We live near this cafe; it's old fashioned and a bit dishreviled, like us, so we are at home here! My other half had full English breakfast and I had gluten free pancakes, bacon and maple syrup. Delicious all round but they don't give you...More

Kelvingrove Cafe is one of those places where they haven't finished decorating. Deliberately. It's that 'Hipster Chic' thing; nothing quite matches and it's all deliberately a bit threadbare. You either like it or you don't. I kinda liked this version. Positioned in the middle of...More

The staff are friendly but the service was a little poor because we had to ask for the menu... This is only one negative thing. Honesty, I didn't expect their food to be that good.... I ordered KC burger. Chips were my ideal sliced size...More

From the minute you walk into the KC, you are charmed. Transported back to old Brooklyn, you take a seat at the bar or a classic booth and the experts take over. Drinks are not just poured or shaken... they are created like magic in...More

Would definitely give this place a try, gastropub food at its best, but loads of great places in the area if the menu here is not to your liking.. Enjoy your trip to Glasgow
