Kember & Jones Fine Food Emporium

Undisputedly one of of Glasgow’s best cafés, who grind their own coffee, and bake their own exceptionally good bread and cakes.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The rustic wooden interior and homely smell of fresh baking at Kember & Jones makes it feel more like a farmhouse bakery than a busy Byres Road spot. The menu is considered and varied, with salads, such as the beautifully balanced goat’s cheese with sun-blushed tomatoes and pine nuts, and sandwiches, including the tangy and vibrant crab and cucumber, sitting alongside a selection of platters, hot specials and the recent addition of an all-day breakfast. Through years spent establishing an ethos of quality cooking, the café is now renowned for the high standard of its dishes, particularly its breads, many of which are on display and draw in hungry shoppers from the other side of the glass frontage, and cakes which come creatively baked and generously sliced, with the white chocolate, raspberry and pistachio proving a deliciously sweet highlight.

  • High point: Brilliant baking
  • Low point: Prone to getting very busy
  • Notable dish: All day breakfast/hot specials
  • Average price: £13.50 (lunch); £13.50 (dinner)
