A lovely addition to Byres rd. Like what they done with the space and mirrors. Coffee served by the book and was very tasty only complaint cups a bit small for us Glasgow folk..and a tad pricey but worth a visit.

We visited the Avenue for an early morning breakfast and Coffee. The cafe had only just opened, so was quiet, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was to a good standard and very tasty. The coffee on this occasion was a little disappointing for such well known craft coffee roaster and quality cafe.

Popped in for a coffee on sons recommendation and so glad we did. Probably the best coffee I have ever had. The soup and cake was also amazing. Will be in here every time I go back to Glasgow as son lives nearby.

We walked past Avenue Coffee and decided to stop by for a quick bite and warm drink. The staff were very friendly and food tasted freshly prepared. There were at least three vegetarian options on the menu. The tart with salad was beautiful - full of flavour and warming. I would certainly return. Upstairs is quite cramped and sitting on... More

The coffee here is amazing. Probably my favourite in Glasgow and the menu probably isn't student budget but is really great small bites!

Just been in for breakfast. The table was grubby. The cup for my tea was filthy, i used a paper cup instead. The cheese was OFF. I left everything and we won't be back. Totally disgusting. Go elsewhere on Byres road, there are plenty of places to choose from.

Ordered a double espresso this morning and unfortunately it was too sour and undrinkable. May be something to do with the coffee beans used or the way it has been prepared. Other than that it's a nice place and staff are really friendly just disappointing for an espresso drinker.

Conveniently located close to the undergound and stays open to 7pm. Good strong coffee and quality baking. A good range of hot food available. A small seating area overlooking the street and more tables up the stairs. Prices a little steep.

I have frequently visited Avenue coffee and have found the coffee and food to be excellent and the staff are professional and pleasant. Their coffee and delicious home made scone are great. I love going there and it has a very nice atmosphere.
