Eat Café

Southside café-bistro offering friendly service and cosy neighbourhood dining with menus to suit any time of day.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

This Southside venue has successfully blended coffee culture with cosy neighbourhood dining, thanks to the friendly staff and menus that cover breakfast through to evening meals. Large windows with views on to bustling Kilmarnock Road give an airy feel and allow that most enjoyable of pastimes, people-watching – which can only be enhanced with a treat from the counter, which is laden with tempting home-baking. If something more filling than tea and cake is required, there is plenty of choice on the main menu, which focuses on using organic, free-range produce. A hearty smoked fish chowder is creamy and full of potato and delicate smoked fish, while the king prawns are firm, flavoursome and smothered in a delicate coconut cream. For mains, an enormous portion of haddock risotto, accompanied by a soft poached egg and black pudding is extra filling, while the chicken and squash tagine from the daily specials is gently spiced, colourful and adorned with glistening pomegranate seeds. With such extensive menus, Eat Café has something for every hungry moment.

  • High point: Commitment to using organic, free-range produce

Table Talk: Kathryn Hamilton Knight on the Southside Scene

16 Sep 2015

Glasgow’s eat café and eat deli's co-director talks about diners and the local food and drink scene

In early 2000 when we moved to the Southside, the food scene seemed to be trailing behind its West End or city centre neighbours. As we were in the trade, we wanted to fill that gap in the market. So, in 2002, eat deli opened and was enthusiastically…
