The BFM visited Tramway and was totally amazed!! 25 Albert Drive Glasgow G41 2PE United Kingdom http://www.tramway.org 0845 330 3501 It started as Caplawhill tramshed in 1893 before becoming a Tram and bus depot. During the war aircraft wings were manufactured and in 1964 it opened as The Transport Museum. From the early 1990's til now it has became an... More

This cafe seems to be popular with the local Yummy Mummies and local schoolchildren. The menu is vegetarian/vegan with a good choice of sandwiches and two soups of the day. Views of the Secret Garden add to the attractions. The staff were extremely pleasant and even had time to chat. I had a lovely two cheese toasted sandwich, a small... More

I had lunch at the Tramway cafe with my husband, toddler and in-laws in August 2014 and it was a great find. The menu was exclusively vegetarian and was pretty good for lunch with two different soups of the day, as well as a range of sandwiches and salads. There was also a small kids menu with a choice of cheese... More

Goodness I have revisited the tramway cafe a few times recently since posting a poor review about them some months back when I felt the manager was rude but now I feel the staff (including the manager) are very pleasant...! Maybe I got her on a bad day... Or whatever it was its lovely to feel welcome!

Tramway offers all kinds of different cultural experiences. This time it was an art exhibition which included 2 sculptures by Mick Peter. These sculptures were in the garden area where they looked excellent. The garden itself has been extremely well laid out and the cafe offers delicious inexpensive food.

Our party of four went to see the excellent Grit, the Martyn Bennett life story tribute. We had planned to eat beforehand having checked the cafe menu on the website. The choice was limited but looked good. The ordering process was chaotic. I asked for a cheddar cheese sandwich and they had run out of Cheddar. I opted for Mozzarella... More

Popped in here for a quick coffee and had one of the best scones ever. Overlooking The Hidden Gardens, it's a little oasis of tranquility in the city.

The café in Glasgow Tramway is expensive, and the clientele includes lots of toddlers but... it is tasty, and I supose, value for money! However the performance venue itself is astounding! An amazing space with often amazing productions. Check out their youth theatre company and when they are performing, Junction 25. They are fantastic. There's always something for someone here!

Was very impressed by the helpful, cheerful service I received along with my lovely cappucino. It's a really nice space for a bite to eat or a chat, and I got a good few hours work done there. The staff are absolutely fantastic!

Have visited Tramway a few times but after today I won't return. The cafe is lovely but it's spolied hugely by the amount of pre school children running riot. I've no problem with kids in dining areas and I realise that it's not always easy or possible to have them still for more than 5 minutes. What I encountered was... More
