the mill 300

The Mill is a welcoming place for people to gather and enjoy good quality coffee or tea and a bite to eat. It is open 9.30 – 2.00 Tuesday – Friday and on 2nd Saturday of each month accompanying the Farmer’s Market.

The Mill is a ‘not for profit’ cafe which uses, as far as possible, local and Fair Trade produce. Any funds raised go to support the work that takes place in the St Joseph’s Centre which is run by Balerno Parish Church for the community of Balerno.

At The Mill you can enjoy a range of teas, coffees and juices along with fresh baking. At lunch time there is a choice of two soups along with toasties and/or baked potatoes. Full details can be found on The Mill St Josephs menu and you can also follow the Mill on Facebook .

The Mill is a member of Edinburgh Community Cafes, click to find out more.


Operating The Mill is a rewarding but labour intensive process; more volunteers to serve, bake, make sandwiches etc. are always welcome. If you would like to be one of the volunteers or would simply like to know more about what is involved, then please contact The Mill @StJoseph’s (, or or Tel 0131 450 7150 The Mill 0900 to 1600 Tues to Fri).
