Vesta / noun /
1. The goddess of home

Serving craft beer, creative cocktails, delicious food and warm welcomes, seven days a week.

Make yourself at home at Vesta Bar & Kitchen.

Set in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, we’re open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From the kitchen, you can expect fresh, seasonal dishes with big flavours. While our bar is stocked with great gins, interesting wines and a range of hoppy goodness with refreshing lagers, local craft beers and a guest ale tap on rotation.


But a visit to Vesta is more than just a great meal. We’re also a restaurant with a difference. Together with Social Bite, we’re on a mission to end homelessness in Scotland.

We open exclusively every Monday afternoon to serve a two course meal to people experiencing homelessness.  Our customers can also ‘Pay Forward’ the cost of a coffee, lunch or dinner to people who need it most.

We also provide training and employment programmes for members of the Social Bite Academy, the charity’s 4-year, paid course for vulnerable people. For further information, visit

But, on a hugely positive note, our kitchen remains open as we support our partner, Social Bite producing food for those that need it most.

Social Bite is running a nationwide food delivery service - focussing on getting supplies out in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen to:

  •  *  Homeless people
  •  *  Families that were relying on free school meals and now have no access
  •  *  Those who have been made redundant due to the crisis and are now in food poverty.


Social Bite will be producing 3000 food and essentials packs every day for as long as needed and we are proud to play our part in this vital service.

You can also help.

Your support, alongside that of the Scottish Government, will make a difference to those in need.

Rest assured, Vesta Bar & Kitchen will be back as soon as we can. We exist for a reason. And that means we will do everything we can to ensure we survive, relaunch, rebuild and continue in our mission to end homelessness in Scotland and help the most vulnerable amongst us.

Thank you to our team, our customers, suppliers and supports - stay safe and healthy, take care of everyone around you and we look forward to raising a glass together on the other side.
