With Glasgow’s Queen Street station having re-opened following the first phase of its redevelopment, the enterprising types at Luckie Beans have taken the opportunity to open a little coffee stall on the main concourse. After disembarking an early train from the east, I popped along to give it a try.
In between an AMT and a Cafeology cart, Luckie is one of three outlets currently trading. Roasting in Berwick upon Tweed, they’ve been a regular fixture at many markets and festivals over recent years.
This was the first time I’d tried their wares so was keen to see how they were.
I opted for my standard espresso (£1.80) which was promptly made by the efficient counter man.
I sipped as I walked towards my first meeting of the day.
The coffee proved solidly decent although their Love Lane blend didn’t really allow clean flavours to emerge. It was good but not great.
So overall, I was glad to finally try Luckie Beans. Good luck to them during their tenure at Queen Street. They’re certainly selling the best coffee at the station but I wasn’t completely convinced by their offering. Give them a go next time you need a ‘spro of the go.
