The Glasgow healthy food scene is growing bit by bit and I’m absolutely loving it! One of the latest additions is Picnic on Ingram Street in Merchant City. Their café is all vegan with lots of delicious and healthy things to choose from. I’ve been following them on Facebook for a while and couldn’t wait to pay them a visit. The place just looked amazing from the photos I’d seen.
Today after yoga at the lululemon Glasgow showroom with Marija we met up with Kamila and decided to give this newbie a try.
The central location of the café is great and they have definitely filled a gap in the food scene in Merchant City. There aren’t really any healthy eateries in that area. The café itself is bright and beautiful with lots of colour. I feel in love with the pastelly wall. How amazing is it? This little place definitely brightens up Glasgow with their interior.
The menu was jam packed with delicious options, everything from sandwiches, salads and curries to raw cake, juices and smoothies. I struggled really bad when deciding what to get, after choosing between one of their smoothies and raw cake Kamila helped me decide to go for the raw cake with a green tea. Like she said, how often do you get raw vegan cake? Not very often. I’ll just have to pay them another visit soon to work my way through the menu. Oh the burden!
We were all super happy with our choices and had a try of each others, all of it was so delicious. My chocolate and caramel cake was very tasty and not too sweet, which was nice. We sat there for a while just chatting away until we had to get on with our days.
I really loved my visit to Picnic and will definitely be dropping in for more visits in the future. Love that I have a new place in town to go to now.
