Often come here and can't say just how high I rate it. If your looking for a cafe in the West End its worth making that extra 5 minute walk along Queen Margaret Drive to get to this gem. I should know I've been to most of the cafe near Byers Road!

Personally I make it a point of going for their special of the day , the food is top quality and professionally made - so its got that home made feel to it but also delivers time and again. At peak times it can get busy but thats the only downfall. Great people too!

My sister and i visited the North Star cafe for the first time for breakfast and I am soooo glad we did! We were welcomed with big smiles from the loveky staff and took a seat by the window. We both went for the french toast with maple syrup as it had been recommended ny a friend. I did wonder if it would be enough to fill me up for a busy day at work...well..... The biggest plates of beautiful french toast (gluten free for me) arrived- 4 massive bits of bread with lots of maple syrup and a big pot of tea to go with! The food was tremendous as were the friendly staff. I love the atmosphere of the cafe as it is very homely feeling with lots of regular customers dropping in.
It is so refreshing to find a small business that cater for gluten and wheat free customers, it seems to be that everything they do comes in gluten free aswell. I cant wait to return to try some of the amazing looking gluten free cakes.

Keep up the good work North Star! See you again soon

I like North Star in generally, because the food is very tasty and you always have healthy choices even from the Specials of the day. The staff is very friendly, they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.
But now I am writing because of a new experience: the other day I tried Maurizio's focaccia, which is just amazing, the best focaccia I have ever tasted! And I am a big fan of italian cousine. It is not on the menu, so you have to pre order, but it is worth to do so, because it is probably the best one in Scotland.

I have found my favourite coffee in North Star, and I simply just love the place!The lovely couple, Ester and Maurizio are doing very good job to feel yourself relaxed and comfortable while you take a coffee and eat something from the fantastic menu.
They have real quality food on the menu (often from Italy) + magic what Maurizio/Massimo, the chefs do in the kitchen + very friendly staff, which all in all means happy and delighted guests, like me... :-)))
The place is close to Byres Road and the Botanic Gardens at Queen Margaret Drive.
