Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2014 edition.

Owner of Guy’s Restaurant on Candleriggs, Guy Cowan has drawn on his many years catering for movie stars for his enticing café just off George Square. Classic film posters and location photos from Glasgow-shot movies, including World War Z (filmed right outside the door), adorn the bright walls and, coupled with the outlook across to the City Chambers, make the place much more hip NY deli than Glasgow tearoom. It’s geared towards the many worker bees that buzz about the area during the week with sandwiches and salad bar to go. But it’s worth settling down for a full breakfast, heartier daily special or messily enjoyable steak baguette at one of the big wooden tables or window stools to soak up the city bustle. Homemade cakes and bakes, interesting soups and good coffee add to the enticement.
