Found some space on the bar stools that run up the side of the room but were soon advised that seats up the stairs had become available. Although we were... More

Often venturing to this venue for business lunches or just a quick coffee, it always serves its purpose. Always packed and vibrant, often attracting the 'west end' type of customers.

Me and my boyfriend visited here because it caught our eye when we were wandering down Byres Road. The window has fairy lights in it which was just a lovely touch and the interior design was very clean as it was just monochrome. The customer service was good and we were greeted with glasses of water which was a nice... More

Went Saturday lunchtime with my granddaughter. All tables were taken so we waited. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Very busy but food worth waiting for. Many homemade deserts.
