Café
“Another cracker of a coffee shop! Using beans from Dear Green Coffee Roasters, a cult favourite Glaswegian brand, this thorn wood cafe is small in size but churns out reasonably priced beverages. The flat whites are particularly good, and on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning the plain coffee is just a £1! Not to mention they serve their coffees in the most delightful pottered cups...especially made for the cafe by a local potter! ”
