The John Hope Gateway

The John Hope Gateway building was opened in October 2009. Designed by Edward Cullinan Architects, it has been built with sustainability in mind and to that end, has many award winning and inspirational elements within its design and construction.

The Terrace Cafe

The assisted service Terrace Cafe overlooks Inverleith Lawn with great views across to the Castle beyond. The Cafe with its seated (and parasol covered) patio is undergoing a major internal refurbishment and due to re-open in March 2016 all year round from 10am each day offering a wide range of tasty options from snacks to home cooked hot dishes, speciality hot drinks to cool soft drinks plus bottled beers and wines.

East Gate Lodge and Coffee Bar

Opened in August 2010, the East Gate Coffee Bar is a real gem and a perfect compliment to the other facilities on site, allowing visitors to the Garden a different opportunity to those already found in the Terrace Cafe and at the John Hope Gateway.
