EH9 Espresso

Wednesday 22 February 2023

EH9 Espresso is Dundee’s most colourful coffee shop. Open since June 2021, it’s on the newer side, but fast becoming a favourite with my friends. I thought I’d better get it up on Wee Dundee so popped in with my camera and here we are.

“EH9 is like a playgroup for adults. It’s quite a simple idea: Speciality Coffee, Bakes and Good People. That’s what we’re about.” - can’t argue with that. I am a big fan of this cute coffee shop’s aesthetic, it’s lovely to see such a cheerful lilac exterior alongside other independents on the Perth Road.

Whenever we visit we’re always greeted by the friendliest team of baristas and it just has the nicest vibes. I actually ended up taking these pics over two visits as I was there twice in one week - once for a sort of meeting and the other for a Sunday morning coffee with our dog (dog friendly bonus!).

My go-to is the oat chai latte for sure, such a good chai blend. The coffee is fab too, obviously, but I can't handle too much caffeine. Though there aren’t a lot of food options they still cater to vegans - the cinnamon scrolls are so delicious or you can opt for a vegan danish pastry. If you’re in the mood for something savoury there’s a Bross vegan bagel - The Betsy - with hummus and veggies.

I love the shelves decorated with plants, and filled with bits and pieces you can buy - how gorgeous are those filter coffee machines! They also have their own merch in the form of cool graphic tees.

If you’re looking for a chill place to get a caffeine boost this is the coffee shop for you. Also keep an eye on their socials for upcoming events as they recently had a latte art throw down which looked like a lot of fun!
