About Kelvingrove Cafe

In 1896 the Kelvingrove Café opened its doors for the first time and instantly became a favourite lunch spot for visitors to the recently finished Kelvingrove Park.

In 117 years it has had many different offerings but in 2013 we took it back to its Victorian roots and once again made it a contemporary European Grand Café. We are interested in knock out tastes and flavours that complement the social atmosphere of the café.

Great cocktails, lovely outside seating area which was covered to avoid rain spoiling our drinks. Can't wait to come back!

The genuinely warm greeting, and friendly & attentive service throughout our visit made for a great start to our afternoon. The staff are all superb, and the cocktails were very, very well made. I have no problem paying £10 for a drink which is prepared and presented well. It’s for these reasons we were happy to leave a generous tip. However, my one criticism is that the wine pricing is a little opaque. The menu does not specify the volume in ml's (or mention small / regular / large) there are only 3 prices (one assumes; Glass, Other Sized Glass, or Bottle). I asked for a "large Malbec" (I wasn't corrected that you only offer small or regular sized glasses) and since it was £11 I assumed (and I’d argue, fairly) a 250ml measure, which it definitely wasn't. The cocktails more than made up for that disappointment though :)

Excellent service from everyone involved. Felt safe but provided ample opportunity for socially acceptable inebriation.

I’m quite a regular customer of KG cafe, so for me the opportunity to go for brunch with friends meant recommending we went here - That was my first mistake! For starters, The lady who served us was low key aggressive and came across blatantly rude. Having ordered coffees, she came back with “are you actually going to order food?”. I had the scrambled eggs which I only hate half of because it was over cooked and tasteless. We were all extremely disappointed with our brunch. I definitely won’t be back and will not be recommending either.

We both ordered KC breakfast, when it arrived it was cold. A member of staff did apologise and ordered us fresh breakfasts, which we did enjoy. A bigger concern was when I went to the toilet there were no hand towels. I reported this to a member of staff however when I returned to the toilet before I left the restaurant, there was still no hand towels. It was not busy in the restaurant and there was more than enough time for staff to fill the towel dispenser. Very concerning in this time of a pandemic.

Great spot for brunch, very attentive staff. Food could have been delivered to our table a wee bit faster to be really hot, but apart from that, it was a great experience.
