Thomson’s Coffee Roastery will occupy the first of the seven iconic adjoining archway.  The open plan roastery, café, bakery and training centre will provide customers with a unique opportunity to experience the roasting process alongside a 58 seater café and in-house bakery offering pizzas, breads and pastries all baked on site.

Russell Jenkins, managing director of Thomson’s Coffee Roasters said: “As Thomson’s embarks on its 176th year, opening our first open plan coffee roastery, café, bakery and training centre in Glasgow is a great milestone for the business.

A Glasgow business through and through, the roastery will see us return to our roots in the city centre and we are proud to be the first business to take a space in The Argyle Street Arches.”

The Roastery will also serve as a training centre for Thomson’s trade and public customers. The space will enable them to offer tailored training for our café and restaurant customers as well as running SCA certified barista and brewing classes for coffee professionals and enthusiasts alike.
