Intimate, stylish café-bistro in fashionable Finnieston, serving local produce with international flare.
With vintage paintings and mid-century mirrors adorning exposed brickwork, the Scullery’s timber-floored interior fits right into the Finnieston hipster vibe. Yet there’s as much substance as style here, and from interesting cocktails to satisfying puds, the food and drink strikes a balance between comforting and clever. A subtle Scottish theme sees Shetland mussels, Ayrshire beef and venison sausages get star billing on an appealing evening menu, while an inventive Cullen skink croquette concentrates the flavours of smoked haddock soup into a velvety, crunchy deep-fried lozenge, served with a soft-poached egg as a substantial starter. It’s not all about Scotland, however, with curry flavours, bocconcini mozzarella and Thai broth lightening things up here and there. Brunch (from 10.30am) includes the likes of eggs Benedict and Florentine or a full Scottish, giving way to NY deli-style sandwiches and à la carte from about noon. Bigger inside than it looks from the street, the Scullery even manages to squeeze in a 30-seat private dining room in the basement.

Finnieston’s latest opener is every bit as hip-looking as the numerous newish spots up and down the road, with an attractive, crisp and modern interior with big windows and period detailings, all done up in wood and brick. Time-served Ubiquitous Chip…
