Overview

Situated in the Modern 2 building of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Café Modern Two is a sanctuary in the West End that offers a daily changing lunch menu using great local and Scottish produce.

 

Table service at Café Modern Two – the renowned home of Surrealist art in Scotland – is rather fittingly set around Paolozzi’s vast Vulcan sculpture, surely one of the more unusual backdrops to lunch.

 

LOCALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS

 

At Café Modern Two they are passionate about food and very proud to operate a ‘scratch kitchen’, meaning that wherever possible everything they cook, bake or prepare is made from scratch each day, in their kitchen. The cafe specialises in using local, fresh and seasonal ingredients, so lunch and afternoon tea menu changes regularly to incorporate local and seasonal produce, including fresh vegetables from their kitchen and herb garden across the road at Café Modern One.

 

CONTEMPORARY FOOD

 

Food is decidedly contemporary however, with starters like smoked salmon, caper and spring onion filo tarts served on a winter celeriac and dill slaw. How about following that with a main such as an autumnal salad of chilled Moroccan spiced salmon, with roasted squash, fennel and bulghur wheat topped with flaked almonds and coriander.

 

Are you more of a traditionalist? Try  classic chicken, leek and mustard pie with poppy seed puff served with green beans and kale. If there’s room, perhaps Sir or Madam could contemplate the plum, ginger and apple (from kitchen garden at Café Modern One) crumble with an almond and oat topping served with a crème anglaise? 

 

And there are always dairy-free and gluten-free options available – they are as sensitive about dietary requirements as some of our customers have to be.

 

HIGHLY ACCLAIMED AFTERNOON TEA

 

Café Modern Two also serves highly acclaimed Afternoon Tea, where you’ll enjoy a cake stand laden with gourmet sandwiches, homemade scones with lashing of cream and (homemade) jam, along with a fabulous assortment of freshly made savoury & sweet treats.  Afternoon is served daily from 2.30-4.30pm, You can purchase Afternoon Tea gift vouchers  which are available to buy on their website. A great gift idea for Father’s Day, Mother’s Day,  birthdays and general chit chat times with friends, buy yours today!

 

LOCATION

 

Easily accessible by a very pleasant stroll along the Water of Leith or a 2 minute drive from the city centre with plenty of parking, Café Modern Two is the sister café to Café Modern One, offering daily changing ‘cooked-from-scratch’ set lunch menus and of course still our signature home-baking and fabulous coffee, and peach of a short but perfectly-formed wine list.
