Amazing Bread! Amazing Coffee! All organic! Too good! There's not really anything more I can say... Maybe a little bit pricey but that doesn't matter to me here because the quality is soo good!

This place is a real treat ! Unbelievable bread that has sustained my blood sugar levels to power through surgery . Don't get me started on the pastries ! Diet devastation . The staff are amazing , coffee - great and the patrons nice wee locals who are worldly and down to earth . A wee little gem in dennistoun... More

My friend who is a local frequents this little cafe. The cake I had was a vegan chocolate and Beetroot cake and was absolutely delicious (especially for this heavy meat-eater). The coffee tasty! The staff friendly, engaging and have a good rapport with the locals.

Staff are always trying to do several things at one so this means no one gets good service. Design and cleanliness of the shop are so old and worn it really makes it an unpleasant place to consume food and drinks. Could be improved. Price is on par with city centre but not other Dennistoun cafes.

I've going to Tapa since it opened an eon ago now! The coffee is without exception always amazing.. The cakes are fantastic..

I've been into Tapa a few times since moving to the area. The products are really nice but pretty expensive. I understand vegan/gluten free are more expensive to make but when the staff aren't overly pleasant it probably isn't worth the extra.
