Food and drink

Home to 130,000 students, Glasgow caters extremely well for its large proportion of the population on a budget. There’s plenty of choice for the budget gourmet with 400 or so eateries. And of course there are even more pubs, clubs and cafe bars.

Our own cafe bar serves hot food from breakfast through to the end of the day and always includes a vegetarian selection. Naturally, there’s also a wide choice of supermarkets and food stores throughout the city. So it’s easy to prepare good value food for yourself. Choose from British, French, Chinese, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Mexican, Mongolian, Moroccan and of course Scottish. There are many vegetarian and vegan options and some places cater for religious requirements.

Current top favourites amongst students include:

  • The Banana Leaf
  • Where the Monkey Sleeps
  • Burger Meats Bun
  • The 78
  • Stravaigin
  • Tea Rooms @ The Butterfly and The Pig
  • Delizique
