Used to go to the Top Hat in Dalmarnock Road across from Allan Street and the Kit Kat on Springfield Road. The Top Hat had Albatross on their Juke Box and I played it all the time.

our nearest was the Imperial Cafe on London road or the Empire cafe.. near Dunn st. but for brilliant ice cream it had to be Peter Rossis along London road.. I can still remember the red leather seats that folded down like picture hall seats..

I remember the Top Hat on Grt Western Road at Anniesland with great affection. During the early 60's if I went along to help my mum with the shopping at Fine-Fare, she'd often reward me with a milkshake at the TH, it was a great treat.

I've never lost my love of cafe's from that day

My Ma used to take us to a tearoom in Cambridge street called Cakeland and that was the highlight of the week for us the cakes would be diplayed on one of those old type cake stands but we where not allowed to touch them till we got the okay from my Ma but before we did so we would tell my Ma which one we wanted and we had to take our turn of picking our cake one by one.
I remember louies cafe in Garscube road near Caithness street where you got a bowl of hot peas

Your right enough Rossi's was the best cafe for ice cream I used to get the number9 tram from Kirkpatrick St. To Kent street carrying a billy can which they would fill up with ice cream it would then be a mad dash to get home before the ice cream melted.There was another great wee cafe between Queen Mary street and Montgomerie street where you could sit in and enjoy plates of hot peas ,lovely on a cold winters night but I cant remember the name of it

mt cafe's were the bluebird and guidi's on Tollcross road. when I was about 8 I would go to the bluebird on my own order a wee bottle of barr's american cream soda with straw and put it's a hard day's night on the duke box and enjoy feeling like a big lassie until my soda was finished. laugh.gif guidi's my pals and me would get cokes and play the duke box and watch the talent go by. In the winter we would swap the cokes for hot orange or bovril and cream crackers. When I was younger I would meet my granda at hauf nine ootside the Strathspey pub and he took me to the bluebird for a 99 and 10 lucky bags every Friday night.
