Fantastic cosy lunch spot - Edit

I think The Cran might just be my new favourite place in the West End! It's wonderful how homely and relaxed it feels inside this café - would recommend it to anyone wanting to wind down during lunchtime or in the early afternoon.
We had some tasty vegan sandwiches that came with a cold salad and the soup of the day - fabulous! And because there were soooo many good-looking vegan cakes on display, we couldn't resist treating ourselves to something sweet after, which (of course) turned out to be a good decision. (The salted caramel brownie and the peanut butter banana cake were to die for!)
The staff were lovely and welcoming, too, which definitely adds to the great atmosphere. Please visit and see for yourself how nice it is - I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

Pros: huge selection of vegan cakes and sweets

Cons: limited seating

Cosy, friendly, delicious - Edit

Visited The Cran yesterday during a trip to Glasgow, very cosy place that leaves a warm feeling. Super friendly and helpful staff, lots of great vegan options but unfortunately were out of some toastie ingredients by the time we arrived at 3:30ish. Lovely hot chocolate and chocolate cake, big vegan snowball, fair prices.

Pros: Delicious food, quite a bit of choice, Friendly staff

Cons: Not much seating, Ran out of some ingredients

Coffee and Cake Kings! - Edit

I love The Cran. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff who are always happy to help. Menu is always changing and they experiment a lot with new things - always something tasty to try! Can never resist the coffee and cake too - coconut milk lattes are the best!

Great Breakfast - Edit

I was staying in Glasgow for a few days, and I loved this place so much that I came here for breakfast twice in a row. Everything was so delicious and the coffee was fantastic! The first day I had one of their blueberry danishes and a green smoothie and the second I had their yogurt pot with a cappachino. My non-veggie husband was impressed too.

lovely staff and amazing food - Edit

This place is a gem. So pretty inside and with wifi. The doughnuts and croissants are a must, and the sandwiches look great. The staff were absolutely lovely and full of suggestions.

Downsides are limited seating and no toilets

FinniestonHouse 18 Jun 2017 - Thanks so much for your lovely review! Unfortunately the lack of toilet limits the amount of seating we are allowed so it's a vicious cycle. We hope to install a loo for customers in the future. Many thanks again and hope to see you soon xx

West endy vibe - Edit

Clearly a lot of time and effort has been put into this cafe. The decor was like an interesting shabby chic barn, the sandwiches were tasty and filling and the cakes and pastries were mouth watering.
The only down side was there really wasn't enough seating, and it was sad to see people walking out without trying the food because of that. Hopefully with a few more seats this place will be a great success.

ScranAtTheCran 13 Jul 2017 - Thanks so much for leaving your comments and we're so glad you enjoyed your food! Unfortunatey as we dont have a toilet, we are limited to how many seats we are allowed to have in store -- we are hoping to refurbish our basement in future to increase our capacity! Hope to see you again soon x

nice breakfast and lunch option - Edit

Always good to feel.welcome I'm a cafe and smiling staff always make you feel good.
had an event at he SEC so popped in for brekkie (BLT) and a takeaway lunch (ham salad). both were great wee bits of extras, harissa or sauerkraut, bit made with nice ? and plenty of salad. the coffee was also good and if you just are looking looking for lunch/takeaway I'd really really recommend it.

Pros: staff, good vibes, tasty food
