Contemporary café specialising in coffee, cakes and global brunches, plus pop-ups and local exhibits.
Glasgow is not short of hipster/hygge cafés serving great coffee and cakes – and Short Long Black on Victoria Road on the city’s Southside, with its original painted walls, fairy-lit beams and potted plants interiors appears at first to be another cast in the same mould. But this spot has originality in spades. In place of smashed avo on toast find instead freshly cooked crispy potato waffles with chipotle spiced beans, puréed sweetcorn, coriander – and avocado. The all-day brunch menu might be fairly simple but it’s delightful, with each dish delivered with flourishes that take it up a notch. Two variations on eggs Florentine, for instance, feature halloumi, dill and pea purée and za’atar flatbread, aged spiced butter and feta yoghurt. Coffee roasting and grinding is a speciality – but if you want an off-piste treat, try the rose-flavoured hot chocolate.
