An affectionately viewed staple of the West End’s takeaway scene for over a decade and renowned for its grilled ciabattas and paninis, Il Cappuccino is often queued down the street during weekday lunchtimes. As such, the service is friendly but efficient, with a variety of cakes and tuck shop treats filling the counters. To enjoy Il Cappuccino at its finest moment, grab a Dan’s Special (a toasted ciabatta packed with peppered ham, optional spicy mayo, fresh tomatoes and cheddar) and a pleasantly sweet chai latte, and head to Kelvingrove Park on a sunny day. Bliss.
