Anniesland café and contemporary bakery, with occasional weekend evening menus, and consideration for special dieters.
Although situated just off Anniesland Cross, Beefcake captures a gentle, intimate atmosphere and has already developed a coterie of local regulars. Despite being a bustling lunchtime location, the staff are affable and willing to spend a little extra time to make sure that the customers can make a good selection from the diverse, and often changing, menu. The chef excels in bringing the telling detail to the simplest of dishes – the homemade sourdough toast and the granola with Greek yoghurt are exceptional, while the heartier dishes, especially the shakshuka eggs, showcase the delicious vegetables, cooked to perfection. While the cake range is limited, Beefcake concentrates on the quality – the cinnamon and orange bun is a rare treat – and the coffee can compete with the more dedicated outlets for smoothness and sweetness. The soups are rich and creamy, bringing a freshness to old favourites and the generous portions make it both a good brunch choice and a candidate for lazy afternoons of cakes and teas.
