The actor drew a large crowd of onlookers and reporters as he arrived in a chauffeur-driven car at the establishment, which employs and feeds the homeless.
Clooney praised the project and told reporters: "I think the idea that we can all participate in everyone's difficulties is really important."
Inside, the star handed over a five pound note to buy a small meal or two for the needy, and sampled a sandwich himself. He was invited to the cafe by its co-founder Josh Littlejohn, who also set up the Scottish Business Awards, which the actor will attend later Thursday.
