Tribe Favourites: Nearby New Town Restaurants

Welcome to Tribe Favourites; our new #TribeVibe series of tips and recommendations provided by our Tribe Teachers on everything from fitness, diet and nutrition, local insights, general lifestyle/ wellbeing and just about anything and everything else! Today we’re discussing with our Tribe Teachers about their favourite restaurants (healthy and not-so-healthy) in the area surrounding our New Town studio location.

Leo’s Beanery

Leo’s Beanery is Tribe’s original neighbour at our original location, on the corner of Northumberland and Howe Streets. As a beanery, they are known for their delicious coffee, however Leo’s also serves an impressive assortment of options for breakfast and lunch, and some irresistible baked confections. Leo’s is a favourite of Tribe Teachers and clients alike, and you’ll find both throughout the day having meetings or hanging out at Leo’s. Be sure to pop in for a latte or treat after class and say hi!

Some testimonials from our Tribe Leaders:

Jacob: I have my go-to breakfast at Leo’s. Poached eggs and smoked salmon with avocado and mushrooms on an English muffin, hollandaise on top.

Tessa: I always get a “Tessa Latte.” It’s filled to the brim with whole milk and a ton of sugar. And it has to be in a paper takeaway cup, even if I’m sitting in.

Emma Flynn: I also stick with their coffee. I get an oat flat white with just a touch of honey. But I must have mine in the Leo’s china.

Leo’s Beanery is located at 23A Howe Street, Edinburgh EH3 6TF and can be reached at +44 (0) 131 556 8403. For more information, click here!

Just around the corner (literally) is wee buddha, an Asian pub and kitchen.

Just a few steps around the corner from Tribe Yoga New Town is Wee Buddha (stylised “wee buddha”), a small but eclectic Asian restaurant that doubles as a pub with a strong selection of draught and bottled beer. Think of an Asian fusion bistro with a Scottish pub-like vibe at very reasonable prices. wee buddha is a favourite for staff special occasions, and a charming spot for a cozy cocktail or a wee date night. 

Favourite dish?

Tessa: The salt & spicy squid is a must-have.

Adam: Haggis wontons. I absolutely love haggis. I actually had haggis pizza for dinner last night.
