I have eaten here regularly with friends and find that it consistently maintains a very high standard. The staff are lovely, the food is great, and the prices are fantastic. Your only problem will be getting a seat as it is becoming so popular with locals! 5/5.

One of the best cappuccinos I've had, excellent aswell as the apple and chocolate flan I had with it. The cafe itself is narrow and small, but with a big friendly atmosphere. With the friendly staff chatting away in Italian in the open plan kitchen to the rear and the radio on low, I felt as if I'd been transported... More

This place is always consistently good - friendly staff and the food is out the world! Delicious and fresh with a French/Spanish twist - if your ever in the Westend take a short walk up Queen Margaret Drive and you'll find this hidden gem

This summer we spent a week in glasgow and were very close to this small cafe. The staff is amazing, friendly and made each and every visit homely and welcome. Coffee is great - just what we needed to kickstart the day.
