A visit to Vesta Bar & Kitchen is more than just a great meal. Together with Social Bite, we’re on a mission to end homelessness in Scotland.

Pay it Forward

Vesta is a restaurant with a difference.

We open exclusively every Monday afternoon between 3 and 5pm to serve a two course lunch to people experiencing homelessness.

We also run a ‘Pay it Forward’ system, where our customers can choose to ‘Pay Forward’ the price of a coffee, lunch or dinner to people most in need.

Paying it Forward at Vesta

It’s simple and easy to do. You’ll find ‘Pay it Forward’ cards on every table at Vesta. Inside, you can choose a donation (£2, £5, £10, £20 or Other) to be added to your bill. It’s entirely at your discretion and all contributions help provide free food throughout the year to people experiencing homelessness.
