Eating & Drinking Guide

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

This corner spot on Woodlands Road has been home to a number of cafés but the current incarnation seems to have found its groove as a great little West End student hangout – ideal as it looks out onto Glasgow University buildings across the street. The friendly, family-run establishment has a fairly limited (though clientele-appropriate) menu. The servings are generous and prices very reasonable for the area. Hearty breakfasts are popular, particularly on a Saturday morning as are the soup, sandwiches served with nachos and salad at lunchtime. But a big draw is the coffee along with homemade bakes such as the perennial Glasgow favourite: the Empire biscuit. There is also a cosy additional upstairs area offering extra inter-lecture chilling and reading space on more comfy seating.
