For the Love of Coffee!

Listen up coffee lovers. We want to whisper a little sweet something in your ear that is going to make your taste buds quiver and your bank balance sing!

The longest January in the history of Januarys is behind us. You made it. We made it. We’re all delighted. Well done! But let’s face it, even with the forced romance of Valentine’s Day approaching, it’s hard to embrace February when it’s still so cold and dark! So we wanted to lighten the mood. Make sure you have a spring in your step well before Spring has even sprung.

We love coffee. You love coffee. Coffee is life right? We’re drinking coffee right now while we write this blog. It’s comforting and warming. It’s our daily delicious treat to ourselves. It’s the thing we enjoy whether we need a boost or we’re searching for some quiet solitude. In fact, if coffee, as we now know it, existed in the days of Shakespeare and sonnets, there would definitely be one beautifully dedicated to the beans, crema, latte art and that aroma. Ahh that sweet aroma. Ok we digress. Let’s get to the point.

*Our lovely range of hot drinks, from the perfect flat white to our epic teas are now all just £2!* 

Whether you sit in or take away, whether topped with chocolate flakes or made with oat milk, our delicious hot drinks menu is offered to you for £2 per pour in February.


One price, one love, one message. A sincere and rather lovely sharing of the coffee love this February. And the perfect excuse to make Fortuna your new love affair.

See you soon

Toastie and a Tipple

For many, January is all about the ‘Ds’. Dieting, detox, decaf (eek!) and dry (the annual attempt to have an alcohol free month). Sounds a little depressing…

We jest. We get it. We love fresh, healthy produce too and our menu boasts a rather lovely selection of vegetarian dishes, delicious soups and freshly prepared smoothies. However, we believe in enjoying everything in moderation and embrace a diverse diet. That is why at Fortuna you will find us not only serving speciality coffee and the finest Edinburgh bakes & pastries but also a carefully curated wine list and beer menu to enjoy with charcuterie and our famous…toasties!

NEW Vegan Toastie – houmous, avocado, tomato & radish

Since opening, our toasties have been in high demand. Therefore, inspired by the January sales and your appetite for all things hot and melted, we are delighted to introduce our ‘Toastie & a Tipple’ offer! And with Burn’s Night fast approaching, we think the Bard himself would be tucking into this tempting treat.

All day Friday-Sunday, you can enjoy 50% off any of our toasties when ordering a glass of wine or beer!*


There’s never been a greater excuse to pause your diet, ditch the detox and banish all talk of a dry January…until Monday comes around again. 

We’re ready to provide the perfect cheat day treat, starting today! So make time to toast 2019 at Fortuna. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

*Terms and conditions apply. In order to receive 50% off the price of your toastie, you must be ordering a glass of wine or beer. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. Available all day Fri-Sun in January 2019.

Half Price Hot Drinks in December

To celebrate the opening of Fortuna Edinburgh, we’re offering 50% off all coffee, tea and hot chocolate for the rest of 2018.

We love coffee. We love its social qualities and we love living in Edinburgh. And so the idea for Fortuna was formed. Fortuna was the Roman Goddess of Fortune and personification of luck. A fitting name, as we feel incredibly lucky to have brought our dream to life on the perfect corner spot on Queen Street. it was very exciting to open our doors on Monday 10th December 2018 and finally invite people in to experience Fortuna for the first time.
