This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Set in a stylish venue with a touch of grandeur, the Grosvenor Café is a fixture for socializing along the ever-popular run of bars down Ashton lane. Originally part of the classic cinema still running downstairs, there’s a suitably luxurious feeling in the expanse, including the high ceiling with period features. Menu options aplenty suit every appetite: from à la carte to good-value small plates including a tasty Arbroath smokie fishcake. The brunch menu too is full of hunger-busters like the eggs Benedict with wild mushrooms. It’s a good bet for a table with a bit of elbow-room and from Thursday through to the weekend it buzzes from post-work rush until close. The flip side is the understandable challenge of generating atmosphere in the space but with innovative and plentiful drink promotions it’s likely that the crowd filling the seats will generate its own.

What’s it like? One big road with many little offshoots to appeal to the culture vulture in you. Where’s it, like? Off Great Western road if you hang a left at the Botanic Gardens, and just up from Partick. Take the tube to Hillhead station (soon…
