Discover the Trans Europe by accident and well definitely go back some evening. Reall friendly staff, good food and a slightly quirky atmosphere that really amazed the kids.

We stumbled upon this cafe after being turned away from nearby Cafe Gandolfi (they stopped serving breakfasts 5min after we arrived)... Trans Europe was GREAT. Manager/owner was very accommodating and cheery and the food was fab.

Just behind trongate theatre there is this cosy cafe. Friendly staff and good choice of meal. Meat was great. Wine just average. Price is ok.

My friend and i went in for a coffee and a smelly old man in pyjamas and slippers, sat next to me at our table and asked what we wanted. We said we hadn't decided yet and when he got up, we left. He smelled like stale sweat and cigarettes and i don't want my server sitting next to me... More

Great food. The manager is brilliant, he has a good taste in music too. I particularly love the salvaged 1970s bus seats. Not pretentious at all, just good stuff all round.

I must have been here at least ten times and it's always a great experience. I always get a sandwich because I'm addicted to them and too scared to try anything else. The ingredients are amazing: tasty bread, homemade coleslaw and tomatoes that you can actually taste! I always get the Copenhagen, Madrid or Berlin sandwich. Those three are my... More

I like Trans-Europe for breakfast - great toast and eggs with a pot of hot tea sets you up for the day. The staff are always cheery and helpful. I like the quaint bus seats and the music can range from the velvet underground to the artic monkeys. It's got a really great feel in the mornings and Parnie Street... More

I always look forward to going to the Trans-Europe Cafe - - because I always know what i'm going to get. I'm going to get good food, good service and good music! The place is not situated in a part of Glasgow I visit frequently - - in fact, I think I am only ever in this part of town... More
