Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Roaster’s relocation from their original home in Partick's subway station to the city centre seems to have had the desired impact, with the new premises feeling less like a café while also allowing room for a more expansive menu. The fundamentals from the original have been successfully imparted to the new incarnation with impressive portion sizes and a plethora of choice for meat lovers. There’s an extensive all-day breakfast menu, the most popular item of which is the made-to-order buttermilk pancakes with stacks of toppings, from maple syrup and bacon to fruit, nutella and a heart-stopping option stuffed with Oreo cookies, smothered in choclate sauce. There’s also a nice selection of burgers, hot dogs and filled sandwiches – the signature being a pastrami and rye, which bears the hallmarks of the iconic version from Katz’s Delicatessen in New York.
