Eating & Drinking Guide

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

If you like your coffee like you like your fighting bulls – strong and black – then you are in for a treat at Toro near Pollok Park. Its USP is a flight of coffees: a double espresso, a pretty and fluffy double-shot latte and a glass of three-shot filter – yeah baby, that's seven! Featured coffee includes a range of indie roasters, including Glasgow’s own the Good Coffee Cartel. A recent selection included the Narco Blend (Colombia meets Ethiopia) in both the espresso and latte, and an Ethiopian Koke as the filter. The citrusy burst of the Narco espresso is tempered in the cleansing comfort of the latte, while a sip of hot filter transports you to East Africa, soft fruit emerging as it cools. Toro is a carefully curated space created by photographer and co-owner Ross Walker, and there are plenty of toasts (Freedom Bakery) and bakes (Amo Torta) to go with the black stuff. And you can bring the dog.
