Thanks for your review. Our classic aluminium US Navy chairs can indeed be a bit chilly on a cold Glasgow winters day, so we have now added seat pads. Do check them out next time you are passing.

Great place for a coffee and a delightful selection of cakes. Yes it's small with only a couple of tables but it is spotless with friendly service and the choices....... Delicious!

A family-run, stylish cake and coffee shop in the south side of Glasgow, packed full of delicious treats. I love the biscotti biscuits and red velvet cupcakes, and the bakery offers a wide variety of gluten-free options too. I have used Humble Pie many times...More

After hearing great reviews I was really looking forward to my cupcake but I ended up with a very dry tasteless piece of cardboard my chocolate orange cupcake had no taste and the sponge just crumbled as if it was stale.

Susan Brown opened Humble Pie Bakery Ltd in 2010. After thirty years as a teacher and thirteen years after first visiting the then fledgeling Magnolia Bakery in Manhattan she took the plunge with her first commercial venture which has been enthusiastically received, and to much critical acclaim, by fans of traditional baking. Susan's aim is to make cupcakes that taste as delicious as they look beautiful. The recipes are her own, developed and refined over the years - her cakes and butter cream are lighter and less sugary than the American equivalents and more suited to the UK palette. In only its second year of business, Humble Pie won the Regional and National Gold Award for 'Best Individual Cake in Scotland' at the 2012 Scottish Baker of the Year Awards, a competition voted for by customers and judged by a panel of master bakers. Unlike many of the current proliferation of 'virtual' cupcake businesses, Humble Pie is a real micro bakery and cake shop located in Bothwell, on the outskirts of Glasgow. At our stylish shop you can see and sample our cakes before ordering or just treat yourself to one of our cupcakes for fun, accompanied by one of our speciality hot beverages - we serve Tazo Teas, Nespresso Coffees and Spanish Hot Chocolate. Our cakes are baked fresh on site daily and have proved to be so popular we regularly sell out by the end of the day. We would be delighted to work with you to produce bespoke, hand crafted cakes for your special occasion, be it a wedding, christening or kids' party. Email Susan and book an appointment to come in and discuss your requirements. Our aim is to exceed your expectations and grow our network of delighted clients. Why not come and join us on Facebook.
