Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Justifiably treasured by sweet-toothed Southsiders as the home of a cake counter groaning with cheesecake, bakewell tarts and chewy meringues fresh from the oven, Moyra Jane’s café transforms into an informal Euro bistro come the evening. The young couples on a midweek date night and older solo clientele add to the relaxed Continental feel here, and the vast menu retains all its day-time favourites alongside a brief seasonal specials blackboard. There’s something pleasing about being able to tuck into an authentic coq au vin with a gutsy, dark gravy while your dining partner tackles a full Scottish fry-up. There’s nods to the contemporary with MJ’s Superfoods salad (artichokes, quinoa, beets and seeds) it’s the like-grandma-used-to-make mince and tatties and Loch Fyne kippers that keep the many regulars returning. They also opened another diner, MJ’s Brasserie on Seres Road in Clarkston, in spring 2016.
