Whereas most of the cafés around the Glasgow University campus are operated by the same company and offer pretty much the same thing in each of them (with a few notable differences, of course), there is one café on campus which remains a bit of a hidden gem.
Located on the eastern side of the Wellington Church is a café called The Crypt, which is open from 10am to 1.45pm, and then from 2pm to 4pm. The offering during the earlier section is hot food, including some great toasties and soup, and the later time is for baked goods.
Since discovering it I go there about three times a week for breakfast, especially because the coffee there is the best you can get on campus, and it’s only a pound (with free refills!) Same applies to the tea as well.
There’s also a piano in the café with a sign saying “Play Me”.
