Every dogwalker who pauses for breath at the pond, or any parent who has stood shivering on the sidelines of the sports pitches, will undoubtedly agree that the Milk Coffee Shack is a welcome addition to Inverleith Park. Permanently located between the playpark and the Sundial Garden, the shack offers a choice selection of drinks and bakes to take away. Naturally, coffees of varying tastes and sizes make up most of the menu, but there are also a few refrigerated fizzy options and a velvet-textured hot chocolate that will thaw chilly fingers and satisfy cravings. One of the highlights among the cakes comes in the form of the unexpectedly wonderful match of bitter pistachio, unmistakable cardamom heat, and sweet white chocolate in a soft dough cookie. Humans aren’t the only ones catered for either: water bowls are available and dog biscuits are for sale.
