This place is always consistently good - friendly staff and the food is out the world! Delicious and fresh with a French/Spanish twist - if your ever in the Westend take a short walk up Queen Margaret Drive and you'll find this hidden gem

This summer we spent a week in glasgow and were very close to this small cafe. The staff is amazing, friendly and made each and every visit homely and welcome. Coffee is great - just what we needed to kickstart the day.

We had a fantastic breakfast at the North Star. The staff were brilliant, very cheery and smiley, the place was packed, the cafe was buzzing. But, above all, my full English - or Scottish! - breakfast was the best I've ever had.
