Sick of soggy supermarket sandwiches? Fancy a decent munch for lunch? Head to Piece on Argyle Street in up-and-coming Finnieston.
A ‘piece’ in the Glasgow vernacular is a sandwich. Traditionally, two slices of pan bread spread with jam – a ‘jeely piece’. But the folk in Piece take their sandwiches seriously.
There’s a huge selection of fillings – Surf n Turf (roast beef and sweet chili prawns), The Inquisitor (chorizo and manchego), Jamaican chicken (with mango and chili salsa), The Smackdown (smoked mackerel and diced beetroot) and You Win! (chili and basil marinated mozzarella) – and that’s just some of them. I can’t see past their Pastrami Special (pastrami, Monterey Jack cheese, amazing coleslaw and gherkins). In fact, I want one now.
Pieces don’t come cheap (£ 3.75 a pop for most), but baguettes and ciabattas are on the large side so, unless you’re a gannet, they’ll fill you up for the afternoon.
Coffee is good quality and they do cakes and soups and bagels too.
You can sit in or take away (costs slightly more to sit in) or if you’re a lazy git with more money than sense, there’s a £ 2 delivery charge for orders under £ 20. Delivery on orders over £ 20 is free.
You’ll find Pieces on Great Western Road, Govan and Speirs Wharf too. See the website for details.
