Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Another new café along the Dumbarton Road that is compact and punching above its weight in originality. From the Chinese tea ceremony – with a good quality green tea option – to the kimchi-flavoured toasties, Space is a cool coffee stop and a refreshing change from the familiar lunch options. Already popular and bustling – at lunchtimes it can be hard to find a seat – Space's limited menu is dedicated to quality, with a range of delicious cakes, chai lattes and rotating coffees making it ideal for an afternoon break. The range of loose leaf teas is rare and remarkable, and the service is warm and vigilant: there is as much attention paid to coffee as to the customers, with a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere for such a busy venue. While it provides familiar dishes – bagels, avocado – that appear across Glasgow's café scene, its clean, fresh décor make it a surprisingly calm oasis.
