Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Soon to celebrate ten years, but feeling every bit like a much more venerable Glasgow café, Trans-Europe café offers an appealingly quirky, Euro-tinged vibe, with a heavy travel theme (bus seats, map décor, sandwiches named after continental cities) and a good line in sustenance. On offer from the semi-open kitchen are breakfast and brunch options and lunches, mainly sandwich-based options including burgers and steak, although there are salads too, which tend to offer the sandwich fillings without the bread and with extra greenery.
