Greens coffee house Shawlands Southside glasgow breakfast

Food Review: Greens Coffee House, Shawlands, Glasgow

Best all day breakfast Southside? On our first visit to Greens, we had just sat down when a member of staff came over to ask what we wanted even though we'd only just opened the menu!  Good to see staff eager but...give us two minutes! Mrs Foodie fancied Earl Grey tea but the girl had

Thank 41oodness for online home delivery!

Food review: Surfdogs, 49 Kilmarnock Road, Glasgow

New dog in town After a residence at Taste Buchanan, Surfdogs, a pop-up specializing in gourmet hot dogs have found themselves a permanent home on Kilmarnock Road in Shawlands, right where Cafe Noor used to be.  Open for little over a week, we pored over the descriptions on their website then wandered along with big empty

Shawlands five reasons it rocks

Five reasons why Shawlands rocks

Keep Shawlands Strange Says Cafe Strangebrew.  We're not really that strange, just a bit more laid-back and chilled than our west end cousins. The rest of the world has caught up with the knowledge that Shawlands is a great place to live. Us locals knew it, and now it has been named one of the best places to live

Nando's silverburn glasgow

Food Review: Nando’s, Silverburn, Glasgow

Is Nando's still..."cheeky"? Mr C popped along to Nando's at Silverburn, Pollok, in Glasgow's southside for a quick bite to eat before going to the cinema. We arrived at the restaurant about 5.30pm. It was busy, but not as jam-packed as we thought it would be, considering it was a Friday evening. We were welcomed pretty

Yaars Indian takeaway Southside glasgow

Food Review: Yaars, 44 Skirving Street, Glasgow

A new yaardstick for Southside takeaways Recently opened in the site of the original Buddy's on Skirving Street is Yaars. It's an Indian takeaway and home delivery with a difference.

Food Review: Millbrae Hill Cafe, 39 Milbrae Road, Glasgow

We found our thrill in Millbrae hill Millbrae hill cafe recently opened in the Battlefield/Langside area in the Southside of Glasgow and has settled in to become a firm favourite of locals quickly (it used to be 1901 cafe).

Salt & Vinegar glasgow

Food review: Salt and Vinegar, 1044 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow

Did we land a big fish in Shawlands? Salt and Vinegar in Shawlands seemed to take forever to open, teasing us, with the brown paper on the windows, as to what was inside.  Now it is open and we wandered along to see if it was worth the wait. Inside A fair amount of thought

Dandelion cafe Glasgow

Cafe Review: Dandelion Cafe, Newlands Park, Glasgow

  Newlands Park, Southside Glasgow, Dandelion cafe We grabbed the last seats outside to make the most of the sun.   It was sunny and a public holiday hence a very busy cafe. As a result we had a 40 min wait for food to arrive, well, actually that's not true, the slice of cake we
