On this visit to Glasgow, it wasn’t breakfast time, but I had the same swift eating requirements as I so often seem to do in this city, so in between the train station and my meeting destination I had time for a brief stop at City Sandwich, on West Regent Street.
The place is a little below street-level cafe, offering simple lunchtime fare, and catering to the needs of those watching their weight, with a range of low calorie options.
They offered three soup choices: lentil, spicy vegetable; and Scotch broth, which is the one I chose. I added a pastrami and Swiss cheese sandwich, to accompany it.
Things were with me in a flash, looking good. The broth was good, hearty fare. It was just the warming stuff that I was after.
The sandwich wasn’t quite so good, but the bread was fresh, multi-seeded brown. The filling could have used a little more pep, though.
So overall, I liked my visit to City Sandwich. They do quick, tasty grub, and keep service brisk. It was just what I was after as I zipped across town. I’d happily pop in again.
