Called in just before 9am much in need of a substantial breakfast. It's what I got, the large breakfast is as described but is high on quality not just quantity. Lovely sausages, bacon, giant baked beans and toast. Homemade Brian sauce is a must try. Add lovely coffee and it was such a treat. Excellent value too.

Was in the south side of Glasgow and decided that I needed my early morning coffee fix, and while I have visited Gusto & Relish next door a few times, thought I would give Tapa a chance, as I was only looking for a quick coffee on the go and like to give as many new places as possible a... More

Breakfasts and hot food are also available, the breakfast looked lovely(maybe next time!) The surprise was the range of home made breads behind the till. Of course we had... More

We dropped in to Tapa for brunch a couple of times and loved the rolls with sausage. The full breakfast looked fabulous as did the other breakfast and brunch plates. Once we've worked up enough of an appetite, we might indulge in the full breakfast. Tapa is small, fairly crowded with tables close together, great staff, and a buzz about... More

I popped in for breakfast today and had coconut porridge with lemon curd and toasted seeds and nuts, which was utterly divine. I sampled a few cakes too and they have all been so delicious, soft and fresh. My favorite is the empire biscuit,... More

I came here with my son for lunch during the week having never visited before. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Menu was great with some daily specials too. I had a chicken and bacon sandwich with the most amazing brocolli and butterbean soup, my son couldn't get enough. Coffee was also lovely. They also have lots of kids toys in... More
