I've been to this cafe a few times and always had a nice experience - they have good food and drinks selection for such a small cafe especially, and the atmosphere is very cosy and relaxed. The service is always super friendly too. Will be back in the future too, and would definitely recommend!

Really good small restaurant. Good service and fast. Friendly waiter-cashier. Good location if you come out of the Keilvingrove museum on a cold day.

It isn't obvious from the outside what this cafe is called there is a sign saying it is a pizzeria and espresso bar, so not easy to spot but worth looking. Relatively cheap food and very tasty with fast service and a student discount, a lovely view of kelvingrove art gallery/museum. Would recommend!

We happened on this place after walking about town and before we went to Kelvingrove Museum. What a great find! The pizza was really delicious with fresh ingredients and lovely thin crust and at 12" it was enough to share. We tried and americano and I went for the Expresso with their own soft vanilla ice cream in a demi-tasse.....Wow....it... More

Had a very enjoyable lunch time filler here. Staff are lovely and friendly and the food was fresh, tasty and very good value for money. I'd definitely go back again when in the city. The only downside are the booth seating arrangements when there are four six foot men. It's pretty cramped!

Lovely little cafe, actually one of my favourite in the west end with a beautiful view on Kelvingrove Museum, park and University Campus. The cafe is runned by a charming and always energetic and enthusiastic owner. Sandwiches are nice and so are the salads and pizzas and all obviously freshly made on demand. Recommended place for families as well!

Came here on a sunny day with a craving for pizza and wasn't disappointed. Sat outside and had a great view of the Kelvingrove museum. Enjoyed my pizza which was peppers, goats cheese with pesto as an extra topping they happily obliged. The staff were very attentive - was certainly not forgotten about due to being outside. The coffee was... More

This was recommended to me by a hotel staff. Great spot; perfect for lunch or a light bite. They have very tasty italian sandwiches and good coffee. I also love the fact that you could just sit there and work on your laptop (there's good free wifi) or people watch all day.

After a long couple of days of walking around and wandering the gallery, I popped across the street to The Little Cafe based on it's reviews and it was a perfect choice. On a chilly day, the toasted pesto chicken and mozzarella ciabatta and a hot chocolate were just the nice warm meal I needed to power-up for the next... More
