Great Café, Nice Vibe, Great Food & Attentive Staff

Love popping into this buzzy little café whenever we're over on the Southside. Latte's are always made just how I like them & they also serve soy milk for my daughter's hot chocolate. Had the mozzarella, tomato & basil pesto sandwich on Italian bread which was really delish & chunky wedgie chips... read more

Ate here on Friday 27th and had yet again a superb meal... Lamb burger my favourite dish is as always awesome !! My partner had her favourite chicken and chorizo salad and loved it once again. Nice cheeky Merlot and Rose went well with the meal. We shared the very tasty Rubarb and custard sponge dessert to finish. Delish. Service... More

Eat Cafe has always been that one place that I would seek to go to for a fantastic meal/service and overall atmosphere. It's a little cafe that offers so much and never disappoints. it is definitely good value for money too, as everything we have ever had has been of impeccable quality. Keep it up!

In for lunch today. Great wee place and not to be missed if you are in the Shawlands area. Outstanding food and full compliments to the staff and in particular the 2 working in the kitchen today because not only was my food very fresh and tasty but after seeing the food that was also coming out to other tables...

huge thanks from the eat cafe team. Such positive feedback makes it all worthwhile .... And its refreshing to have someone take time to write a positive review, rather than those who only use trip advisor for negative feedback. Many thanks & hope you enjoy working your way through the menu ! More

I may even go as far to say that this place serves the best food in Glasgow. Ok, maybe not but every time I've been I've left and not faulted a single thing. Something simple like the baked ham and cheese focaccia turns into much more than a sandwich. Generous pieces of ham in tasty toasted focaccia with rosemary. Nice... More

Came in for some lunch last week and the choice was excellent. The portion sizes are good and had a varied cake selection. We shared a mezze platter to start, I had the spinach and ricotta ravioli and my friend had the king prawn linguine. Very tasty, the only thing is it took us a while to be served as... More

Three of us had various pasta dishes for lunch. We decided to order the small as opposed to large size. Well small was the operative word! There were only three little pieces of ravioli with six half cherry tomatoes swimming in a cheesy soup. You might have got away with it had there been a bit of garlic bread on... More

Apologies first of all that you felt your meal was overpriced. This is not feedback we commonly receive - customers are usually more than happy with portions & prices. the ravioli, for instance, is always 5 pieces in a small portion, which people find filling & of good value. . I am confident your portion was of the same size,... More

I recently moved to Shawlands and have been here more than any other place in the area. The food is always fantastic - especially anything on the special menu. Would recommend for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and all of the above.

Excellent friendly service, lovely food and wine. Love the layout of the place, being to smell what's being cooked and being able to see the chefs cooking. Keep up the good work guys. X Richard and Melanie
