Kicking off 2018 strong with some heavy hitters about to make coffee waves on the other side of town. It's the brave boys of EAST Coffee Co. who have just gone all in on an Eastside coffee shop and are the latest to join The Good Coffee Cartel squad.
Niall and Sean are a creative duo who have stripped the building back to its good old Glaswegian roots, exposing beautiful cornicing and vintage wallpaper and adding their charm to the mix. Having gained experience in other great coffee shops like Meadow Road and Artisan Roast, the boys started running their own pop up coffee service for gigs and festivals before securing the perfect premises in Dennistoun. A handy pair, they then spent a couple of months demolishing and rebuilding the interior, to create a fantastic outpost for good coffee in the east end. They also have plans to build out the back room into a lifestyle store featuring cool products from some interesting artists and designers.
As well as slinging some of our banging Colombian Excelso espresso, they're also executing a beautiful wee menu including pancake stacks & home-made banana bread. The idea is to have dishes that are both delicious and healthy - so expect lots of fruit and veg featuring the menu as it develops.
Sean and Niall also run a pretty good insty when they're not too busy. Get it checked by clicking here: The EAST Instagram
