If I was a member of the new hipster cycling revolution and I wanted a lovely cup of coffee, brunch or a petit croque monsieur I would pedal my way to The Siempre Cafe.
Here I would park my ten speed, mountain bike, hybrid or chopper, relax my Lycra and chill out in the only place in Glasgow you can have breakfast, brunch, lunch and have an afternoon libation whilst your handlebars are being adjusted and your chains de-rusted!
Siempre is unique in that it’s a cafe, restaurant and indeed bar and bike sales repair shop. Here the bikes and repairs come with the tire rubbery squeaky scent to accompany your morning coffee, breakfast roll, cereal or croissant introduction to the day. Or, brunches, croques, sandwiches and soups (all made with seasonal produce), while you relax, ponder or while away your time as your pedals are oiled and your chrome bars shined.
Out back you can marvel at the impressive graffiti murals in the garden with the whiff of Berlin or Amsterdam cool in the air, whilst tucking in to a Vegan platter or French toast and maple syrup. Or if in the mood, spend the evening working your way through the cocktail menu with a tipple and a snack before you get your wheels back!
Up front is where the bike shop and repair centre is with bikes and bike ecoutrements to see, buy and admire amongst cycling aficionados, enthusiastic amateurs and Tour de Glasgow enthusiasts.
Wheely cool place!
