About us

Welcome to the Picnic Coffee Shop


Franca and Francesco opened the doors to the coffee shop in 2016 and have been working tirelessly to produce the freshest, high quality produce to our new and recurring customers ever since.


Franca and Francesco are originally from Sardinia, a small Island off the coast of Italy. With their Italian heritage combined with their extensive background in customer service and catering, you will receive a warm welcome when you step foot inside their coffee shop. 

Picnic has now expanded with a new Kiosk open at the Bridges View Point in South Queensferry. Pop along to grab your coffee on the go and take away lunch.

Our Services

We are passionate about cooking. The ingredients we use must be locally sourced, high quality and suitable to all dietary requirements. We have a range of options available for Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free and Dairy Free customers.


It isn't possible to reserve tables within the coffee shop. In the Summer months we do offer seating on the terrace, where you can soak up the atmosphere of the historic Queensferry High Street on a first come first served basis.

Our menu changes daily in the cafe, however we will always have soup and salad options as well as fresh breads and cakes available. 

We have a delicious new Vegan and Gluten Free menu available too. 

As a special treat, we put together a delicious Afternoon Tea menu. We are accepting bookings from September 2019 onwards. All bookings must be confirmed in advance to allow us time to prepare. The menu can be found here. Why not gather your friends round and book a take-away afternoon tea which you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home? 

Outside Catering is an expanding area of our business. We work with businesses to provide all of their catering requirements, whether it be for a team lunch or business meeting. All of our sandwich platters are prepared freshly and delivered in advance, straight to the venue. 

Truly Great Coffee

We specialise in truly Authentic Italian Coffee.

Our coffee is rounded, rich, and SMOOTH, with chocolatey sweetness and citrus overtones.

ORIGINS: A blend of Brazilian (Minas

Gerais) and Colombian (Medellin) Arabica,

with a touch of Indian (Kerala) Robusta

ETHICAL: We pride ourselves on the strong ethical background our coffee has.
