Next to the University Library on the south side of George Square, the cafe is sizeable and has comfortable chairs and sofas and quiet corners for conversations and for groups to socialise.
Open to the general public to just walk in, and generally blissfully quiet outside mealtimes.
The food is standard good cafeteria fare and the coffee is fine.
However do check the opening times on the website as they vary throughout the year.
Open on weekdays during university vacations.
