We all do it – fall into routine. Especially for lunch.
Don’t beat yourself up. But do move away from that soggy tuna sandwich, put down last night’s left overs and step away from the humdrum look-a-like eateries on every corner. I did, and thankfully lunch will never be the same.
Fresh local produce and homemade baking
Away from the city-centre clones at the far end of the Trongate is Rose and Grants – a simple but inviting café/deli.
This friendly newcomer serves up fresh local produce, Bei and Nannini’s coffee (the good stuff) and scrumptious baked delights in relaxed surroundings that even include a few comfy sofas.
Made to perfection – your way
The food is fresh, made-your-way delicious. The huge front window is a bonus for the day dreamers and people watchers. For the hungry – their roast veg and hummus special sandwich on brown bread is a must-try flavour sensation (£2.95/£4.95).
And if you’re still set on that tuna sandwich, their tuna mayo with coriander and lime is a welcomed twist on a classic – and is never soggy! Or try the tasty tuna and cannellini bean salad with rocket (£4.50). Fantastic!
If you’re short on time, get it to go. You’ll save a bit of money taking it away so indulge in something sweet like an irresistible pecan slice or pear and walnut brownie – all homemade of course.
It’s Friday –so go on, treat yourself to something new at Rose and Grants. It doesn’t cost any more than possibly a few extra steps away from the ordinary into the extraordinary. Well worth it.
