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 current (2016) edition.

Nic’s NYC Deli is part of a chain of three Glasgow-wide cafés with the same name (the old Crêpe à Croissant premises), but you wouldn’t know it from venturing inside one. Which is a pity, because a lot of hard work evidently goes on behind the scenes with Nic herself prepared to muck in frying and decorating freshly made donuts. From the playful menus to the grunge-inspired décor, this café fully embraces the indulgence of New York City street food. It’s all there – the Heart Stopper sandwich, the pancake stacks slathered in syrup, and something called the Threesome, a decadent sweet sandwich. Despite the latter’s saucy name, Nic’s NYC Deli is a child-friendly place open until late with treats designed to put smiles on their faces such as happy hippo topped donuts. All good fun – the owner should take some credit for it.
