My wife had a latte and thought it so good she had a second. The food was great and the staff friendly. Worth making an effort to go to.

While I love my Starbucks and Pret, this place takes it up a notch with better quality baked goods and coffee roasts. Loved the vibe from the upstairs balcony.

Came in to Avenue Coffee for breakfast last week on a trip to Glasgow. I had smashed avocado on toast and it was delicious. They cater well to vegans, a nice little coffee shop!

Nice coffee and friendly staff. The cakes were awful - really dry as if they had been lying out for a long time.

Just by looking at the outside you know Avenue Coffee won't disappoint. Stopped off for lunch. The staff were very friendly. Our food was very good but it was the coffee which was the stand out. We had to have a second cup.

Lovely little coffee shop in Glasgow's West End. The coffee itself is lovely and there is a fabulous range of cakes and snacks. We had to try the scones because they looked lovely and had them toasted. A new experience we are sure to repeat.
