Sick of soggy supermarket sandwiches? Fancy a decent munch for lunch? Head to Piece on Argyle Street in Finnieston.
A ‘piece’ in the Glasgow vernacular is a sandwich. Traditionally, two slices of pan bread spread with jam – a ‘jeely piece’. But the Piece pieces are way more fancy. The folk here take their sandwiches seriously.
Their coleslaw is amazing and there’s a huge selection of fillings including The Dug’s Baws (roast pork, gouda, coleslaw) The Vanh Mi (roast cauliflower, pickled carrots and chillies), The Randi Scandi (salmon, new potatoes, egg, gerkins, spinach). I can’t see past their Pastrami Special (pastrami, Monterey Jack cheese, coleslaw and gherkins). In fact, I want one now.
Pieces don’t come cheap (£4.40 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 salads, soups, bagels and cakes 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, you can order online and get your piece delivered.
