The closure has been confirmed by Costa, who advises locals that they will still have another branch nearby.
A spokesperson told The Sun: “We can confirm that our Costa Coffee store on Bruntsfield Place will close its doors for trade on the 14th of February 2024.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
“Customers can continue to enjoy their favourite Costa coffee at our nearby store on Morningside Road.”
Locals have taken to social media to react to the closure of the coffee shop.
One person said: “God almighty so many businesses losing in Edinburgh, the council needs to fix the rates so this doesn’t keep happening.”
Another added: “Bit of a shame, we like Costa and it’s always busy when we’ve been there.”
While some others were not so disappointed about the closure and saw it as a positive move for other independent coffee shops.
“We have too many coffee chains in this city! Let the independent businesses thrive again”, one added.
While another said: “Means more business for independent cafes.”
Other Costa closures
The coffee chain has already shut the doors on quite a few locations this year.
Costa says that it regularly reviews its store estate across the UK to ensure it is right for its communities and teams.
This could be a combination of closing stores, renovation or the opening of new locations.
The following sites have already closed this year, but a couple will be returning to their local areas.
One of the chain’s shops closed in July but has since reopened further down the road.
The coffee giant closed the doors on its Lowestoft location in July, but this was for a re-vamp.
It is set to open with a whole new look interior and will also have a drive-thru.

This comes as more banks look to move their services online.
