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

I visit the Tramway Cafe regularly but was so disappointed to encounter such a rude manager during my recent visit. I heard her being snappy and rude to customers. I could hear her telling' off a group of mums that were in for coffee for where their prams were...something about blocking a delivery route and then she came back and... More

We visit Tramway often and while the venue and gardens are impressive and a great way to spend a sunny day, the café is a little disappointing. The food varies in quality: sometimes they have delicious risottos, and a good range of homemade sweet treats. However, service is incredibly slow and the food is not good value for money. On...

We first visited the Tramway in 1988 to see its inaugural production, Peter Brooke's Mahabharata. This production was so successful, and the location so ideal for modern theatre, that the decision was made to convert the venue into a 'permanent' theatre. Thank heavens! It was not until 2004 that we returned. The Hidden Gardens had been established the previous year.... More
