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.
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.
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.
This coffee shop caught my eye while walking around Manchester. It’s a design store and speciality coffee bar. I had a long black and coffee cake. If I lived in Manchester I’d be a regular!
I needed all the fuel before a long day at the Ignite off-site in London. Black coffee and croissant at Notes coffee shop did the job.
Glasgow Coffee Festival returned for another year. Rab and I went on the Sunday as we had a wedding on Saturday. I’m always tired the day after a wedding as it’s both physically and mentally demanding, so coffee was definitely needed!
We complimented our flat white with cakes from CakeSmiths, then washed it down with #rawsoda. We also saw a lot of cute dogs.
Last weekend, Rab and I did a small coffee shop tour in Glasgow. We visited McCune Smith, Spitfire Espresso and Meadow Road (and Tantrum Doughnuts).
McCune Smith: I had a tasty coffee from the AeroPress, but the service was really slow.
Spitfire Espresso: Great sandwiches to compliment your coffee.
Meadow Road: Nice decor and interesting floor, which makes for a good photo backdrop.
Tantrum Doughnuts: Krispy Who? This is where to get your doughnut fix.
I caught up with Rab, a talented Instagram photographer, over coffee in Artisan Roast. His coffee left a pretty pattern in the coffee cup. That’s the only excuse you need to take a photo.
