Popped in for a speedy lunch, having been tempted by the gorgeous cake display & quirky look. Had delicious homemade soup and my OH had a ciabatta. We took a slice of banana, almond & polenta cake away. All the food was excellent & the atmosphere was great. Loved being able to sit on comfy sofas. Funky leopard-print loo, too!

Had popped into this little place for a quick bite during lunch hour with a friend. We both ordered baguettes from the menu – mine the humus and roast pepper, while my friend opted for the chicken, bacon and avocado. The smells of coffee and sweet treats and the outside seating on this gorgeous day had assured me we had... More

Place is tiny, cute, and smells great. Beautiful selection of baked goods, but also soup, sandwiches, salads.

Great little cafe that offers great pastries. The coffee is decent but the fact that the pastries are made in house and not purchased from costcos like most other places makes this the best coffee shop on Sauchiehall street.

I've been in here many times for both a proper lunch and just for a cake and tea. The food (not including cakes) is of average quality, with the presentation being pretty basic but tasting good enough. I've had toasties / paninis here, they were ok but nothing to shout about. This place is best for relaxing with a nice... More

Having been tempted by the sumptuous array of home baking in the window for a couple of months, today I finally succumbed to a meringue and a pot of tea, Vanilla Black style. My first obstacle to a relaxing hedonistic lunch was finding out that they only take cash, cue a mad dash across rainy Sauchiehall St to an atm,... More

I went today and had a lovely pot of tea and a scone. Bargain price and delicious strawberry jam.If I could I would have eaten my way through every single cake on display,they looked lush and were not bought in.The only thing that was a bit testing was the French chansons, but that s just my taste! I ll go... More
