- Lunch in Glasgow
There’s two just round the corner from each other – a coffee and cake bit on Gordon St and a food place just round the corner on (I forget) street. Quite wee so can be busy.
Guys in the merchant city is good too
a bit difficult to find but Singl End is my fave just nowPosted 8 months ago
Head out the west end, Hanoi bicycle shop for cracking Vietnamese grub, wee wander round the corner to artisan roast for coffee and their awesome homemade brioche after.
Then wander down to the free kelvingrove museum, if you have time. All Glasgow museums are free, they’re a great asset to the people of the city that use them.Posted 8 months ago
Finnieston is ‘the new west end’ these days, used to be a bit of a dead zone, but really vibrant these days and littered with bars and restaurants.
This is really due to the hydro opening, read a wee while ago that it’s the 4th busiest entertainment venue on the planet, ahead of Madison square garden.
Great stretch of places.Posted 8 months agomoonsaballoonMember

If your on the train Gordon st coffee right at the exit of central station does really nice coffee but is more of a takeaway place .
If you do go to finnestion lebowskis does imho the best burger in GlasgowarrpeeMember
NB. Regrettably, Riverhill is closed. Just the coffee bar open now. Martha’s in the centre of town is a great quick lunch stop.
Superior Chinese in Opium – superb Dim Sum.
Ox and Finch and Alchemilla are the best in town IMO, but getting a table at short notice is tough.Posted 8 months agomcj78Member
Another vote for either Paesano for a pizza, or Finnieston – Alchemilla probably would be do-able for lunch, but Ox & Finch is always full, has anyone said Mother India yet?
I was sad to see Riverhill in town go – they stopped their Friday / Saturday night dinner menu after their head chef left – the one in Helensburgh is good though.
I’m starving now.Posted 8 months ago
Thanks for all the advice, had a grand day out. Parked in the new car park under the Sikh temple andPosted 8 months ago
Walked for miles. Visited Kelvingrove, GoMA and lots of interesting venues. The architecture is stunning. I much prefer it to Edinburgh.
Lunch in Where the monkey sleeps was excellent but i have to say coffee and cake was better in Riverhill coffee bar on Gordon st.
I was sad to leave but it was a really fun day.
