To be honest with you I only came across this place, about 1 week prior to tonights visit as I was out walking and passed it and instantly added to my list.

I actually went in for dinner, but this is not a dinner place its more an Italian Cafe for snacks cake and coffee. On that note this place was good, as I wasn’t too hungry tonight so a snack was perfect.

The Food…

Soup £2.00 and Focaccia £4.50

I am not normally a soup fan, but today I thought lets have a soup (my family would be shocked to read this). It was tomato soup and was the perfect size as I still had the focaccia to eat.

The focaccia was very very tasty, the flavours were nice and worked really well.

For me this was a perfect combo for a light snack and I would have it again.

Portion Size : 5 (For a snack)
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 3

Toffee Fudge Cake £3.00 & Cappuccino (Large) £2.60

I asked the staff for a recommendation for the cake as I said I wanted something very sweet, so this cake was recommended.

This was very sweet and a perfect recommendation, so I would like to thank Carin and I cant wait to have this again.

The cappuccino was very good and worked well with this cake.

Overall

Tonight was a very nice visit, I am glad I found this little cafe as it was the perfect spot for what I needed.

If you haven’t visited here yet and fancy a nice Italian snack, do check them out.

27 Old Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G3 8RD

V: 27th August 2017     W: www.tantrumdoughnuts.com

Child Friendly: Yes      Accepts: Cash & Card


Since the start of the year, I have seen many bloggers talk about this place and its been on my list to visit for ages.

I have a mega sweet tooth, and from what I heard was these are very sweet…..perfect!

I am never in this area normally on the train or in a car passing here, but today I was as I was going of brunch at a near by restaurant.

Tantrum have two locations on this street, but one is where the doughnuts are made and the other is where they sell them.

 

The Doughnuts :

6 in a box £13.50

What I got :

  • 2 x Chocolate Truffle
  • 1 x Candied Bacon and French Toast Glaze
  • 1 x Crème Brûlée
  • 1 x Salted Honey Glaze Brioche ring
  • 1 x Espresso Martini

Overall :

Well it took me a little time to try each one, and no before you ask I didn’t eat them all in the one sitting or one night.

The flavours of each one was very strong, and how it was described is exactly how it tasted.

I will be stopping by again to get some more, as these could easily become addictive.

See you soon Tantrum!

Angels Cafe (Paisley, Glasgow) : Review

53C Paisley High Street

Child Friendly: Yes     Accepts: Cash & Card     Style: Bulgarian Cafe/Deli


I am always up for trying new styles of food, and I was recently given some free samples from a newly opened Bulgarian Cafe so I couldn’t wait to try what I got.

I have never tried anything Bulgarian, or even heard how Bulgarian food, sweets etc taste so this would be an interesting experience for me.

I couldn’t comment on atmosphere etc as I haven’t visited this cafe in person, I was only given some samples to try. If I do get to visit, I will give you a full review.

I was given 3 samples so here is what I thought.

This was my favourite out of the three items I got to sample, mostly due to it having feta cheese as its one of my fav cheeses.

This was basically a soft bun with some feta in the middle going down half way to the centre, this was very nice and very filling.

It was nice warm and also I left some to try cold, which was ok warm was much nicer.

This looks like a crossing…kinda…but it has a bun texture and inside in layers was a jam. The jam in this one I wasn’t told what it was, but it tasted like a rose jam to me.

I am not a fan of rose anything, so I took a little but it was nice again its better warm but yeah if it had other jams inside I would love to try them.

I as told this was like a sweet bread, I tried it as it is and with some butter.

For me it wasn’t very sweet more very plain and needed some jam or something on it but it was nice.

Overall :

Firstly I would like to thank Angels for the free samples.

I love trying new foods and would like to try and sample some more Bulgarian treats.

As I said this place is not long open, so pop in say hi and try something different.
