The West End coffee haven once known as Avenue G, now Avenue Coffee, is renowned for its lovingly prepared locally sourced dishes.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Following the opening of their original Byres Road unit in 2011 under the name Avenue G, the rebranded Avenue Coffee was extremely quick in becoming a West End favourite for a commitment to solid Scottish sourcing, great coffee and convivilaity. Now with a new menu launched in March 2016, they seem set to raise their profile even higher. The ethos and inspiration behind the dishes remains the same, but the café now offers a refined version of their old menu – keeping the excellent breakfast offerings – with the addition of delicately balanced salads, and an exciting range of specials that includes plates such as a vegan bean burger and a BBQ pulled pork burger. Despite their rebranding however, the elements of the café that aided its rise to popularity remain the same – friendly staff, great cooking, and truly excellent coffee.
