I really like this place not many cafes in Govan but this is definitely the best one. The coffee is nice and both breakfast and lunch are good. Good value for money too and on a nice day sitting outside is pleasant.

The food here is really lovely, the menu is varied and good options for vegetarians. I just wish it was a bit bigger as it's been full the last couple of times I have visited and table booking isn't allowed.

Have been here 3 times, and can't fault the food! Last couple of times didn't find this particular staff member very friendly. Ordered steak baguette, and cranberry Brie and walnut ciabatta. Food was lovely, but I had asked the waitress if I could have my latte with my sandwich, then she promptly walked over with the coffee.That was acceptable as... More

Quality food and coffee in a friendly relaxed atmosphere, varied menu with fresh ingredients. Been in here a few times cappuccino and a Cajun grilled chicken salad. Coffee comes with side biscuit and salad crisp leaves and tasty chicken QUALITY. If your going anywhere for a quality customer service this is the place

Beside Govan bus station I had no expectations other than to spend an hour between meetings. This is an honest cafe serving above average food at extremely reasonable prices. Service was efficient, quick and accurate. The menu had something for everyone. Well done to them and if you are in the area I doubt you'll find better. As in the... More

I met friends there yesterday and tried the hot chocolate. The swirled cream on top was so high that all my friends burst out laughing-and it not only looked great but tasted great too-with added marshmallow which added to the flavour Everyone also ebjoyed the cakes. One of my friends is over from New Zealand and she just loved the... More

We stopped off for late lunch on Saturday at Cafe 13 having heard good reports of this eating place in Govan. Govan has great character and heritage but has yet to get itself on the visitor highway. However, through the efforts of local champions some good things are happening (Govan Stones - hogbacks etc). One of the pioneers of change... More

Had lunch here today. The service was quick and efficient and the food itself was absolutely gorgeous. I had the falafels in tomato and chilli sauce with cous cous and salad and I could not fault it. My two eating partners cleared their plates and we were all impressed with the food on offer and the diversity. Lot's of options... More
