After having visited Gesso, the other day, I took another recommendation to visit nearby Patisserie Apostrophe, on Woodlands Road.

It was a very rainy/sleety lunchtime so I was more than delighted to be inside and out of the weather. The warmly welcoming interior of the place added to my enhanced sense of wellbeing.

Their menu covers the expected range of cafe classics with their cake and pastry counter straining under the weight of delicious sweet options. I stuck to my usual savoury leanings opting for their soup of the day, which was lentil, and adding a hummus falafel wrap.

I’d heard good things about their espresso, which is by Cardross roaster Home Ground. It was a complex blend that nicely hit the spot.



My food choices came presented as a busy lunch plate with tasty accompanying salad and coleslaw. The lentil soup was one of which your granny would have proud. It was deliciously flavour packed.

The wrap was very good, too, with a lightly crisp casing and profuse, tasty filling. It was a highly successful lunchtime combo that represented really good value.

So overall, I was impressed with Patisserie Apostrophe. Having only been open for a couple of months, their offering feels really well established and accomplished. I’d be happy to recommend this friendly place and look forward to visiting again.
