Quality Still Shines, At Stravaigin Cafe Bar

Stravaigin Cafe Bar on Gibson Street was popular when I was a student at Glasgow Uni, back in the 80s.
Time flies, and I was back checking out my old stomping grounds recently. So of course I had to drop into Stravaigin.
I'm happy to report that nothing had changed. At all! OK, I'm older with greying hair and a wee bald bit on top... ;-)
But the staff are stiff young and trendy, very friendly and working like FIENDS, cause its just as popular as ever.
The food is the same classy mix of much-loved comfort food and a few continental touches. Quality counts for a lot, and Stravaigin Cafe Bar oozes the stuff.
I have to admit I took a pic inside, and its now my screensaver at work, back down here in London... But my heart belongs to Glasgow, for sure!
