Another Year of Glasgow Coffee Festival

This was my third year attending Glasgow Coffee Festival. You can see photos from the last 2 years here and here. In some respects it was better than other years (they introduced reusable cups, which in turn saved a grand total of 18,000+ disposable cups). The only disappointment was that no dogs were allowed this year (ignore those photos of Indie—she is an emotional support dog).

I ate cake, drank coffee and chatted to suppliers about the businesses they’re building and coffee they’re roasting. Just like last year, Rab and I had photographed a wedding the day before so we needed caffeine to recover.

 
 

Saturday Mornings at Market Coffee

The Southside is where it’s at. A lot of indie coffee shops have been popping up, including Market Coffee. If you want to drink great coffee in a surrounding that’s perfect for Instagram, this is the place! Shawshank and I could have spent hours here, but 2 coffees and 1 cake was our limit. We’ll definitely be back.

 
 

The Good Coffee Cartel

Oh my, isn’t it exciting when you discover a new coffee shop? Not only that, but one that happens to be a 5 minute walk away… and is dog friendly? The Good Coffee Cartel is nailing it.

The Good Coffee Cartel is a coffee place, roaster and retail shop.  Get ’em checked.

 
 

Coffee at Kelvingrove Cafe

Met my pals, Lindsay and Joe, for brunch at Kelvingrove Cafe. They were hungover. Aside from my cold I was fresh as a daisy. Still, I treated myself to a big breakfast—the brioche french toast. It was so good I ate it before I could take a photo. Here is a picture of my coffee, though.

 
 

Americano and Apple Tart

It’s been almost a year since I visited Cottonrake Bakery, despite finding myself on Great Western Road often. On Saturday I returned with my friend, Rab. It’s a lovely spot for fresh cakes, but make sure you visit early—they usually sell out.

 
 

Vietnamese Coffee at Monty’s

Okay, I lied. It’s not called Monty’s. It used to be Montogomery’s. Then Monty’s. Most recently it’s rebranded to 10 10. I don’t care what it’s called, as long as they continue serving Vietnamese coffee I’ll be there.

I’ve never visited Monty’s or 10 10 or whatever and not ordered the Vietnamese Coffee. It’s very sweet and a nice change from my usual coffee.

 
 

Coffee Time With Rab

Hanging out with my friend, Rab, is one of my favourite things. We both like photography and coffee, so weekend hangs will consist of cameras and caffeine.

It was the 23rd of December, so town was busy with last minute shoppers. We escaped to Laboratorio Espresso in between shooting street photography. I wasn’t happy with any of my street shots, but the coffee was tasty.

 
 

Coffee Break at Black Pine

Now I’ll be arranging all of my client meetings at Black Pine Coffee! Last weekend I met a couple whose wedding I’m shooting next year. I ordered a coffee brewed with the Chemex and nursed it while a dog stared at me.

 
 

Brunch At Wilson Street Pantry

Whenever friends visit Glasgow, I struggle to settle on where to take them for brunch. This is because Glasgow has so many good spots.

Scott and I found ourselves in the city centre—where options are a bit more limited—so we headed to Merchant City for brunch at Wilson Street Pantry.

The light was as lovely as the food and coffee.

 
 

Black Pine Coffee Has A New Home

Earlier this year I visited Pete at his pop-up coffee shop in Perth. He’s now graduated to his own space on Great Western Road.

I visited the first day Black Pine opened to show my support and get black coffee into my system. I know Pete’s done a lot of work since then. He’s commissioned a window mural, now offers an assortment of food and has improved the seating.

Now we have another great coffee spot in Glasgow! I’ll be in on Saturday when I’m meeting my wedding clients.
