Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Glasgow had a good reputation for its vegan dining scene a few years ago – and that was before the swell of new openings that have ditched the animal derivatives for a plant-based offering. Serenity Now joined the growing vegan offerings in the city recently, with lots of nods to American TV show Seinfeld (‘The Serenity Now’ being the 159th episode). It’s a bright spot most days thanks to huge windows and a pale interior, with splashes of soft pink and green, murals of plants by the tables. The menu runs from breakfasts (avocado on sourdough toast, pancakes, full numbers with homemade sausage, etc) to sandwiches and bigger mains like mac and cheese or a chilli bowl. Sandwiches include meat-substitutes, such as the ‘deli meat’ in the There Won’t Be Blood version. There’s a healthy focus, too, with ‘wellness lattes’ including turmeric, matcha and chai versions, plus smoothies name-checking more Seinfeld episodes. Less healthy but enjoyable are the bakes and cakes – although welcomed dogs can enjoy some wholesome vegan options.
