After a few years building up a successful coffee shop business, we like to think that we do a great job so nothing makes us feel prouder than when someone recognises all our hard work and last month we won best coffee shop at The Scottish Cafe Awards at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow! This was the first ever awards ceremony of its kind in Scotland so we’re even more chuffed to be recognised as the best in the country!
What’s the secret to our success? Well, we like to think that it’s because of our great coffee – we aren’t just a coffee shop, we roast our own coffee too! All of which is roasted daily on site for freshness (come for a demonstration every Wednesday evening!) so there’s nothing lost in transportation. Our Glasgow Roast has gone down a storm with commuters and you can buy bags of the freshest coffee and our other roasts for drinking at home. We also have a great team who are knowledgeable and helpful, and we have a willingness to experiment, try something new – and, of course, we sell tasty food too!
The European Championships has come to the city and we’re all excited for Glasgow 2018 and will be going to see a few sporting events ourselves. If you’re coming to visit the “Worlds Friendliest City” check out PeopleMakeGlasgow for an idea of things to see and do and obviously grab a coffee as you pass through Glasgow Central Station. We’re also looking forward to Piping Live later this month and bags of our coffee will be available at the Piping Centre, so we’ve got it covered.
Back to the coffee – it would be a shame to keep all that coffee in Gordon Street when we’ve starting to make a name for ourselves nationwide so (fingers crossed) we’re hoping to open a brand new roastery in Edinburgh in the not too distant future so watch this space!
In the meantime come by, say hello and soak up the atmosphere of Glasgow 2018 and Piping Live.
