Coffee at Off the Walk

For some reason Off the Walk while registering on my scope had not prompted me to visit. This is patently ridiculous as it’s only around five minutes walk from my abode, just next to the Out of the Blue Drill Hall on Dalmeny Street, with which it links.

I visited on their Day of the Dead weekend and stopped at three of the stalls. I’ll review the other two in coming days, but for today let’s start where I started with coffee at a stall that was trading for the first time.

Run by two Irish sisters, they’re still working on a name. I offered up a suggestion so it will be interesting to see what they go with. Alongside coffee they were serving a selection of bagels, but I didn’t partake.


They have a beautiful lever espresso machine that is oh so shiny. They were serving Williams & Johnson coffee with today’s choice a Guatemalan.

My espresso (£2) was pulled with due care and attention and soon with me. It was bright and invigorating; a great start of the day shot. I liked it very much.

So overall, it was good to find such good coffee on offer at this great little market. The place has an excellent buzz about it and this was very much aided by the friendly warmth of the women at the coffee stall. Make sure to stop by soon.
