Just down the road from their fantastic shop is their equally good restaurant. Most starters & main courses are vegan & the menu changes seasonally so that us regulars can try something new. Comfortable atmosphere, watch your food being cooked by cheerful, knowledgeable staff. Main courses are £7 or £8, there are choices for smaller meals/appetites too. There are also special nights for Burns suppers, Valentine's day etc. Check out their website & get on their mailing list. The shop now delivers too. Positive Caroline Snow

Great choice of food and organic beer/wine in a venue with a lovelyambiance. Excellent customer service style - the waitress was very wellinformed about all the options for vegans on the menu and which beer/winewould compliment the food. Prices very reasonable for the quality provided- around £18 per head for a starter, main course, wine and tea. If you'rein Glasgow this is a veggie/vegan place not to be missed! Positive June Parsons

The food here was lovely and tasty. The menu was varied with plenty of choice. What we had was good size portions, filling and nutritious and I would definitely visit again. As a vegan the sweets menu was limited. Prices were reasonable, about £6.50 a main course and a bottle of organic wine was about £9. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and children were catered for.

This place is still going strong and hugely popular. We were spoiled for choice by the menu and the food was very good. The portions are big too, so only go here when you're hungry! We went for the burger and chips and the curry of the day, and both enjoyed the meal hugely. The atmosphere is cosy and relaxed, the prices reasonable. Sadly we didn't have time to linger, but this would make a lovely night out. Positive Anne

This is a lovely small cafe/restaurant. The menu is limited, but what's on it is very good. Again, the wine and beer list is small but interesting - they have a lovely Chilean wine which I would highly recommend. Relaxed atmosphere with excellent food, specials are always good and it's all at a very reasonable price. Be warned that if you don't book you'll have trouble getting a table at night.

This small (30-odd capacity) cafe/restaurant doesn't pretend great cooking, and it certainly lives down to its lack of pretensions. The menu is limited, the cuisine average at best, and the atmosphere is best described as disinterested. The Thai curry was supposed to be moderately hot, but proved very spicy. It was overcooked and presented on the plate without inspiration. The veggie burger tasted vaguely curry-like, wedged as it was between two huge buns and covered with a houmus sauce that did not complement it. In fairness, the North African side salad was tasty, but again it was let down by unimaginative presentation. To finish, a nice Bamboo coffee, perhaps? Well, sure, but then maybe you have a jar back at home, 'cos Grassroots no longer has it available. "We did once have it, but not any more." The service is adequate, but the staff do not give the impression they are too interested in the clientele. No smiles, no cheeriness. Price - three courses and a soda, approx. £12 per head. Sorry to be so negative, but quite honestly you can get a better veggie meal at numerous regular restaurants in Glasgow, many of which have vegetarian options, and at much the same price.

Relaxed atmosphere with excellent food, specials daily and at a very reasonable price. We had bean burittos with a salsa and guacamole and crostinni. Free water and excellent coffee. We couldn't finish the slice of vegan chocolate cake we had to finish. Positive Michael Lee
