The Project Café brings a community village vibe to the heart of the city, with imaginative home cooked veggie dishes at rock-bottom prices

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Sitting just off Sauchiehall Street on the slopes of Garnethill, the Project Café manages to bring a village community vibe to the middle of Glasgow's city centre. Pop in for an afternoon treat that is a million miles from the chains’ offerings that dominate the surrounding area – this is the territory of Instagram-perfect flat whites and homemade fig rolls oozing fruit. The all-vegetarian menu boasts seasonal salads such as green lentil, fig and wild rice or ginger and coconut vegan slaw, sold by the scoop at a wallet-friendly £2.50. The hot specials at just a quid more include bulgur cake with spiced cauliflower and buttery leeks – wholesome without ever descending into stodge. With the chance to pick up an independent zine, join in a community project or enjoy some creative arts at occasional events, there’s nowhere quite like the Project Café in town.
