I visited this cosy cafe on a Saturday in December. We were in between a visit to Kelvingrove and a trip to the panto. When we entered at about 5pm there were no spare tables to fit us but very kindly a gentleman moved from a table to seat four to a smaller table. We settled in and read the... read more

Called in for a pizza to take away. I had the spicy cajun chicken pizza it was so delicious, tasty, fresh and reasonably priced! I would recommend this pizza to everyone. Servers were really friendly too! Cafe was busy every table full on a Sunday afternoon. It overlooks the art galley, lovely spot. I will be back for more pizza!

Wether you get served by the gentleman or young female be sure it will be done with a smile!!! Happy, friendly and always asking how you are getting on. Sometimes little things like that can make you want to return. The Cafe itself is situated across the road from the Kelvingrove art galleries which allows for a lovely view over... More

We popped in while in the Town Centre and what a lovely setting just a couple of light bites and drinks for 4 of us, but we were treated extremely well and had a great experience, will go back on our next trip.

Impromptu lunch with wife and 2 sons (8+6) after some free tennis at the Kelvingrove Courts. Friendly accomodating staff (made up a pizza with diffferent toppings on each half for the boys). Superb soup and ciabbata. Had cake, coffee, drinks and pleasantly suprised at bill. Will be back (soon)

Popped in here on my way to Kelvingrove. Was taken with the friendly staff who accommodated my specific salad request, even making suggestions of adding roast peppers. Got to say, it was amazing! Would highly recommend it and will definitely be back. Also a beautiful wee place to sit and enjoy some tea and cake over looking Kelvingrove art gallery.

A great little place with nice food, background music, coffee blends and friendly staff. It is easy to zone out from the busy roads even if you are actually next to some of them, the nice view makes it up for them though.

I went into this cafe for the first time this week and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was home-made and delicious. The staff were very friendly. Would definately go again soon!

This is the first thing that struck me. Big smiles made us feel very welcome. I had a delicious salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing, mozzarella cheese, peppers and the usual other salad ingredients. I was full up when I'd finished. My sister had soup with delicious toasted bread. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

Popped in for brunch while waiting for the art gallery to open. Lovely staff and great ambience and decor. The food though took a few minutes to come was wonderfully cooked and delicate on flavour. What a little gem!
