I feel I’m perhaps starting to exhaust the early morning options between Queen Street station and the office where I often lurk in Glasgow, but I was glad to spot iCafe on Sauchiehall Street, to which I hadn’t previously been. I popped through their automatic doors into their smartly appointed cafe.

Their coffee, a house blend from Matthew Algie, was prominently positioned and available in retail bags. It didn’t hit the spot with me, though, as is often the case with Algie coffees.

For the sustenance element, I chose a bacon and egg bap. It was interesting to note that the turkey rasher was their preferred approach.

The bap soon appeared, delivered by the friendly and smartly aproned counter man. The turkey bacon was tasty but the scrambled egg was bland and under-seasoned. The bap was pretty ordinary, too.

So overall, iCafe was decent but a touch underwhelming. It’s a tidy and friendly place and clearly very popular, but it didn’t particularly float my boat.
