Most wine isn’t vegan because of the filtering agents, I believe the most commonly used are blood and bone marrow, fish oils, isinglass from fish bladders, milk proteins and fibre from crustacean shells!

Next, the lunchtime menu was a big surprise - much larger than I'd expected because you can order from the 'Main Menu' as well as the 'Lunchtime' one (don't ask me why). That meant we were really spoilt for choice and the selection of superbly creative and imaginative vegetarian and vegan meals was exceptional - far better than the other place, very good though it was.
Our meals were freshly made and beautifully arranged on the plates. Geoffrey had the grilled halloumi and aubergine kebab with yogurt mint and tahini sauce with lemon mint salad and herbed flatbread. I agonised over my choice but decided on the lemongrass, ginger and risotto cakes with Thai green curry and basmati rice instead of the flatbread. Both meals were amazing and really 'to die for' and, all resistance broken down by now, we then went on to share the most divine homemade cheesecake with fruits of the forest sauce - also utterly delicious, as was the lovely vegan Cabernet wine.
The service was second to none. David was really welcoming and friendly; he couldn't have been more helpful either. Good service always makes a place for us - old school maybe, but so many people don't seem to care about whether they give or receive good service or not. We have eaten in so many places where we had good food but bad service, or good service with disappointing meals. At the 13th Note (if our lunch today is anything to go by) you'll get the best of everything - nice surroundings, great service and superb meals. We have now found our favourite vegetarian cafe and will eat there the next time we're in the city!

Many thanks John!
Depending upon which night you go, the basement provides entertainment for everyone from amateur musicians, to professionals to legends. Is that Bowie in the back? They serve the best vegan burger in Glasgow.
Very reasonably priced bar and restaurant serving Vegetarian food. I found the food I had to be a bit bland but my fellow diners all enjoyed theirs and the little taste I got made me agree.
The place looks a bit run down but it all adds to the character of the place as a bohemian hang out. Regular live music and events are also held downstairs in a small venue area.
I have never seen a band here, but I have been in for pints and to take a vegan friend out for a meal. Very pleasant atmosphere during the day, with art-house types sitting with laptops. Good jukebox too. The toilets could do with some improvement but other than that, it’s great.
a little out of the way for my tastes, and i haven’t been in nearly as much i should be.
this is a shame, as i actually really like this grungy, slightly sticky little bar.
cheap(ish) pints, and vegetarian food that doesn’t taste as much like sawdust as i expected it to, has always cheered me up when i’ve ventured in.
it’s also a charming little gig venue, for those underground punk / indie / metal bands you’ve never heard of.
well! good vegan food!coffee with soya milk! the place to be at any time of day!live music plays at this venue! good music more talent goes to this joint than others! cant say enough to to this place justice!
One of the few truly veggie places to eat in Glasgow, the food in the 13th Note is great. Absolutely no meat, but you don’t miss this at all, and there are loads of vegan options too. The prices are great, as is the service. If you’re looking for fancy decor, look elsewhere, as this is an indie music venue and the bar/restaurant adopts this too. The walls of the restaurant bit tend to have various art exhibits displayed, available for sale. The downstairs venue is small, and has various Scottish bands playing, but this can be quite hit an miss.
The 13th Note is a dirty run down rock bar that feels exactly like a rock bar should, dirty and run down. It has a live music venue in the basement that allows some very questionable mainly local bands to play. What you see can be very hit and miss and while you are unlikely to catch the next big thing you may find they are playing something you like, if not you can pop back upstairs to the main bar which tend to play the heavier end of the rock music spectrum. Be careful of the basement toilets, every time I’m in there they seem to flood.
Another well established Glasgow indie music institution, the 13th Note is a great place to catch up with the latest local bands, and see smaller touring bands too.
The upstairs bar feels like more of a mainstream pub than the original incarnation of the 13th Note in Glassford Street back in the early 1990s. However, the basement gig venue is close to recreating the original venue’s intimacy, and hosts a wide range of bands and musicians spanning a wide range of musical genres throughout the week.
Also, there is some delicious vegetarian and vegan food on offer, at very good prices too. The spicy chips are awesome!
This place has a cracking ambience with a good mix of customers. Service is friendly and the prices are more than reasonable. There’s a good menu and vegetarians are more than well catered to. The music doesn’t drown out your conversation which is always a bonus
If you are looking for something a bit different then the 13th note cafe might be the palce for you. In the evening there are frequently live music events or djs playing something new and different. Upstairs is the more casual cafe car area while downstairs is a the cool and funky dance floor.The 13th note is well worth a visit and even if it turns out to be not your thing it is well worth the experience. Chilled out and very comfortable with itself, the 13th note has to be seen and experienced.
Another of my Glasgow favourites. I’ve had dreams about their vegan cheesecake, you have to try it! Deeelicious. There’s a restaurant area at the back with an extensive vegetarian/vegan menu (which I’m slowly but surely making my way through), a pub at the front, and gigs downstairs. The music is always excellent, it’s cheap, cheerful, comfortable and relaxed. The staff are lovely too and I like the art they have on display. I go here a lot before gigs in the Barrowlands, it’s quite close by.
