First Review by CLRtraveller

lovely - Edit

We had 1 soup and toastie, and 1 pakora kebab - both very tasty. Friendly staff. Pick your toastie from the chiller and take it to the counter to order. Nice hummus and a spicy dip with the kebab. Spicy lentil soup great too

Pros: near the park, portion sizes just right for us, tap water was brought to the table

Great place for toasts - Edit

It’s cool that they have toast and spread on the menu. It’s great for a light snack, and a good place for tea and lattes.

Outstanding! - Edit

Lovely light and open cafe, amazing oat milk lattes and the best pakora known! Fresh food to go, wide selection of cakes and biscuits and a very reasonably priced menu with soup and sandwich deals. This is quickly becoming a go to place! Warm and welcoming service always.

Pros: Delicious homemade healthy food. Staff lovely.

Cons: Absolutely none!

good food, tasteless coffee - Edit

The yoghurt parfait was delicious. Really fresh with good granola and fruit chunks. Sadly my almond cappuccino was really tasteless. Let down by very poor quality coffee.

Pros: delicious food, lots of choice

Cons: quite pricy, very poor coffee

Was impressed with their cake selection today, have had a sandwich from here before and thought it was ok.

Good Toastie, Bad Hot Choc - Edit

I've visited the V&V on two separate occasions and got two quite contrasting impressions.
The first time I went, I just sat down to enjoy a hot drink. I opted for a hot chocolate with coconut milk, and was, quite literally, bitterly disappointed. (I've had coconut hot choc before and I really like it, so I'm not quite sure what they did to make it taste so ... sad.)
Nevertheless, I also wanted to try their food, so I gave the place another chance a few weeks later. This time, I skipped the drink and went straight for their signature dish, the vegan Pakora Toastie. Wow, what a difference! It was a wonderful meal, very flavourful and utterly satisfying, and it managed to reconcile whatever grudge I was holding before.
Now that they're completely vegan, I will visit again to try their new food. The pastries and cakes also looked very good whenever I walked past, so it's very likely that I'll treat myself to a feast.

Getting better - Edit

This wee coffee place started of as vegetarian with loads of vegan options. It if now fully vegan and expanding their product range. I love their meal deals, you can get a nice fresh sandwitch, toastie or pasta salad with a drink of your choice (hot drinks included) and a snack for £5. The they are sooo tasty!

Pros: expanding vegan range

Quality - Edit

Great little place where I had a fantastic pakora toastie. Sounds hearty but was really quite light for a growing lad like myself. So nice though and tasted oh so beautifully fresh.
Good selection of items to take home too (v haggis pie for me).
Service was great, nice folk and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.
From outside it looks like there are only a few tables but there are more upstairs.

Pros: Great service, nice atmosphere. Food was fresh, ve

Cons: Wasn't really any cons, side salad could have been

quick breakfast - Edit

A short stop for a VLT before a meeting in Glasgow.
Really nice cafe chilled and well laid out. Opted for a the VLT which was really good. Plenty of salad with the Tempeh and a small side of slaw. The roll was really tasty and the coffee was decent as well.
I look forward to coming back for lunch.

Pros: staff, fresh, healthy

New vegetarian/vegan cafe in West End - Edit

I visited V&V on the day after opening day, about 1 pm, and they appeared to be doing good business, with many tables occupied both on the ground floor and upstairs. You order at the counter, then sit down, and the food is brought to you. There are lower prices for takeaway. The menu indicates vegan items with a (V). There were two soups of the day – I had spicy fennel and courgette with a slice of crusty bread and small roll for £3.45. The soup was tasty and nicely spicy. The vegan yogurt parfait sounds really good (with coconut yogurt, granola, coconut blossom syrup, fresh berries and Omega 3 seeds, £5.25). If I were going to still be in Glasgow tomorrow, I would definitely come and try it. Also on the menu: muesli bread with maple syrup and fresh berries, olives and hummus with bread, sandwiches, panini, jacket potatoes (white or sweet) with toppings, coffees (including drip), teas and hot chocolate, plus pastries and cakes, several of which are vegan. I also ordered a sandwich and piece of cake to take away. The sandwich was described as roasted red onion hummus and salad, but the red onions were raw. It was a small piece of good-sounding parsnip and lime cake, which I haven’t tried yet.
Non-vegan foods are “free-range” eggs (says the menu) and dairy products from cows that “are set out to pasture nine months of the year” (says the website).
Also for sale are cookbooks, children’s books, chocolate bars and special vinegars. I’m sure there will be some growing pains and some learning, but I hope V&V does well.

Pros: several vegan items, drip coffee available
