Best for Dining alone - Expert review of Cafe Hula

An organic and fashionable oasis in the heart of Glasgow’s theatre land.

Café Hula is unpretentious and unassuming and very much part of Glasgow’s laidback café scene. Budget brunches, cheap omelettes, deIi-style sandwiches and Spanish and Moroccan fare fill up dozens of hungry and hungover workers and locals from morning until evening. I feel very comfortable when I come here, and can easily spend hours reading a newspaper over a Sunday brunch. It could easily fit into an Andalucian painting or even a funky Cuban village.

Food and drink: 

A mixture of risottos, burgers, stews, baked potatoes and salads, Café Hula also has an extensive wine list for such a small restaurant.

Recommended dishes: 

Last time I ate, I chose the Moroccan Lamb Casserole, which tasted like it came straight out of Marrakech.

Ambience: 

Laidback and easy-going, Café Hula does first name terms.

Service: 

Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Location: 

Around the corner from the Theatre Royal and Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Price advice: 

The starters are between £3 and £5 and main courses hover between £6 and £10. Its deli sandwiches are a great deal at £5

Other useful branches: 

A sister restaurant run by the same owners is around the corner from the old BBC building on Queen Margaret Drive in the West End. Check out North Star (108 Queen Margaret Drive; 0141 946 5365).
