New Venue of the Monday Evening Conversation Session from 24th April

After two years of having the conversations in Yellow Bench and now White Sushi, we are starting our new conversations with Santosa at 21 Albert Street. Santosa is a Yoga and Meditation Centre, and has a spacious cafe which can easily accomodate our conversation groups.

The time has also changed to 6:30pm. It’s due to the opening hours of the venue.

We are starting on 24th April at 6:30pm with an interesting topic

Is having a goal in life effective in becoming successful?

We are looking forward to see you there!

See you in the New Year!

Dear friends!

Today is our last meeting this year as our venues will be closed on the Christmas Days and New Year Day and the bank holiday on the 2nd January. We will be back on 8th and 9th January 2017.

On behalf of the team, I would like to wish you merry Christmas, a restful break and fantastic New Year’s Eve party. Hope the New Year will be generous in meaningful conversations and insights into other cultures.



LCC and the results of the referendum

As the project celebrating diversity and equality, in the view of the current events, we would like to express our concern, but at the same trust in the values of the society we chose to live in. Nicola Sturgeon and other Scottish politicians confirm that the contribution of all the immigrants is valued and welcome in Scotland, and we trust that.

If you feel concerned and would like to discuss the consequences of Brexit, please come to our conversation cafés. We will be there for you.

We meet three times a week:

  • Monday mornings: 10.30am to 12.00pm at Out Of The Blue Drill Hall Café, 30 – 38 Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh EH6 8RG
  • Monday evenings: 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Yellow Bench (downstairs), 31 Crighton Place, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 4NY
  • Sunday afternoons: 4.00pm to 5.30pm at Sketchy Beats Café (downstairs), 208 Great Junction Street, Edinburgh, EH6 5LW

You can check  topics for the discussion under the When and where section

We are also on Facebook and MeetUp


See you next year!

Big thanks to everyone who’s joined our conversations this year!  Thank you for making us smile and laugh, thank you for making us think, thank you for inspiring us and thank you for opening our minds to so many new and brilliant ideas!

We are now taking a 4 week break until Sunday 10th January 2016 and we will miss our weekly conversations very much but look forward to seeing what the new year brings 🙂

Wishing you all happy holidays,

The Leith Conversation Cafes team
