Eating my way through Glasgow – Riverhill Coffee Bar

Tiny….but growing.

Eat, Pray, Love.
Eat, Dance, Bliss.

E and I like to eat.  We walk a lot, so we think we can (eat) and I figure she is still growing.  It works for us.  As long as my Fitbit goes over 10,000 steps that day.

We thought we would duck in somewhere new.  We were peckish, well downright ravenous, and another place we checked was “full”.  On the recommendation from a friend at Mulberry (like, handbags!) we went here.  OMG what a delight.

The place is tiny; like so tiny that there is a bar with some seats against the wall and we were lucky enough to get two spots.  But crowded as it is winter and we all have coats, scarves, mittens, hats, bags.  And we feel guilty because the place keeps filling up….

We have a sandwich each; and whatever they put in the mayo I could eat every day.  Enhanced the chicken sublimely…and the roll was perfect crunch outside and squish on the inside.

Did we have dessert?  Yes, one to go and one for a gluten-free friend of ours.  The Snickers Brownie was eaten later than day (in another coffeehouse) and was drool-worthy.  At 10 that night we were hungry again, and ate our friend’s gluten-free lemon and poppyseed muffin.  Like a dessert.  (Sorry, Cath!)

Top marks for this gem; and will be happy to see it expanded (as indicated).  Oh, the coffee was great and there was a raspberry green tea that smelled like a berry bush, too!
