Glasgow’s first paleo cafe, with an appealing menu where even pancakes are a healthy choice.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Genuinely exciting healthy food and juices, with a promising concept cooked up by two fitness fanatics, Prep’s mission is to provide healthy choices for those on the go – and having already adjusted opening times to provide for morning workouts, they clearly know their clientele. From menus that tell you the protein content of your meal to paleo favourites such as sweet potatoes and egg-white omelettes, there is a clear focus throughout on food as fuel. That said, one of the nicest things about Prep Kitchen is that it isn’t elitist; not everyone eating here is a bodybuilder or athlete – even though they might be enjoying a fresh juice such as 50 Shades of Green with avocado, kale, spinach, apple and ginger. For a substantial meal, tuck into champion choices such as smashed avocado and poached eggs on sourdough and protein pancakes for the indulgent side of healthy eating.
