Actor George Clooney continued to show why he is Hollywood's number one leading man when he made a stop at a Scottish cafe that helps feed the homeless, TIME reports.

Dozens of excited fans turned out to see the actor grab a bite at the Edinburgh sandwich shop Social Bite Cafe, which donates all of its profits to charity, employs formerly homeless people, and allows customers to purchase paid-out meals to give to the homeless, according to the Guardian.

"I like what they're doing. I think it is an important cause." Clooney said. "I think that we can all participate in everyone's difficulties is really important."

Aside from bringing publicity to the cafe, Clooney also donated $1,000 and ordered an avocado pesto and pepper wrap.

The actor was invited to come to Scotland by the cafe's co-founder Josh Littlejohn, the Guardian reports.

"We know that George is a really committed humanitarian," Littlejohn said. "He has his own charity in Sudan, so we reached out to that charity and invited him over to Scotland. We said we would help fundraise for his charity and invited him to our Social Bite Cafe, and to our delight he accepted."

Littlejohn also established the Scottish Business Awards, where Clooney will address 2,000 people Thursday night.

All the proceeds from the event will go to the Social Bite Fund and Not On Our Watch charity. Not On Our Watch is co-founded by Clooney and fellow actors Matt Damon and Brad Pitt, the Guardian reports.
