Coolness: These folk roast their own coffee upstairs

Avenue Coffee (5♥) is on busy and eatery-filled Great Western Road, on the left as you head out of Glasgow toward the River Kelvin.

This is the home of Avenue Coffee's roaster, with which they roast their ethically sourced coffee weekly, for use at both of their shops. They also supply wholesale beans to other coffee shops and retail beans and subscriptions to home consumers via their website. Their Diedrich roaster is upstairs from the café area, surrounded by hessian bags of beans. It can be seen, along with weekly cupping sessions, from the shop floor.

All the main brew methods are available using the Avenue Coffee range including Rwandan, Ethiopian, Brazilian, Kenyan and Costa Rican single-origins, among others, as well as their own blends. The staff are keen to share their passion for coffee - they also run classes to help you hone your barista skills.

Similar to their Byers Road shop, the food available includes big weekend breakfasts, soup, pulled pork burgers, sandwiches, salads and cakes.

The décor of modern stonework and timber has a minimalist feel, warmed by the light that streams in through the floor-to-ceiling wood-framed windows and friendly staff. You can choose from seating inside and outside - a mix of chairs, stools and tables.
