Vegan feel-good bar in a central location - Edit

This is a good place to have breakfast or a snack in Central Glasgow: The place is clean, bright and they have a nice selection of freshly prepared smoothies as well as savory and sweet dishes. Prices are good and the food is quite healthy and tastes nice.

Some vegan places in Glasgow are quite edgy and rough; if you rather want a little feel-good place you should go here!

Pros: Nice food, Everything freshly prepared

Cons: Pretty standard vegan cafe, nothing particularly special about it

Brilliant new central Glasgow vegan cafe - Edit

Clean fresh new vegan cafe with wonderful freshly prepared delicious food and friendly attentive staff. Highlights for me are the BLT roll and the baking...... Mmm the baking. Scottish favourites such as Snowballs and Empire Biscuits are remade in jumbo vegan sizes and are terrific. Been here 4 times now and will keep coming back. Ace!

Pros: All vegan, Inspired dishes and smoothies, Have I mentioned the baking.......

Cons: None

wonderful! - Edit

We had the full breakfast which was very balanced with veg, potato scones and sausages. I had a coconut milk mocha which was delicious and we shared a croissant. It tasted just like I remember butter croissants to be as I haven’t had one in well over a year now. Thoroughly recommend! The staff were lovely and attentive too.

Lovely, friendly, wholesome - Edit

It’s one of those places that probably looks intimidating from the outside (aka ‘fancy’) but it’s actually super nice, welcoming, bright and has lots of great options. The seating arrangement is great for solo travellers too.

Everything looks really healthy but still feels indulgent. Not greasy or loaded with sugar or salt (except perhaps the cake). 3 dairy-free milk options. Lots of cake including raw. They even offer ‘regular’ ketchup and brown sauce with the hot meals, if that’s a concern.

Pros: early opening time, lots of choice, healthy

healthy - Edit

yes fresh both in decor and food.
great to see a bright new light in the glasgow vegan scene. when you walk into a bright cafe with smiling staff, first impressions is fresh food with the smell of fresh bread
Returned for a veggie breakfast and wasn't let down. Wow it's great to get a breakfast that isn't covered in oil or over fried. The addition of avocado and asparagus even made you feel you were getting some of those five a day that even vegans need.
Also had a wrap at vegfest which was packed with natural food and fantastic.

So good.

Pros: staff, healthy, choice

Pros: Healthy filling meals, good portions, Range of mains and snacks, Great vibe

Picnic - Edit

Picnic is a new, clean and friendly place with an emphasis on health - they have various juices & smoothies.
They also have oat milk which is a massive plus and is something every vegan place should have. No other milk works as well with coffee.
Food-wise they do soups, curries, burgers, salads, sandwiches/wraps and baked potatoes. They also do a good breakfast from 8-11.
They are probably most famous for their no-egg (scrambled tofu) mayo roll which is decent but not incredible.
The main issue is price here - it's definitely on the steep end of the spectrum. They are in an area of expensive rent (Ingram St) which explains some of this but £6.50 is quite high for a baked sweet potato and £9 is a push for a breakfast too. A slight reduction in these prices will reel in more customers and further promote veganism, even though I'm aware that the actual branding is understated and focuses more on health than veganism

nice little shop - Edit

I randomly stumbled across this place while walking through Glasgow. I decided to give it a try and I loved t so much I went everyday for the smoothies and the juices. As I was leaving Glasgow I picked up a banana muffin and it was literally the best muffin I've ever had in my life. Glasgow has a ton of vegan pubs so this healthy place was a little gem in the mist of it all.

Pros: the food , the staff, the wifi

Perfect! - Edit

Ideal place for a hungry vegan looking for somewhere to eat in Glasgow. Perfect if you’re changing trains and have some time as it’s less than 10 minutes walk from Queen Street train station.
Lovely BLT and pot of tea. A good range of menu items to choose from without being too many - it’s still difficult to choose!
Friendly, welcoming staff complete a perfect visit ☺️

Pros: Good location , All vegan, Good cake selection

Cons: I don’t live nearer

Tasty healthy vegan - Edit

Glasgow is spoiled for vegan eateries, but the many of the others specialise in burgers, vegan pizza etc.. Picnic aim for something healthier (but still delicious!), so it's a welcome addition. Love their cooked breakfast, and the bagels. It's not joyless healthy food, though - they have great cakes!

great place...delicious & healthy! - Edit

Really impressed with the selection offered. Particularly since every other vegan cafe in Glasgow seems to offer junk food. I loved the curry sweet potato with salad and the yellow smoothie. Tip!

Highly recommended! - Edit

Fully vegan beautiful, modern, bright, clean and tidy place at street level, accessible to everyone and dog-friendly too.

A+ grade at several levels: variety of well presented and well served, fresh and delicious food; raw cakes; gluten free cakes; croissants (yes, vegan croissants! it was the first time I had croissant in thirteen years! Thank you so much!); friendly and helpful staff; welcoming atmosphere; good music; cleaned toilets.

The only thing I would advice to change is to write on the menu board that the red lentil soup is hot/spicy and not your usual red lentil soup (the one I ate had big chunks of tomatoes, onions and other vegetables, and chillies, ginger and black pepper...). One of the people in my group was not able to eat it but they promptly replaced it by a no hot/spicy version. Brilliant customer service!

Can't wait to visit Glasgow again to eat at Picnic :D
I highly recommend this place!

Updated from previous review on 2017-08-29

Pros: Excellent food for everyone's taste, Very friendly staff and nice vibe, Good location, accessibility, dog friendly

Delightful place and food - Edit

Was visiting Glasgow on holiday recently and found this place via happy cow (which happened to be directly opposite to where we were staying).

Popped in to check it out and ended up coming back several times over the weekend, and managed to get through a good chunk of the menu. Spicy bean wrap packs a punch, the salads are great, and the desserts also really good. The burger dish on the menu (can't remember what it's called exactly) was by far my favourite though.

The place is chilled and the staff are very friendly which is always a bonus.

Pros: Food, Vibe, Staff
