Tried here for lunch. What a lovely surprise. It is still a working church, and the building is also a Glasgow landmark, but with a modern cafe. It is truly lovely inside. Cafe serves a host of cakes, light meals and large bowls of tasty soup. It also does take away. Really nice atmosphere. It was positively buzzing when I... More

Right there on the main shopping high street in Glasgow is this beautiful church. An architectural beauty but what's more interesting is that there's a wonderful contemporary cafe inside this is in spite of it being a functional church where service is still help. Lovely sanctuary!

Peaceful venue in he heart of the shopping area. The olive tree insider is a lively cafe which has a good range of food and friendly staff. As a functional church it seems lively and contemporary but I have only heard and not attended a service. Architecturally it's a nice looking church with lot of character and details.

Found this place by accident, In here is a café called The Olive Tree which had a take away section as well. The place you sit has the altar. For meals there is a separate area with tables and chairs and a lounge chair area as well/

While in Glasgow for the day we popped in and were truly surprised by the sanctuary area of this beautiful building. A modern and very clean cafe so decided to have a quick bite to eat and were not disappointed by what was on the menu or the staffs enthusiasm. The good thing was that everything had a story and...

This is the first thing that caught my attention as I walked out of the bus at the Queens Station. The Church actually splits the street in two with a one way road on each side. The architecture is unique and beautiful with a clock on top of it. This was one the highlights of my trip and a little... More

Had a look at this building today. Has some interesting history behind it. I used it as a reference point/land mark. The building looks good during the day but even better lit up at night time

Looked interesting inside, but an activity was going on so we couldn't get in. The outside of the building is impressive.
