Nice coffee and friendly staff. The cakes were awful - really dry as if they had been lying out for a long time.

Just by looking at the outside you know Avenue Coffee won't disappoint. Stopped off for lunch. The staff were very friendly. Our food was very good but it was the coffee which was the stand out. We had to have a second cup.

Lovely little coffee shop in Glasgow's West End. The coffee itself is lovely and there is a fabulous range of cakes and snacks. We had to try the scones because they looked lovely and had them toasted. A new experience we are sure to repeat.

We just popped in for coffee, which was excellent, and some nibbles. It was crowded, completely full, and we went to the shelf upstairs, where people have to squeeze by one another, but that gives atmosphere and friendliness. The service was also friendly and just...More

So glad we stopped at Avenue Coffee and that they had a table free. It's a very small place and clearly very popular. The coffee was excellent as was the hot chocolate and the service was very friendly. We never felt rushed. The cakes looked...More

I love this place. Their coffee and food is always spot on. Staff is friendly and attentive. The only drawback is that it gets crowded, so might not get a seat.More
