Shawlands café with a good line in brunches and homemade cakes and bakes.
Another wonderful little café aimed at that generation of people who just did not get the memo from Irvine Welsh that it’s a bit rubbish being Scottish. It oozes with charm and features soups, generously piled brunches, delicious home bakes and a huge variety of coffees and black and green teas (it is good to see smoky lapsang souchong). There’s plenty of humour – the Freak Shakes are served in chemistry lab flasks and the all-day brunch menu features options such as ‘Don’t go bacon my heart’, ‘Hipster’s paradise’, ‘Meet me in St Lewis’ and the veggie ‘21st century Scotsman’. Vegans and restricted diets are all catered for with ease – the gluten-free bread is particularly good. As a mini-bonus it has one of the nicest views on Kilmarnock Road. If you are feeling a little low head here – the animal-themed salt and pepper pots alone will cheer you up.
