Social Bite's Edinburgh cafe feeds Phil


Star drops by homelessness charity's cafe

Phil Rosenthal from hit Netflix show, Somebody Feed Phil, visitied Social Bite's coffee shop on Rose Street Edinburgh in the latest series which launched on Sunday (3 March).

The coffee shop, which offers customers the chance to pay it forward to help support people who are homeless or vulnerable, features on the show.

The charity has attracted a number of celebrities to its coffee shops, including Leonardo Di Caprio and George Clooney.

Members of the Social Bite team and Phil discussed the charity's mission to help end homelessness as they enjoyed a coffee and some baked goods from the shop.

Mel Swan, commercial and operations director of Social Bite, said: "Having a big star and foodie icon visit our Edinburgh coffee shop really helps share our mission with the world. We want to bring people together to end homelessness, and that can start with good food and a conversation.

"Phil really enjoyed our cakes and cookies, and hearing about what we do. We can also claim to have given him his first taste of our national drink, Irn-Bru - that's one for the books!"
