274 High Street, Glasgow, G4 0QT
Anyone who knows Papercup Coffee will probably be familiar with their Great Western Road location – one which I have never actually visited. So when I saw they were opening a city centre location in May, the prospect of another new regular coffee haunt in my ‘hood was exciting. I finally popped in last week to sample their coffee and, of course, their cakes.
It’s tucked away on High Street, which is a pretty pleasant addition to this end of town. Inside is small, but there are plenty tables to sit down with friends for some breakfast or beverages. The decor is not to my taste, but shabby-chic lovers will rejoice over the interior. Their website describes their coffee shops as relaxed and unpretentious, which I can agree is how the High Street branch is presented. It’s super chilled.
Papercup roast their own coffee (which you can browse/buy from their website), so you’ll get a delicious cup of local, small-batch roasted coffee when you visit. It’s hard to find anything to complain about with regards to their drinks – they know their coffee and they’re doing it right. I ordered a latte; so smooth, and so delish. Rick ordered a pot of tea which offered a generous three cups and was also brewed very nicely.
I also ordered CAKE. Because how could I not. I asked where they get their cakes from and the member of staff who served me said they’re not baked in-house but are sourced locally. I went for the blueberry Bakewell, which I’d go as far to say I enjoyed equally as much as my latte. Rick had the ‘Biscuit Brownie’, which had some caramel in and was soft, fudgy and divine.
My first visit was a really pleasant experience and I’d definitely swing by for a morning coffee (and cake…) again soon. If you’re in the city centre looking for some good coffee, pay Papercup a visit. Thanks for reading!
