes we had were very tasty, washed down with a nice wine in a relaxed atmosphere.
Really lovely brunch .. great bread and variety of choice not the usual same old!No need to rush ...relax and enjoy.We will be back...lunch this time.A great discovery!
Lovely ambience and food
We ordered bacon on toasted sourdough bread but it was far too hard to eat. The crusts were rock hard and black and both of us only ate the middle part. My mouth was sore after trying to eat a few small pieces. The latte coffee was in a really small cup with no handles but the second one was in a mug and much better. I think we just had bad luck and both of us would like to go again as I’ve heard so many good reports from friends.
We booked out Quay Commons for a private birthday dinner on Saturday and had a brilliant evening there. The staff couldn't possibly have been more friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, exactly the standard you would expect from the group of people behind the Gardeners Cottage, my personal favourite was the crab ravioli which I could happily eat every day. As the space is also a bakery we commissioned a birthday cake which was no ordinary cake, it was quite possibly the best cake I have ever eaten, a lavish, rich chocolate mocha gateau. The cake was the last addition to our bespoke menu which the chef kindly put together encompassing a range of dishes suitable for everyone, even those with dietary restrictions. A great selection of wine too, we heartily recommend Quay Commons for a private event and will be popping down very soon for lunch/brunch.
we had lamb shank, surprisingly it was lamb pieces with broad flat pasta and kale. it was cold unfortunately and took a while to be served. Choc brownies were excellent and we were given cream on request with no charge. Service was friendly and helpful and efficient. Atmosphere cafe like. 3 people for lunch.
We love everything!
We really enjoyed our excellent food from start to finish and the staff were attentive and informative, while also being very pleasant. It was quiet for a Saturday night which is why I marked down the atmosphere. Our waitress gave us a loaf of the great sourdough bread on leaving, such a treat. We'll be back.
Fantastic new addition to eating out in Leith. Only one question, why isn't this place full ALL the time ?!
We really enjoyed the dinner, thank you so much.
