With the countdown until the beginning of Edinburgh International Fringe Festival and the Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2022 into its final week now. The excitement is building here at Linton & Co. with our Summer Takeover well underway!
The past 4 weeks have been thrilling but incredibly demanding for all here of team Linton & Co. As we mentioned in our previous blog post (Find it here: https://www.lintonandco.com/journal/a-year-of-our-coffee-shop-on-princes-street/), many exciting projects that we have been keeping under wraps have come together and become a reality. Our location at The Hub, Edinburgh has grown immensely from our lone Specialty coffee van. The Hub is now home to our very own Ice cream hut and Linton & Co. Bar! Now, you can grab everything you could possibly want from the comfort of The Hub’s Terrace, whilst enjoying the sunny Scottish weather!
Subsequently, with an expansion comes the need to welcome new staff to our team! We have also been busy expanding our skill range out with the usual specialty coffee barista’s, in to becoming fabulous bartenders. Albeit with a little help with training from Innis and Gunn at their Edinburgh Taproom on Lothian Road. Why not check them out here: https://www.innisandgunn.com/taprooms/edinburgh
The Linton & Co. Ice cream hut and Tolbooth Bar
Our Ice Cream hut has been a great asset and has proven very popular. We stock a vast array of delicious Scottish Crolla Ice cream with a choice of tub or waffle cones. With the Heatwave taking over Edinburgh earlier in the month, our ice cream helped keep the thousands of locals and tourists who braved the heat, nice and cool.
Our new bar, known as the Tolbooth Bar (named after the previous name for The Hub) has become a staple location on the Edinburgh Royal Mile, turning the beautiful Terrace into a popular beer garden. We have a wide variety of Scottish beers, gins, whisky’s and soft drink available. As well sporting many local Edinburgh companies produce – such as our house pour gin supplied by Lind & Lime, our Draught beer supplied by the Scottish greats – Innis & Gunn and joyfully juicy soft drinks and mixers provided by Bon Accord. We have an incredible selection for both tourist and locals to enjoy.
Linton & Co. Summer Takeover at Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Another exciting asset to the Linton & Co. Summer takeover is our new Fringe venue, opening within Teviot’s Gilded Garden throughout the month of August. We will be supplying delicious specialty coffee supplied by Obadiah – a local Edinburgh based Coffee Roaster, and cakes for the entirety of the festival, from 10am-10pm everyday! We will also be selling a range of retail items from our Gilded Garden location during the Fringe.
Come check it out from the 3rd August and celebrate a great summer with some great coffee! See you soon.
Team Linton & Co.
