This small, friendly restaurant is a couple of hundred yards from the Merchant City beside Glasgow Cross and easily missed. It is comfortably small and open all day. The menu isn't hugely extensive but offers breakfast type meals all day. The service is quick and friendly and the food is excellent: simple and tasty. The portions are just the right... More

Lovely place to relax with coffee or a meal, friendly staff and good selection. Have been a couple of times, the food has been good - tasty fresh salad selection and great cheese platter. Love the giant map on the wall and in the toilets! Planning on going back for dinner sometime!

First time in this restaurant on Saturday and it was fantastic...loved the decor and the old bus seats. For starters I had fish cakes absolutely delicious and main I had sea bass and mixed bean cassoulet..food was fantastic and the menu had loads of different things to choose from. Staff we're very attentive and we will definitely be back.

Looking for something that little bit different? You've got to come here...this little gem is a favourite of mine as it never fails to disappoint. Service is always served up with a laugh and a big smile, super tasty food, eclectic dinner menu and a brilliant atmosphere. Tucked away behind the Tron, seek it out, you won't be disapponted...

Popped along for a Sunday brunch and were not disappointed - arrived just as a table for two opened up, it was very busy. The atmosphere was great, loud-ish music really ads to its charm, along with the very friendly service, I think it was the owner, singing away whilst serving, very friendly. Food was delicious, as was the coffee... More

A common favourite of mine for a leisurely Sunday brunch. Small, cozy establishment with brilliant service from Tony, and a lovely tasty menu with good quality ingredients. Only good things can be said!
