Eat Deli, Clarkston, near Glasgow

By all definitions, Eat Deli in Clarkston is a great cafe.  It’s decor is tasteful while the handwritten menus and the close seating give it an intimate feel. It sells artisan bread, brunch (a rare find), deli salads and an impressive range of cakes and traybakes. The Suki tea is served in a pot and although it’s not loose leaf (coming in one of those delicate tea bags) it is still a fine cup of tea.

It has received plaudits from Joanne Blythman (food critic and author) and awards from the Observer and the List.
