There were two Italian cafes in Bishopbriggs in the fifties both had vans. I don't know why but our family supported Tony's. The other was Ted's short for Tedesco. I'm sure I would gladly have accepted ice cream from either one!!! When I was about eight my big ambition was to be able to walk into Tony's and order a plate of hot peas and vinegar for sixpence. Not that I was crazy about peas but I thought that would have been the height of independence and maturity in other words ....."a' grown up!"

Jaconelli's Cafe is still in Maryhill Road although they have changed the juke box.

The Empire bar round about the Corner of Bath street West Nile street is long gone.

the Old Empire Bar in the Saltmarket is still there.

Does anyone remember the Westway Cafe? I think that's what its name was. Located on Paisley Road West. We used to go there a lot and drink hot orange. Supposed to be good for spotty faces!

Yes, Tumchie, I do. My big cousin used to take me there for a McCallum now and then when he was home from the RAF. Hadn't thought of it for a long time. Magic memories. biggrin.gif GB
