URBAN WEST

urban west snack mag foodie explorers

One of the best locations in the west end to watch the world (or at least Glasgow!) go by is through the tall windows of Urban West. GWR on Great Western Road.

Simple pleasures – coffee and good food in easy going, comfy surroundings, that’s what Urban West. GWR is all about. The decor is clean and bright with an added splash of boutique in the form of a wonderful Timorous Beasties feature wall. The menu is small and focused, a good sign that the kitchen concentrates on what they do best; and that they do.

For brunch, you have the option to go for their always awesome waffles (poached egg, bacon and spinach or peanut butter and blueberries) or maybe you’d prefer an omelette with vegetarian-friendly spinach and halloumi? They also serve up a classic gooey cheese and bacon combination which promises to hit all the right spots. If you’re feeling the want to push the boat out you can add extra toppings including bacon, eggs, avocado, smoked salmon and sausage or black pudding. Even better, they’re currently developing a dedicated brunch menu, keep an eye out for that in the next few weeks.

Or have some heart warming soup. Their excellent soup and sandwich specials are on offer through Monday to Friday. Owner Giancaro Dalsasso proudly sources from Glasgow suppliers such as Roots, Fruits & Flowers and The Freedom Bakery – local and quality the common threads.

To top things off, what better way to enjoy people watching than with an expertly-brewed Italian blend of A.Nannini coffee? The WiFi is free and Urban West. GWR is dog friendly too. So whether you are on a dog date, working or just in for a cuppa, this really is a great wee place to relax in.
