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