The Forest is a non-profit collective and was established initially as a Fringe venue at the 2000 Festival and its vegetarian cafe funds a diversity of arts-related activities. The cafe is volunteer-run, the food is simple, the style home-made and casual and there is often open music and theatre. Children are welcome.
The Forest Cafe had to close in October 2011 because their landlord (Edinburgh University Settlement) went bankrupt. After a successful campaign to Save The Forest, the cafe re-opened in Tollcross on Friday 10 August 2012.
