Policebox coffee shop

This coffee takaway at the top of Leith Walk, infront of St Mary’s RC Cathedral, is an old converted policebox, many of which are dotted around Edinburgh.

Perfectly positioned this small box would once of been home to policemen guarding the road up to Edinburgh’s East End. Now it supplies coffee to the city’s many workers.

This is my second policebox sketch, the first from the Royal Mile which you can see here: https://edinburghsketcher.com/?p=538
