I come in here first thing in the morning on my way to work, there's queues out the door and the staff are still super friendly and always service with a smile, especially the manager who I have seen working front of house every single day!

Twice now in the past two months I've had a bad experience at this Costa. The first time I ordered my coffee and then stood around for ten minutes while everyone behind me received their drinks. Finally someone thought to ask if I had ordered. Today I stood in the queue to order and then was skipped when I finally... More

On my visit, it was very busy but served quite quickly and efficiently. Used tables could have been cleared and cleaned quicker. Coffee great and food typical of all Costa's.

Coffee and mid-morning pastry was my goal, and Costa met that nicely in Glasgow as well as in Dublin, London, and a few other places along the way through Europe.

The Coffee is ok, fairly standard but the premises is a bit rough, scruffy and the toilet was out of order leaving only the disabled toilet which was dirty and had no toilet paper. A contrast to the busy Costa Coffee at 50 Bothwell Street which I visited earlier in the day.

Costa is a brand that you always know what to expect, and this one doesn't disappoint. Great location, handy outside seating and a friendly, efficient service, this is a good coffee shop experience.

Stopped in with cousins for a wee hot chocolate. It is so creamy, chocolaty, smooth, rich and the marshmallows are full, fluffy pillows from heaven, the whipped cream is thick and holds up to the hot liquid chocolate and topped off with a sprinkle of cocoa. To die for!! Be careful, it's addictive! Great place, friendly staff, must go to!

This is part of a good chain of coffee shops. The coffee is good, the baking excellent and the baristas are obviously recruited and trained to a high standard. I think it is the best of its type - you also get real cups and cutlery!!
