The Potato Shed
Angus farmers bring their crop to Central Station, serving spuds many ways, as well as quality breakfast rolls, porridge, pastries and coffee from Glasgow roaster Dear Green.
This takeaway-only unit opened in March 2017 on Central Station’s concourse, next to Platform 4, and is a natural progression from origins as a mobile catering trailer doing the rounds of events and other happenings across the country. Set up by Angus farmers based near Arbroath, the commuter-friendly menu of quick breakfasts (granola with yogurt and fruit, Scottish porridge, well-sourced Ayrshire sausage and bacon rolls) begins at an eye-watering 5.30am, with Glasgow roastery Dear Green Coffee providing a quality wake-up cup. The main star is the farm’s own potato crop, served baked with the usual suspects of cheese, beans, tuna etc, or mashed with sausage and gravy, or mince, tatties and peas. Expect menu fluctuations with the seasons’ harvests, such as Scottish berries appearing in the warmer months.
