This place, the Trans Europe Cafe, is a hidden treasure sandwiched amongst art galleries just on the edge of the city centre, where the ambiance draws you in and the simple well made fare will keep you coming back.
The cafe is a very interesting place for the interior alone, the walls are decorated with maps of European cities, but the roots are firmly in Glasgow with the booth seats sourced from bus seats.
The owner is really friendly and I’ve seen him talking to regulars like old friends. Trans Europe cafe is quite reasonably priced and has a great range of sandwiches taking their namesake from European cities, with fillings you would expect from the cities. I particularly like the seriously satisfying Lisbon sandwich which has great flavours of mozzarella, peppers and tangy balsamic. The cafe really has encompassed the chill of a local European hang out here. So go in with time and be ready to relax.
