This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
A genuinely inspired eatery. From the delicately displayed cupcakes to the well-lit, nicely designed interior, it projects a contemporary, taste-driven approach. Its ethical stance is no less impressive, with locally sourced veg, ethically fished tuna and the recycling of all materials. It clearly benefits from being in the playpark at the edge of Kelvingrove Park, with families flocking to sample such tempting offerings as pasta salads, ciabatta pizzas, gourmet sausage rolls, veggie burgers and an all-day breakfast with Stornoway black pudding and Ramsay sausages. The vegan veggie burgers are a particular highlight, made from a chilli which varies enough to get regulars returning weekly – full of tomato and paprika flavours, they go well with the soft, floury bun in the style of a ciabatta. Seasonal salads are also a sure bet, such as freshly made pesto and orzo pasta. A delight of great food and cooking in an idyllic setting.
