This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
The transport museum may, by its nature, be full of relics of the past but the future looks bright in the café with its spaciousness and unique view along the Clyde being major draws. The extensive menu boasts some refreshing additions to standard attraction café food too. Apart from the obligatory soups (which do include the spicy and not unspectacular Moroccan chicken) and sandwiches (on a choice of six breads), there are pies, salads and half a dozen main dishes to choose from. The vegetable and goat's cheese lasagne lacks a little of the depth of flavour of the carnivore version but is a lighter alternative as a result. With a children's menu and also clear information about suitable choices for vegetarians and those with gluten and nut allergies, it's no mystery why the place is popular with locals and tourists alike. The only question is why a busy café can sometimes seem empty of servers.
