Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

A welcome addition to Argyle Street's eastern end – an already interesting arty area that has for long held so much potential – recently opened Rose and Grants Trongate is the sister café to its namesake in Milngavie. Bright and spacious, with a couch for lounging and plenty of tables, it is already pulling in the lunchtime crowd and may soon be open as an evening bistro too. The breakfast menu ranges from bagels to yogurt muesli while lunch includes soups, salads and sandwiches. The best of both worlds is the chicken caesar baguette which skimps a bit on the parmesan but makes up for it with the tasty dressing. The less common soup combo of tomato and parsnip works very well – the tomato adding so much more than its subtle background taste suggests. The grilled goat's cheese salad is a melting marvel, served with a generous portion of pancetta and pine nuts on a bed of rocket.

Revisited with two friends this week. We had 3 excellent, fresh tasty salads that were a delight to the eye too and the best lattes in Glasgow.
Friendly efficient service added to a very enjoyable experience.

*Amazing* coffee!, lovely helpful staff and delicious looking brownies. I had only popped in on Saturday morning because I saw the Bei and Nannini sign through the window, loved my macchiato just like in Lucca, made me homesick! You want coffee like in Italy, try this place you wont be disappointed.
