Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2015/16 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2015) edition.

Cherry and Heather have an understandably great reputation and are still providing a tempting and unusual take on café culture. Asian noodle dishes, gluten-free baking, deli pasta dishes and sandwiches all feature on a diverse menu, while the cosy four-table dining space manages to feel spacious and bright. Bitesize cakes are delectable and small enough to go guilt-free – cherry brownies are dense, sticky and with a sugary outer layer, and a delicious custard berry slice is stuffed with sharp fruit and topped with berry-topped clotted cream. A laksa alam chicken noodle dish is a glorious fusion of red chillis, sundried tomatoes and coconut. There's a great selection of teas, too. A splendid spot in a neighbourhood scarce on cafés, whether for takeaway, relaxing or working.

  • High point: Flavoursome noodle soups
  • Low point: Noodles could be more substantial

10 Sep 2009

The West End might shout louder and jangle its designer bracelets more ostentatiously, but for its many residents, the gigantic, sprawling mass of the South Side is the true heart of Glasgow. As many local historians and geographers have observed…

The absolute best sandwiches/rolls (and cakes!) I've ever tasted.

There simply isn't anything quite like this place for miles around. Well worth seeking it out for the delights within. A fantastic aray of sandwiches completely removed from the "coronation chickens" and "prawn mayo's" of the world. The only problem you'll encounter in here is what NOT to have. Also look out for great soups, changed daily, amazing cakes and lovely coffee. A lunch time essential and no mistake.

Its a small shop, but they have shown what can be done with imagination, care and a lot of hard work. A really great place to have a coffee or to get some very special sandwiches or something for lunch. When there is a queue for sandwich takeaways at lunchtime, there is not a lot of room!

Long may this initiative last, and hopefully inspire some others...what is needed now is a really good wee restaurant in this part of Paisley Road West, and of course a sensible and straight pedestrian link between Cessnock Undergrtound Station and Pacific Quay, and the BBC and Science centre.... Something that was promised years ago...
