If you’d like to knit one, purl one and sip one, we’ve got the perfect spot.

The Yarn Cake is Scotland’s only dedicated knitting cafe.

Situated on Queen Margaret Drive, just a few clicks from The Botanic Gardens, the small but perfectly formed store is craft and coffee heaven.

NEXT: Relax in the Japanese Buddhist tradition with the city’s central chill out spot.

As well as stocking an impressive choice of needles, notions and yarns, it also offers a mouth-watering selection of German home-baking in its bright and colourful cafe. Their speciality hot chocolate with spices and marshmallows are sew, sew good!
