Biggest regret about Montgomerys? Not having the Irn Bru float when I had the chance! I’ll be back for that though when the sun comes out.
Apart from ice cream floats, Montgomerys does a huge selection of coffees and lunch items/cakes. Everything I’ve had or stolen off my mates’ plates has been good, but the coffees themselves are the star attraction here. They also do a wide range of whole bean coffees to make at home - the hazelnut blend is fab.

Berits & Brown is a deli/café/bistro - given it’s small size I’m a bit surprised that it manages to do all three! I’ve only ever had coffee and cake, always excellent. Would probably have food there more if it weren’t for the fact that the tables seem so small and crushed together. The deli isn’t huge, but it is reasonably well-stocked with yummy looking things and the staff seem knowledgeable.
This place is also licensed and seems to be very popular at night for wine and nibbles. Outdoors tables are a bonus in summer!
118 Ingram Street, Glasgow, Scotland G1 1EJ
Prefer the Ingram Street Tinderbox to its West End counterpart, mostly because it’s more spacious and you’re almost guaranteed to get a seat. The coffee is stronger than Starbucks and has a more smoky Italian flavour. The food is generally good, the cakes always look appetising but I never understand why they leave cakes exposed on the counter to go dry throughout the day - just cover them up!
The staff are friendly although I think there’s room for improvement.
One last thing to Tinderbox - please start doing hazelnut syrup!
74 Brunswick Street, Glasgow, Scotland G1 1TD
I hadn’t been to Café Mao for a while, almost taking for granted that it was right on my doorstep (more or less!) But I was really glad I decided to venture back, as I was reminded how excellent the food is!
The decor is maybe slightly dated, being fairly nondescript pale wood floors, wooden tables and chairs. The menu is a good mix of different asian cuisines, with emphasis on Chinese/Malaysian. The coconut lamb korma was deliciously nutty and sweet, and my partner’s nasi goreng was spicy and scrumptious, complete with fried egg on top. The brownie with butterscotch sauce, and especially the yoghurt mousse with passionfruit, made an excellent end to the meal.
The service was a little slow to start with, but the friendly and bubbly servers made us forget all about this.
Highly recommended for asian food in the Merchant City/city centre.
25 Parnie Street, Glasgow, Scotland G1 5RJ
Great little coffee shop and café near the Tron Theatre on colourful Parnie Street. The food is really fantastic, I’ve only ever had lunch but it’s great quality stuff, and the sandwich combinations are really well thought out!
The decor in itself makes the place worth visiting - everything on a theme of a classic trans-Europe rail journey.
Should also mention the staff are really friendly and welcoming.
30 Bothwell Street, Glasgow, Scotland G2 7JT
This place is awful, god help you if you end up in there. Suppose if you’re out on a stag do and wanting to get mad wi’ it then it would be up your street - otherwise avoid.
46 King Street, Glasgow, Scotland G1 5QT
Probably best place to go in Glasgow if you’re a guy - the owner is a top guy and always does a great cut. Fantastic attention to detail, and pretty cheap for the service you get. Much more than just a barbers, you get a really good quality cut and wash etc.
20 Renfield Lane, Glasgow, Scotland G2 5AR
I really love the food in Stereo, everything’s veggie or vegan and even though I eat meat I would still choose this place over a lot of city centre restaurants, especially for lunch.
The food always tastes really fresh and carefully put together, plus I love the dressing the use for salad. If I’m in for lunch I usually get the soup and sandwich deal for around a fiver, and the soup is always fab.
Have never been at night for drinks or for a gig, but can imagine this would be a nice chilled out place.
443 Duke Street, Glasgow, Scotland G31 1RY
I’m a big fan of this place which is a bit of an oasis in Dennistoun. Have had brunch/lunch/coffee a few times and every time the food has been outstanding. Can especially recommend the full breakfast as it’s miles ahead of anything else I’ve had lately. Also good just for coffee, and they’re licensed too - I think this is about the only place on Duke Street I’d feel happy (and safe?) to have a pint in!
441 Sauchihall Street, Glasgow, Scotland G2 3LG
I always have a great meal at Nanakusa. The unassuming sauna-like shopfront gives way to a fantastic little atrium at the back, and tables are arranged either in benches or booths.
The menu is a good size, offers sushi/sashimi, noodles, soups, bento, teppanyaki, tempura and all sorts of other things. Usefully the menu has pictures of the different dishes - some people might be a bit prudish about this but in a place like Nanakusa it just works. The food has been excellent and the teriyaki duck is amazing.
Personally I like the service, don’t think the staff are too overbearing, they’re just attentive and quick (making this place ideal for work lunch).
Excellent value - wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
