Small and cosy, the St Louis Café Bar is a welcome stop at any time on the fairly drab-looking Broomhill end of Dumbarton Road, proving a great place for a relaxing pint of craft beer, tea and cake or a substantial meal. A popular evening venue, which boasts live music at weekends and a quiz on Tuesdays, it’s also ideal for lazy Sunday mornings reading the newspapers and an all-day breakfast available from 9am to 5pm. On offer is fruit and nut granola with yoghurt and compote, belly-busting fry-ups and veggie haggis, poached eggs and spinach on an English muffin. The smokin’ burger is a highlight of the evening menu, loaded with smoked cheddar, jalapeños, pickled gherkins and salad. Other diner-style options available include nachos and St Louis gumbo made with vegetables or chicken and chorizo. Those craving a snack can nibble on falafels with tzatziki and pitta or bruschetta with goat’s cheese and red onion chutney. Decent prices plus friendly and helpful staff make this a lovely place to waste a few hours, and dogs are also welcome.
