Local coffee, bread and bakes are joined by flowers and gifts at this cosy Partick café.
At the far end of Dumbarton Road – an area with multiplying cafés – Tulipanè has big ambitions, managing to balance the ambience of an old-school café with a more contemporary, artisan coffee feel. Their smooth roasted beans compete on a menu with more homely meals, including both fashionable toasted sourdough and more traditional baguettes. With the clientele coming from both the local area and a few from the university, a Tulipanè lunch becomes a unique and fun experience. It is, however, in the attention to detail that makes this place excel – the roll combinations are imaginative, the small stall of gifts speaks to the café's interest in quality over quantity, and the staff are exceptionally welcoming and friendly. While its location makes it slightly off the main drag of the West End, the quality of the food, coffee and service ensures that it will develop a strong customer base and encourage return visits.
