GOOD FOOD ETC, Glasgow

There are different opinions on what well-being is and what it is healthy.

For us the main contributor to health is food. Good food means good health.

Eating well has also different meanings to different people. In our opinion, it doesn’t necessarily mean avoiding certain kinds of food like pasta or meat. Good food is genuine, artisanal, with no artificial ingredients. Eating well to us is varying the good food you eat everyday.

The key here though is finding the good food. There is the place in Glasgow where you will find the good food everyday, and everyday different and varied, not only in terms of nutrient but also cuisine. East meets West in ETC. One day lunch special could be Italian meatball panini, the next day an authentic Thai dish.

You will find food that you might have not tasted before (have you tried their Sicilian arancini? Yum), and enjoy some familiar food: everything made with selected ingredients, fresh every day.

They even make their sausages! From the oil to the flour to the butter to the cheese; from A to Z, everything is the best quality and expressed at its best with great cooking.

The variety of cakes is superb, with some fixed choices like brownies, caramel shortcake or almond and blueberry cake, and some maybe especially baked for the day.

For those looking for gluten free treats, they often make gluten free or vegan cakes, and their hot chocolate is also gluten free in a classic, chilli or amaretto flavour.

Whatever good food means to you, We are pretty sure you will find it in E.T.C. Cafe.

The Italian Aperitivo lands in Edinburgh!

Aperitivo is not just having a drink before dinner.

Actually the real Italian aperitivo includes a generous buffet table and a good amount of chatting with friends and new people.

Aperitivo is having a drink and food before having more food and maybe a glass of wine- ah, the Italians! – but in a casual way, sometimes just after work before we go home for dinner, to catch up with friends and meet new ones.

For us – coming from Lombardy, region of Italy, where aperitivo is a big thing, to end (or start, or break) the week in a relaxed hence buzzy athmosphere, with a choice of food and a good drink – this is great news!

We miss aperitivo and are excited that Ristorante Isola (check out their Facebook page) is bringing Italian Aperitivo in Scotland.

Ristorante Isola–   85-87 Newington Road, EH91QW Edinburgh

We have already been delighted by the sublime dishes served in this Edinburgh little gem, with Sardinian specialities (unique in Edinburgh) using the freshest ingredients, everything prepared fresh. We would recommend this place every day and for any occasion.

If you haven’t been yet then don’t miss this wonderful deal and have a taste and feel of Ristorante Isola tomorrow night – Sunday 1st of May 2016 –  at 6.30 pm

Vquality at the Scottish Coffee Festival

premium, excellence, coffee, espresso, cup, scotland, italy, blend, venice, madeinitaly, caffe, doge, seasonal, limited, special, aroma, competition

Have a great time sipping premium coffee and support the farmers.

We are super excited to announce that in exactly a month we will exhibit in the Scottish Coffee Festival.

The festival has been organised by Chris Brown. We think he couldn’t have thought of a better combination of winning forces.

COFFEE The interest in coffee in all its aromas is growing at a great rate in the UK. People are not just looking for a generic cup of coffee anymore, they want to know where it comes from, taste it accurately, try different tastes and know more about how it’s done. It’s the perfect moment for an event like this one.

SCOTLAND Aye! This is the Scottish Coffee Festival.

GLASGOW We think like Chris that in all Scotland Glasgow is the perfect place for a Coffee Festival. That’s where we concentrate our business and where people are more receptive to events, big coffee scene, exciting and energetic.

CHARITY What’s best than having a great time and doing good at the same time? And having a great time for a good cause while tasting coffee? Tickets are only £8 for a whole day filled with entertainment, specialty coffee and even more to eat and drink.

Our roaster Caffe’ del Doge has been member of the Cup of Excellence since 2004. The Cup of excellence is a yearly competition where select cuppers choose the best coffee beans. Bernardo at Caffe’ del Doge purchases winning beans every year, and winning farmers are greatly supported.

BREWERY Informal but such cool places breweries are! and Drygate Brewery is very very cool.

We met Chris last night and he’s been great, we are sure it will be a success. Thanks Chris!

We’ll be there with a choice of different blends and we are working on the whole experience in this right moment! Stay tuned because we will be posting updates till the big day. Our coffee, roasted in Venice following the traditional Venetian method, is like you’ve never had before!

Go check the festival website for more information and to get your tickets now, 29th of November is just a month away!

The Little Cafe: Grand Gourmet and Cuba in Glasgow!

The Little Cafe has a lot inside!

In its spacious and clean interior well lit by big windows, tables outside and the Kelvingrove museum as a view, you can taste delicious food (the best pizza we’ve ever had in the whole country, just like we italians love it, and for the price of a cafe!) and our Rialto Gran Gourmet Coffee or if you feel adventurous a magnificent single origin: CUBA!

Cuba is 100% Arabica, which means sweeter taste, many can drink it even without sugar, and as all our coffee is supplied directly and fresh by our roaster Caffe Del Doge in Venice. All beans are traced and Cuba in particular is a selection of the CUP OF EXCELLENCE.

You better be quick because it’s going fast! 

Rialto Gran Gourmet has a great personality, intense aromas which combines well with milk in a nice cappuccino perfectly foamed by the amazing guys at The Little Cafe. The beans are roasted and then cold blended according to the Venetian methods.

Nothing can deceive expectations at The Little Cafe, be it food, drinks, service, location or comfort. All staff is friendly, smiling, helpful and knowledgeable, and this guys know how to make italian coffee and food. Finally!
