This place is always consistently good - friendly staff and the food is out the world! Delicious and fresh with a French/Spanish twist - if your ever in the Westend take a short walk up Queen Margaret Drive and you'll find this hidden gem

The prices of food options at this cafe are very good, especially given the generous portion sizes. Really delicious fresh food, plus the staff are friendly and helpful.

This summer we spent a week in glasgow and were very close to this small cafe. The staff is amazing, friendly and made each and every visit homely and welcome. Coffee is great - just what we needed to kickstart the day.

We had a fantastic breakfast at the North Star. The staff were brilliant, very cheery and smiley, the place was packed, the cafe was buzzing. But, above all, my full English - or Scottish! - breakfast was the best I've ever had.

Hi. There are a couple of tables outside for better weather but definitely no room inside for prams! Ok if you fold it up,I'd think. You'll be sure of a warm welcome!
