When Gordon Street Coffee launched last year as a small batch roaster in the heart of Glasgow, I was intrigued and immediately paid it a visit.
Sadly, despite a number of visits since then, I still can’t get to grips with their coffee. Their house blend just doesn’t float my boat and I don’t think they make their espresso particularly well.
Still, they serve food so today I decided to stop in, have some breakfast and give the coffee another go. Still no dice on the coffee front, I’m afraid.
I ordered a link sausage roll with brown sauce, as is often my way. The friendly counter folks soon delivered this on a smart little plate.
This proved really good eating with high quality sausages on a fresh morning roll. I was very pleased with it.
So overall, I like Gordon Street’s schtick, the smart interior and I was impressed with their breakfast roll. I’d like to love their coffee but so far I just don’t. I’ll keep trying, though.
