People of Glasgow’s West End it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee, as independent coffee roasters Grain and Grind has launched their latest venue and seventh Scottish store in the area. With five branches located in Glasgow’s Southside, those north of the river can now find out what all the fuss is about.
Marking their foray into the west of the city, Grain and Grind’s West End store has everything a coffee-lover needs, seven days a week – from freshly roasted coffee, plenty of brownies and bakes, sandwiches and a dog-friendly, welcoming ethos. The West End cafe’s opening on Old Dumbarton Road aims to bring the brand’s high-quality coffee to a new audience, just a stone’s throw from Kelvingrove Art Museum and the busy Finnieston strip.
Co-owner and business founder, Matthew Mustard, said, “We’re delighted to officially launch our latest Scottish store, marking a new era for us in Glasgow’s West End. Our small business has truly thrived in the city’s Southside, and we thought it was about time we gave the good people of the West End a taste of our artisan roasts!
“We opened our doors in Battlefield in 2018, never expecting that one day we would operate seven stores in Glasgow and Inverness and that’s all down to our loyal customers. We’ve been so supported in the Southside with our five stores and we hope to bring a welcoming, friendly neighbourhood cafe vibe to our West End store and of course – top notch coffee.”
The bright, modern space seats 45 customers with the potential for outdoor seating in summer. Plus, the new West End venue has its benefits as it’s the perfect spot to grab a coffee with friends before a stroll through Kelvingrove Park or to catch up on emails with Scottish roasted coffee from Grain and Grind to keep you going.
Maintaining their small business ethos, Grain and Grind first installed a roaster in their Battlefield shop back in 2018, before growing the business so much that they moved their roastery to a larger location in Inverness. Their coffee offering includes over 20 roasts, each one carefully selected by Grain and Grind’s resident roaster John, who uses traditional roasting methods to perfect their signature flavours.
You can find Grain and Grind’s other Glasgow venues in Battlefield, Cathcart, Giffnock, Strathbungo and Victoria Road, Govanhill.
