The coffee is very good here. The cakes are lovely. The savoury menu provides a good choice of tasty lunch items. They do 'bread and butter' breakfast stuff (like bacon butties). BUT It is simply understaffed. Particularly at lunch times, the waitresses are completely over run and so when you look around, you see lots of slightly agitated and exasperated... More

Hi Westendie Thanks for your rating of 'very good' on Tripadvisor. We're glad you're enjoying the coffee and cakes that we have to offer. Yes, we have been experiencing busier lunchtimes during the week recently and are experimenting with shift patterns to accommodate this. Thanks again for your feedback - hope to see you again soon.

Walked into the cafe, asked for a table of 3 and were pointed upstairs. After about 10 minutes of waiting I decided to go downstairs and ask one of the waitresses for some coffee's and she stared at me like I was an alien. We waited even longer for the coffee (which was actually very nice!). After which we go... More

Hi Laura Firstly, thanks very much for leaving us feedback. I'm really sorry you thought we were poor on the occasion you visited. We're susceptible to making mistakes, as all businesses are, and we're really keen to make sure we don't make the same ones twice.

This place does get good reviews. The food is nice and slightly different and the service is good tho not outstanding. I had a wee problem with an item which was nothing big in ant way and was submitted to a very arrogant response from someone who seemed to be a part of the management. He seemed to think that...

While I genuinely believe that none of our staff members would have intentionally tried to humiliate you, I'd like to address this problem properly. With that in mind it would be helpful if... More

Great find on a cold May afternoon. Excellent attentive service but not over the top. Very accommodating.

Absolutely amazing coffee with lots of choices. They also offer a discount card so you can eventually get a free one! :-) They offer gluten-free bread and are very accomodating in changing menu to suit!

Avenue G is located in the hustle and bustle at the top end of Byres Road and on a sunny day you can sit out on the pavement watching the world go by. The service is great - friendly, attentive and quick. The coffee is possibly the best in the west end of Glasgow. The cakes are incredible and there's... More

My son discovered this place when he was at Uni and realised here was somewhere you can get a coffee of the quality you can in Italy - not easy these days. So many places scald their coffee, this place doesn't, excellent coffee! They bring you a glass of water as soon as you sit down which is a nice... More
