What was it called? Anyone have any photos? Were there other shops beside it? I think there were. The inside was sort of art deco, red & white floor tiles. Was there an upstairs seating area, or was that a balcony/roof were you could watch the golfers playing on the course behind the cafe?

I vaguely remember it, but we brought our own sandwiches :-). Was it near where you rented the row boats?

Yep, it was directly opposite. Between the cafe and the row boat area ran the big concrete path/road which circled the loch, breaking off to head in a southerly direction at the circle`s south-east quarter taking you to the road running along the north end of the two primary schools, one of them St Philips.

Back at the cafe/rowing boat gate, the concrete path`s west direction took you to a north-south running main road outside the park with lots of greenland on it`s other side, including a path leading down to a farm growing lots of rhubarb, (which tasted good!!).

I`m surprised there ain`t no photos, so far, as the cafe, especially inside, was a great example of the architecture of its` day... art-deco maybe, or perhaps pre-war, I think.

There where two cafe's one called The Golfer's Rest which was situated at the traffic lights on Cumbernauld Road as you turn the corner to go to Ruchazie Road .it was a lovely big cafe ,always immaculately clean .

The other cafe was at the entrance of hogganfield loch and I can't think of the name , I remember it changed to an Indian restaurant, and it was laying. Vacant last time I sÓw it.
