The best sexy sandwich in town

When you discover something amazing, you should share it. This is especially true for good food.

Juice Garden in GlasgowThe Juice Garden on Renfield Street wins Glasgow’s best sandwich. Actually that’s not totally true because it’s not just one sandwich, it’s a wide variety of deliciousness.

Their awesome avocado, falafel-filled Moroccan magic and oh-mega tuna are all absolutely heavenly. And that’s just the beginning – there are loads of  other perfectly formed sandwiches to choose from. Even better, these tasty sensations are packed with nutritious goodness.

And as the name suggest, they also do an impressive selection of juices, shots and smoothie shakes. Today’s fav is the botanical boost juice – but sherbet lemonade and blue banana are also on my must try list.

Healthy is the new sexy

The Juice Garden says healthy is the new sexy and they’ve got the juice to prove it. From detoxifying to skin boosting or slimming down, their health and beauty drinks will have you looking and feeling fab. And if you need a little pick-up-up, try one of their juice shots.

It’s also a really lovely hang out – literally. Relax in their hanging circular chair or plunk down on the comfy flowerpot seats.

Don’t fret if you’re not in the city centre because these sexy sandwiches are also coming to the West End soon.

So go on, treat yourself to something scrumptiously good.

Riverhill to the lunch rescue

Riverhill Coffee Bar in GlasgowBreakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day.  And while it does set me up,  lunch is definitely not to be snubbed.  After all, it’s what keeps me going.

I want to savour every moment of that sacred hour when I step away from work to enjoy something good.  So I head to Riverhill Coffee Bar centrally located on Gordon Street.

Small but mighty tasty

Delightful desserts at Riverhill Coffee Bar in Glasgow Small but serving up a variety of mighty delicious food, it offers everything from sandwiches served on the most beautiful breads (hmmm ciabatta), to intriguing salads and an impressive selection of desserts.

Yes, dessert is a lunch must-have! Because who can resist ‘hot n horny chocolate cake’ – especially at only £2 a slice.

Even the traditional egg salad sandwich is beautifully presented wrapped up in paper and string – a wee edible present.  If you want to try something a little more exotic, their shrimp salad sandwich on a luscious brown roll or beautiful bulgur wheat, lentil and feta salad are delish.

With an ever-changing menu, I’m spoiled for choice.  And coffee lovers will not be disappointed – their Dear Green coffee is truly a beautiful thing.

Staff as sweet as their treats

And the icing on this sweet, sweet delight – the friendly staff are as lovely as the food.   And it’s all at a great price;  my sandwich and  drink comes to a very reasonable £4.  Seats are limited but take away is available.

So go on – put a spring in your step, liberate lunch and treat yourself to something wonderfully scrumptious.
