Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2014 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2013 edition.

An oasis in the Cessnock food desert, Cherry and Heather is a tiny deli-cafe offering gourmet sandwiches along with vegan soups, hot and cold speciality drinks and home-baking. The menu is full of interesting and tasty combinations such as beetroot, honeyed goat’s cheese pâté and mixed seeds, or kaffir lime and lemongrass chicken with red peppers. Dishes are peppered with Southeast Asian influences such as the meatball sandwich with peanut sauce or delicious Indonesian-style chicken noodle soup. Despite the compact space, they also manage to cram in a few seats and sell a small range of goods to take away including luxury biscuits, tea, chocolate and porridge. Genuinely worth a special trip to Cessnock.

10 Sep 2009

The West End might shout louder and jangle its designer bracelets more ostentatiously, but for its many residents, the gigantic, sprawling mass of the South Side is the true heart of Glasgow. As many local historians and geographers have observed…

The absolute best sandwiches/rolls (and cakes!) I've ever tasted.

There simply isn't anything quite like this place for miles around. Well worth seeking it out for the delights within. A fantastic aray of sandwiches completely removed from the "coronation chickens" and "prawn mayo's" of the world. The only problem you'll encounter in here is what NOT to have. Also look out for great soups, changed daily, amazing cakes and lovely coffee. A lunch time essential and no mistake.

Its a small shop, but they have shown what can be done with imagination, care and a lot of hard work. A really great place to have a coffee or to get some very special sandwiches or something for lunch. When there is a queue for sandwich takeaways at lunchtime, there is not a lot of room!

Long may this initiative last, and hopefully inspire some others...what is needed now is a really good wee restaurant in this part of Paisley Road West, and of course a sensible and straight pedestrian link between Cessnock Undergrtound Station and Pacific Quay, and the BBC and Science centre.... Something that was promised years ago...
