Café Life - Not just a café. We’re a cause.

Our welcoming community café is just the spot for delicious healthy food and snacks. CaféLife is open Monday-to-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.


Our bright, spacious Stockbridge community café is fully accessible and welcomes all; from the young to the, well, young-at-heart.


Every penny you spend on our hearty hot meals, scrumptious salads, brews or veg-packed smoothies helps us provide the best possible care for older people and those with dementia in Edinburgh.


Every weekday, Tony and his team rustle up delicious, nutritious meals that you can have sitting in or take away, in full or half portions – perfect for wee ones or just those with wee appetites.

Our food philosophy

LifeCare’s philosophy is all about giving everyone extra years of zest and this ethos is certainly evident in CaféLife.

We use fresh, healthy ingredients and different styles of cuisine, so you can sample something new or savour something you love.

We’re here to provide affordable, nutritious meals for the entire community.
