Hi.

Welcome to The Glasgow Food Blog. I love Glasgow, and I love food. It's a match made in heaven.

Review: Kaf Coffee, Glasgow West End

2018 managed to disappear in a flash, and for about 37 reasons I didn’t get a chance to blog but it’s my aim this year to write a lot more regularly!

Kaf Coffee is a speciality coffee cafe I’ve visited twice this week and I have a lot of respect and admiration for what they’re doing. I’ve been previously but not properly – once was just for a coffee, and the other time was a pop up ramen night. Today I visited for a catch up with my two wonderful pals – Ashley Baxter, founder of With Jack (insurance for freelancers) and Charlotte of Blether Digital. You’ll see their lovely hands in some of these photos!

What’s it like inside?

It’s pretty small with limited seating but it’s dog friendly (tick), bright (tick) and comfy so don’t be put off. They also have a bench/table in front if you fancy sitting outside. Tables turn over pretty quickly and they have a no-laptop rule which I love.

What’s on the menu at Kaf?

Woah, the menu. Seriously, this menu is epic – you will have a tough time choosing! There’s Scandi plates (meat and vegan), French toast, eggs Benedict, a sandwich and granola. I had the granola last week – a lovely bowl of homemade granola, yoghurt, bananas, strawberries and mint – absolutely lush. I really loved this and struggled to eat it all.

Today I had the meat Scandi plate which was lovely. A full, overflowing plate with potatoes, two slices of toasted bread, roasted cherry tomatoes, two slices of perfect bacon, a soft boiled egg, cheese, hummus as well as a bowl of yoghurt, granola, berries and sliced fruit. WOAH. An amazing plate of food which is beautiful and tasty AF. You might think I was full after that but I still managed to squeeze in cake as their cakes are too tempting to resist.

The staff manage to run a super slick operation even though the place is busy and small. I’m really impressed by their barista and the food is amazingly presented.

Where can I find Kaf?

Hyndland Street in Partick. I tend to visit during the week so there’s plenty of parking outside. Make sure you buy a parking ticket though! It’s not far from the subway (Kelvinhall) if you’re coming by public transport.

Due to the size, they don’t take bookings. I noticed tables turning over pretty quickly. And they’re dog friendly 🐶!

FAQ about my blog:

  • I only write about the places that I love. Life's too short to write whole blog posts about meh experiences. So if somewhere is mentioned on here, you know I loved it and I recommend it. 

  • I don't write about freebies or blogger events. I don't accept money for sponsored posts. Everything I write about and review is paid for by me. 

  • I only write about local, independent businesses. To me, they're so much more interesting than chains. I like to be able to give independent businesses a bit of love through this blog.

  • I work as a freelancer marketer and social media manager. While I am contracted to work for a client, I do not post anything about them on my blog.
