Down to Earth
Healthy breakfasts and lunches – with lots for special dieters – plus plenty of juices and smoothies, for sit-in or takeaway.
Opened originally a couple of years ago before a year-long mothball, this health-minded café is back with all-new management and menu – and a new billing as a ‘flexitarian kitchen’, not the old ‘organic kitchen’. It’s in the right place. Despite Partick’s recent rise in the food districts of note in town, it could still do with a shot in the arm of the natural goodness offered here. The nicely designed and slickly branded spot offers breakfast and all-day menus, with helpful icons for the many dishes that are vegan, veggie, gluten-free or contain oily fish. For brekkie there are various fry-ups that go easy on the fry aspect, as well as eggs many ways, bowls of suped-up porridge and toasted sourdough from local Bavarian Bakehouse. Mightier mains include various meat-free burgers, meaty curries, and, of course, mac and cheese. Juices and smoothies are fresh and enticing – much like this wholesome (re)addition to the Partick scene.
