A chic artisan Italiano coffee shop just a few short steps from Partick subway – ideal for breakfast, lunch or evening dawdling.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Perched on the corner of Dumbarton Road and Vine Street this buzzing little venue is well placed to catch shoppers and Partick Subway travellers. A light and airy artisan spot, it has a streetwise hipster vibe with its natural wood shelving, stripped grey brick walls, comfortable booths and a line of high chairs along the massive windows. A large menu spreads above the serving area announcing a broad selection of hand-crafted coffees, cold drinks, smoothies and a rich, malty leaf tea served with a dinky egg timer to help get the brew just right. Breakfast favourites include porridge, crêpes and pastries, while lunchtime offers sandwiches, paninis, focaccia and bakes including a splendid authentic-tasting tiramisù with springy coffee-tinged sponge topped with lightly whipped mascarpone. The owners are hoping to recreate their success elsewhere in the city with talk of a small chain in the offing.
