Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This Giffnock café-bistro offers a seductive menu of breakfast, lunch and brunch dishes as well as tea, coffee, cakes and a decent wine list. Owner-chef Lucy Hollen sources high-quality ingredients from independent Scottish suppliers. The simple lentil soup, nicely seasoned, comes with a generous slice of warm, crusty Italian bread from Alexander Taylor in Strathaven. Lunchtime sandwiches are presented on small boards with a mound of dressed mixed leaves. Croque with parma ham, béchamel, melted swiss, Dijon mustard, mayo and a fried egg is no light bite and will keep most people going till the evening. Brunch options include an entire hollandaise section – Benedict, Stornoway, Florentine, royale and classic – and a kedgeree fragrant with preserved lemon and fresh herbs, smoked haddock and a perfectly poached orange-yolked Corrie Mains egg. Cakes are house-made and change daily, and can include freshly baked cream doughnuts with a nut, dried banana and chocolate fudge topping.
