Adelphi Tria Cafe

As I’ve said many times before, I’m a huge fan of community cafes of one type or another. On a visit to the Glasgow Homelessness Network, I was delighted to find the Adelphi Tria Cafe on the ground floor of their offices in the Adelphi Centre, which is on the southern bank of the Clyde.


I was joined today by John who was questing for the first time.

We found the cafe quite simply appointed with a range of tables and seating options to suit flexible needs. There was a strong Franco-Scottish influence with flags of both countries prominent. It became clear that the main chap in the kitchen was French.

We were visting bright and early on a Thursday morning. John had already eaten, but I was in need of a breakfast roll so ordered a bacon and black pudding doubler.


This was soon with me look neat and tidy. It featured a typically good local morning roll. The filling was profuse and really good, with the two generous slices of black pudding very good indeed. I was impressed.

So overall, I was well impressed with the Adelphi Tria Cafe. It’s a style of place that I highly value and it served me a very good breakfast roll that set me up for the day ahead. I’d be happy to visit again. Make sure to pop in if you’re in these parts.
