My west end coffee round up. Folk rave about paper cup. But personally I am not a fan of a cappuccino that ain't hot. You can't sit n sip and end up having to drink it too quickly. Penny black just down the road serves up a much better hot frothy coffee IMHO. Big fan of smile too. Avoid Matilda's. Nippy sweetie service with a sneer and never trust a cafe which declares its coffee to be gourmet. The west end could do with a laid back coffee house with great coffee, wifi, sofas, a pile of magazines, good tunes and a few plug points.
