Pekoe Tea Tollcross (4♥) has a sister shop in Stockbridge and is a similarly nice place to relax and watch the world go by.
Tea is clearly their specialty but they also do a very nice coffee using Glasgow-based roaster Dear Green. The tea choices are enormous to have in or in bags to take home. They've got quite a bit of equipment for brewing both tea and coffee (non-espresso) and the staff are knowledgeable.
The shop fronts on to a busy part of Edinburgh and it's nice take time out to sit at the front window or further back in the shop at tables and chairs.
There's small choice of sweet cakey, biscuity type things available to have with your chosen beverage.
