Nice clean wee local restaurant with friendly staff and good food. Good for lunch and all day breakfast and if taking an older relative it is good that they will allow a children's portion.

We stopped here for lunch as we arrived in Milngavie. We had soup and sandwich, prices were reasonable and the food was delicious. Staff was helpful and called our innkeeper to pick us up. Highly recommended as the place was crowded.

Description
At Cafe Alba we offer a varied menu of quality fresh food that is excellent value for money, served by our friendly welcoming team. To ensure the high standards of dishes of which we are proud, we use as many Scottish products as possible; especially fish from Scottish waters and meat from local farmland.
Alongside our extensive breakfast and lunch menu, which is available from 9am - 5pm, we offer our own range of delicious home baking ensuring that there is much to enjoy whatever time of day you choose to visit.
We are open 7 days a week, so whether you are looking for one of our famous breakfasts, a lunchtime meal or a freshly baked scone to accompany your cappuccino, Café Alba is for you
