Papercup Coffee High Street (5♥) is nestled in amongst the University of Strathclyde in central Glasgow and does great coffee. This isn't at all surprising given owner Graeme Crawford has been serving up great coffee for some years from their established shop on Great Western Road.
Papercup is also one of Scotland's finest roasters so you'll be served their small batch roasted and seasonally changing coffee. They offer different roasts and beans to suit different brew methods which include espresso, V60, aeropress and cold brew. You can also pick up a bag or two of beans to take home for your preferred home brew method.
The Papercup food menu is based on their ethical and clean approach and is all cooked in-house, so they can control the quality and use great local suppliers. From a bacon, runny egg and tomato chutney morning roll, to eggs with smashed pumpkin, charred leeks, alfalfa & seeds, to salads of kale, feta and hummus or a tuna mayo, pickled zucchini and cheddar sandwich, your options are creative, healthy and tasty. You can also grab a smoothie or choose from a range of cakes, some of which are gluten-free and vegan.
While the High Street shop has it's own identity, it also shares the down-to-earth, no fuss feel with its sister shop in Great Western Road. Simple white walls and old school utilitarian tables and chairs are pepped up by the colourful tiled servery. There's also a small selection of home brew equipment on sale including drippers, aeropresses and filters.
