Been living in Dennistoun for a couple years now, and after sampling all of the coffees in town, Tapa is hands down the best. I get the flat white to go usually and the temperature and strength is always spot on. What makes it even better is the great service, smiles and chat I get while I wait. A rare... More

Took my vegan son, who lives nearby, for a late breakfast/early lunch - so happy to get lovely food and tea/coffee for him as well as his dad and me (I'm vegetarian, dad not). A range of things tried and all excellent - the sweet potato and caramelised onion pastry especially good, served with fresh, interesting side salads. And couldn't... More

A great little place for coffee breakfast or light lunch not to mention buying wonderful bread. Love to go there for coffee and brioche

Amazing Bread! Amazing Coffee! All organic! Too good! There's not really anything more I can say... Maybe a little bit pricey but that doesn't matter to me here because the quality is soo good!

My friend who is a local frequents this little cafe. The cake I had was a vegan chocolate and Beetroot cake and was absolutely delicious (especially for this heavy meat-eater). The coffee tasty! The staff friendly, engaging and have a good rapport with the locals.

Staff are always trying to do several things at one so this means no one gets good service. Design and cleanliness of the shop are so old and worn it really makes it an unpleasant place to consume food and drinks. Could be improved. Price is on par with city centre but not other Dennistoun cafes.
