University Café and Takeaway
The University itself boasts a large number of cafés, and being located in the West End of Glasgow there’s no shortage of cafés and places to get an afternoon snack. There is one place in the West End that does stick out, for a few reasons.
A Byres Road institution, the University Café has been under the ownership of the Verrecchia family since 1918, currently in its fourth generation. Known for its award-winning Italian ice cream (made on the premises), the menu contains fish suppers, soup, fry-ups, pizzas, homemade lasagne and more, for prices a student can afford. The décor looks unchanged from a century earlier, and combined with all the little detail and decorations, creates an interesting atmosphere. Plus, they’ve got a large number of large glass jars full of candy on sale. Always a bonus.
