Glasgow West End: Pat's Guide to Eating Out: Restaurants, Cafes and Bistros: French

La Patisserie Francoise, 138 Byres Road. This restaurant has expanded from its original tiny proportions responding to the demand for an impressive array of tempting pastries and gateaux. A pleasant spot for lunch or coffee. (£) You can also buy patisserie cakes to take away. Julie Gorevan chose the very best selection for her birthday tea in January, 2000 - it was a great party with the table set to perfection.
September, 2006. Still the great cakes and beautifully refurbished. The soup is the best - especially the vegetable, just delicious. Lovely staff including Zana from Monte Negro.
