Your top Glasgow cafes – #RSH Guides
Each week, 10 train fans win £10 worth of redspottedhanky.com loyalty points by tweeting their tips about a set destination to us at #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week we asked you to tweet us and tell us about your favourite Glasgow cafes.
Read on for this week’s winning tips – and to find out where to stop off for a tasty snack and a caffeine hit in Glasgow. Don’t forget to share your tips with us too, using Twitter. You could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays or car hire.
• @ConstellationMe pulled in our first lot of loyalty points with a stellar tip to try The Willow Tea Rooms in Sauciehall Street. Sip a cup of tea or coffee; admire the interior design created by Charles Rennie Mackintosh; and tuck into haggis in a jacket tattie or a bowl of Cullen Skink. And, if you get peckish again later, you can try out their Buchanan Street tea rooms too.
• @NiallMGray took home those points this week too with his winning tweet to head to Queens Café in Victoria Road for what he says is probably the best ice cream in Glasgow – and plenty of other online reviewers agree with him too. Not only that, this old-style café is just up the road from Queen’s Park Station, so it’s a great stop-off point for rail travellers.
• @ryath89 chugged into this week’s winning roundup too with his Twitter tip to try The Arches Café Bar and Restaurant in Argyle Street. As well as serving delicious food in its cafe, The Arches is an entertainment venue, hosting gigs, club nights and art exhibitions – and it’s entrance is under Hielanman’s Umbrella, the railway bridge at Glasgow Central Station, so it’s the perfect destination for anyone heading to Glasgow on the train.
• @delboy666666 picked up those loyalty points as well with a tweet tip to try Carluccio’s in West Nile Street. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it’s the ideal choice for anyone who fancies a cappuccino – and, as @delboy666666 points out, it’s just ‘an olive stone’s throw’ from Glasgow Central Station.
• @HazelWhatley steamrolled her way into week’s top ten with a great tip to try the Hillfoot Café in Milngavie Road, Bearsden, just outside of Glasgow. She says it’s like walking into ‘a Willy Wonka wonderland’ – and this café, known for its ice cream and sweets, is just a short walk from Hillfoot Station so you can easily get there by train.
• @BythewayAJ made it into this week’s winning picks too with a Twitter tip to head for the Biscuit Café in Skirving Street for great barista coffee or a fantastic Sunday brunch. Glasgow’s first coffee house diner, it has something for everyone, so whether you want to indulge yourself with Scottish smoked salmon or a classic chip buttie, it’s the place to go.
• @LauraCow also made it into our top ten with a a Twitter reminder to try Tinderbox in Byres Road. She recommends ordering the caramel waffles to go with your coffee – sounds like a winning combination to us.
• @Gertiirving won this week too with a great tip to try out the Trans-Europe Café in Parnie Street. If you’re feeling the effects of a Saturday night out enjoying Glasgow’s lively nightlife, she says the café’s amazing Sunday Brunch is ‘just what the Dr ordered’.
• @rh23rh23 picked up those prize points too with a top tweet directing us to the Tapa coffeehouse in Pollokshaws Road, Strathbungo. This award-winning café serves freshly roasted coffee and mouth-watering organic food, including @rh23rh23’s menu favourite – Eggs Florentine on organic sourdough bread.
• @MJRestaino pulled in the last of this week’s prize points with a Twitter tip to head for the Tea Rooms at the Butterfly and the Pig in Bath Street. You can relax in charming surroundings and enjoy sandwiches, home-made cakes and a pot of tea after a day’s shopping in Glasgow – and the Butterfly and the Pig is conveniently close to the city’s Charing Cross, Queen Street and Central stations.
Congratulations to all of this week’s winners – and thanks for tweeting your Glasgow café guides and recommendations! Don’t forget to visit us on Twitter to find out about next week’s competition too, as there are even more points to put towards cheap train tickets to be won.
