In Bloom is a small, quirky vegan cafe sitting close to St George’s Cross, between the centre of Glasgow and the West End. Joining the list of the city’s already bursting vegan/vegetarian scene, its originality lies in the Nirvana-themed inspiration (it is named after the song from the ’90s Seattle band’s album “Nevermind”) for the flowery decor, the music and food names on the menu.
They serve a small selection of sandwiches, wraps and freshly made pastas and pastries as well as good coffees, all at a very reasonable price. Most dishes are inspired and named after Nirvana songs, which makes it fun to browse the menu (I fancy the Polly’s Ploughman)
The space is small and busy with nearby workers, teenagers and curious at lunchtime, so most customers buy to take away. However, we generally manage to find a seat by the window corner when we come for a weekend breakfast. The owners have a laid-back attitude and are nice to chat to.
In Bloom is a lovely wee place and should definitely be on your Glasgow bucketlist if you are into healthy tasty treats and grunge music! And shall I dare say it? Come as you are.
