This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
With Byres Road not exactly lacking trendy cafés, it’s an enterprising newcomer that thrives there, and Avenue G has proven itself just that since 2011. Bringing a little New York coffee chic to the West End’s main artery, it’s the kind of place where they treat coffee-making like an art form, and want you to know your barista by name. They’re just as serious about food too – the sandwiches (which you can get whole or halved with fresh soup) are all made fresh to order, optionally on gluten-free bread, in variants from wild roast venison to Loch Duart hot smoked salmon.

For something sweet see the cabinet of temptation – full of freshly baked tarts, pies, muffins and brownies which taste as good as they look.
