I’ve been pleased to see the city’s excellent selection of cafes further bolstered in my absence. As well as the likes of Detour and Oqo, I recently bumped in to Gooseneck as I wandered in the western half of the city centre.
Trading from the cafe premises that were once home to Mademoiselle Macaron on Grindlay Street, Gooseneck has retained much of the look and feel of the place although the signature French detailing is no more.
I was in the mood for a quick coffee so ordered my usual espresso (£2.40).
They’re using beans from Arbroath roastery Sacred Grounds. Today’s shot was from Ethiopia. It was delivered to an excellent standard with a characteristically bright and jammy shot.
Their food offering looked on pretty good form, too, with an eye-catching falafel stuffed pitta and some good looking cakes.
Overall, Gooseneck looks to be a really welcome addition to the coffee and light lunch options in this neighbourhood. I was highly impressed with the coffee so make sure to give it a look when next you’re in these parts.
