We visited this a lunchtime after tour of church earlier by very helpful guide. Food was great, service excellent. Given discount. We drank St Mungo on draught. One of Glasgow's best kept secrets!

The secretary booked this as they utilised the "tastecard" offer. It has a Scottish feel for it's menu that my fellow dinners enjoyed. Everything we had was excellent quality and when I am back in Glasgow that is where I will go

It’s been a few years since I last ate at Café Source, but with a friend visiting I thought it a good chance to try it out again. On a relatively quiet Tuesday night it wasn’t busy, but not empty, with people able to have a good drink and a chat. Café Source has a nice atmosphere to it, the... More

Went here with partner and mother-in-law as a wee treat and we were not disappointed in the food or drink selection. Our menu picks were slow braised beef linguini x 2 and one veggie haggis burger, followed by Orkney Fudge Cheesecake, Creme Brulee and Warm home-made waffle. All absolutely delicious and faultless. The portion of linguini was more than enough... More

Food was below average. They could do a lot better. Poor selection for a Saturday night. Macaroni fish pie ? Haggis burger that tasted of beef. Pork that has dried out . Glasgow restaurants have greatly improved and this one needs to up its game if its going to compete.
