‘Out to brunch
For a healthy energy boost, head to the Siempre Bicycle Café (19) at 162 Dumbarton Road (0141 334 2385; siemprebicyclecafe.com), Glasgow’s first bicycle café. You can park your bike inside or out and even have it serviced while you tuck into ethically sourced, largely organic food. Scrambled egg and smoked salmon on a bagel costs £5.95.’
Le Tour De France will be taking place from July 5th to the 27th of July. We’re hosting live coverage of ALL stages of the race but celebrating the start and finish! We will also have our French themed Le Tour specials menu.
Check out the wonderful Ron McKenna’s review of the cafe……5/5 atmosphere…. enough said however if you want more ? Full pdf being requested for upload
Joanna Blythman, restaurant critic from the Sunday Herald, paid us a visit recently and here’s a copy of her excellent review.
We’ve spotted a few people asking ‘mmm, why does this coffee taste so damn good?!’ and we thought it’s only fair to give you a fuller explanation… So, to the ultimate question – what makes our coffee different? Well, apart from our expert barista training (our passionate coffee cup didn’t get her nickname for nothing!) designed to give you that perfect cup, it’s all about the quality of the ingredients, and the suppliers, Dear Green Roasters.
Lisa, the founder of Dear Green, is a local specialist in coffee roasting. When we say specialist, this lady knows her coffee like no other. Not to mention she has morals to go with her expertise. She goes out her way to find out exactly what’s going on in the plantations, that they are ethical and sustainable. As she puts it, “You could go and buy a generic coffee; but I can tell you the name of the farmer who made a particular cup”. Can’t say fairer than that, really.
