Eating & Drinking Guide

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

City centre dwellers rejoice – Tantrum Doughnuts’ second branch is dishing out their enticing sweet treats opposite Central station. The original bakery opened in 2015 on Old Dumbarton Road, set up by husband and wife team Iain and Annika Baillie, both with backgrounds in hospitality – Iain is a pastry chef with experience at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck and Glasgow’s Ox and Finch. The clamour for their handmade, gourmet doughnuts has also warranted a separate bakery unit, as well as this second outlet. From the ever-popular crème brûlée – Madagascar vanilla bean custard, with the sugary crack of the classic dessert – to banoffee pie, mocha hazelnut and good old jam-filled, the tempting range in this funkily designed takeaway, with a handful of perches at the rear, will have adults feeling like a kid in a sweet shop again. No preservatives, so staff recommend eating within a day – no fear there.
