We were surprised to find that this little corner café served such excellent fresh food! What taste! What quality! Reviewers are right about the warm friendly welcome too. To the chap who attended to our bill.....Thank you for the lovely tomato ....that was a kind gesture! We hope to come back next time we are in Glasgow!

There's a lot to like about this place, friendly and the food was good and fresh; but woefully understaffed on Saturday lunchtime so took ages to clear tables and even more ages for food to arrive. Which kind of defeated to point as we chose café over pub specifically in hope of a quick bite.

The location is excellent being just across the road from the Kelvingrove Gallery. The lunch Special is exceptional value of £5. We each had homemade soup (tomato and basil which tasted as if it really was made of tomato and basil) and a panini - freshly prepared and pleasantly full. The staff were cheerful.

Warm and friendly welcome here as we squeezed into the tight little seating booths and planned brunch before heading to Kelvingrove Art Gallery across the road. Great coffee and very tasty freshly made panini type toasted sandwiches in (to us) the Aussie - salad, red onions, and crushed avocado accompanying very good quality smoked salmon. We'll be back - lively... More

We were in the area and decided to have something to eat before heading home.The Little Cafe isn't outstanding to look at, but we'd definitely go back if we were passing. We all had pizzas which were made to order. Lovely thin crispy crusts just as I like them, and they were huge! The coffee was some of the best... More

Visited in the passing, needing breakfast en route to city centre and so glad we did. Both my son and I had the Mediterranean breakfast with bacon and it was superb, as was the coffee. You can tell the staff care and were so pleasant and efficient. Quality of food was excellent, as were prices and will definitely be back... More

We had the soup which is served with plenty of crusty bread, a pot of tea each and the tomato and mozzarella salad. The food was so fresh and tasted so good. The restaurant manager was very friendly and helpful. Very convenient for the Kelvingrove museum and really great prices too. Couldn't fault it! 👍🏻😀
