Looking for somewhere to rest our weary feet between lunch and dinner during a day exploring Glasgow we came upon this lovely coffee shop and were tempted in by the different choices of hot chocolate on the menu and the selection cakes on display. We were both very excited by the peppermint hot chocolate which was delicious and shared a... More

I paid £4.50 for a small coffee and a muffin to sit in. Seriously, why did coffee become so expensive to make? It probably cost them about 80 pence to make the coffee and the latte and they sell them for a lot more. I understand there is VAT to pay but this is too expensive. The same cost £3... More

Part of the Glasgow-based iCafe chain, this is a bit like Beanscene (in its good days!), but with PCs. I come here fairly frequently for a few cups of Suki tea and usually get a panini or soup as well. There's a good range of (tasty) teas and coffees and I'm always able to find something to eat. Although this... More

Also have computers with Internet and a4 printers you can pay to borrow. I've been in several times and have found that they're printers are not... More

My friend and I regularly play card games together and find iCafe on Great Western Road a great place to do so. Well-sized tables accommodate our games easily, the food and cakes are great to munch on while playing and the cosmopolitan ambience is a welcome backdrop to our playtime. The staff are exceptionally friendly and courteous and Raj offers... More

Extremely tasty porridge, lovely coffee. Genuine, friendly, funny ladies served me. Don't know what anyone else would need to know to get this to 100 characters.
