The Grind House, Pollokshields

It was time to get out of the house for a wander and blow off some cobwebs and a serious dose of the mehs for us. This dull weather is getting us down, so we do what we always do and pick a new place to visit.

The Grind House is in Pollokshields, on Darnley Street and a short walk from both Pollokshields East and West railway stations. Inside is the usual modern cafe look, clean and tidy and busy.


A wide menu, would this be too much variety? We chortled at the listing of chips as new. OK, maybe new for in here but still worth a sensible chuckle.

What we ate

Full breakfast – bacon, link sausage, potato scone, black pudding, 2 eggs of your choice, smoky beans, tomato, mushroom, and sourdough served with tea or coffee. (£10.20) Now, this is a breakfast and a tattie scone as well – far too many places use hash browns when a potato scone is needed. Very happy with the meal as well as the tea strength.

Halloumi – 2 poached eggs, avocado, halloumi, pomegranate and chilli butter on toasted sourdough (£8.50). A good feed with a spicy kick, not too much just enough for a tickle. Perfect poachies as well.

Next time some stuffed peppers and a strawberry tart we think.



Friendly service and good to see a busy place. Clean and tidy as well. Food arrived quickly and freshly cooked. Happy, full bellies.
