The Project Café brings a community village vibe to the heart of the city, with imaginative home cooked vegetarian dishes at very reasonable prices
The Project Café, which sits on the crest of the City Centre just as Cowcaddens and Garnethill begin, is a shining example of the Community Interest Company model that’s becoming increasingly prominent across both Glasgow and Edinburgh. All profits here go towards a named social enterprise, which in this case means funding a packed events programme that runs almost nightly, with diversity and accessibillity for all at its core. Owner Eilidh Mackay is well aware that the best café possible means the best possible standard in the evenings. A concise range of ever-changing vegetarian dishes is available, that put locally and carefully sourced produce through a Middle Eastern sphere. Expect delights such as a hearty salad of hazelnuts, parsnips, apple and tender stem broccoli, or an Afghani flatbread stuffed with beans and pulses. Close to the Glasgow School of Art, the atmosphere is understandably artsy, and cheerful, and most welcoming to all who pass through.
The Project Cafe is a social enterprise aiming to bring people together through good food. The cafe makes best use of the produce that Scotland offers seasonally through creative and beautiful vegetarian salads, soups and specials made using Organic ingredients. Wholesome cakes and Fairtrade Organic coffee can be enjoyed in a warm and welcoming space, or outside in the garden terrace. The space is available to community groups for projects, meetings, workshops and exhibitions.
