Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

The locals in Pollokshields are very lucky to have this café/deli on their doorstep. It’s the ideal place to visit when faced with an empty fridge. Bright airy clean space with a reassuringly small menu, given the size of the room. The simple starters include home-made soup, smoked salmon and a delicious tart of the day. There’s also a good warm goat's cheese salad and classic bresaola with rocket and parmesan. Mains include a heart-warmingly good lasagne, and an equally gratifying beef chilli, although it's lacking a real kick. The warm black pudding, poached egg and bacon salad sits alongside classics like caesar salad and a club sandwich. Desserts are all home-made and include a great, chewy-in-the-middle meringue and, although ubiquitous these days, an above-average sticky toffee pudding.

Oh, and they serve tablet with great coffee to finish.
