Cafe Strange Brew joins the Dennistoun breakfast club with Mesa cafe

Cafe Strange Brew has been a sensation in Shawlands. Now the team behind the popular brunch spot are set to bring their creative cooking to Dennistoun. C’est la Vie closed this week at 567 Duke Street. Unbeknownst to us, we had our last French toast there just after Christmas.

Last night, the old sign was down and Cafe Strange Brew owner Laurie MacMillan was surveying the scene with chef Andrea Bartolini. The Sardinian will be expressing himself in the kitchen for a new cafe, to be called Mesa.

With a few alterations, they should be open at the end of next week.

Expect a strong brunch game, gourmet sandwiches, coffee and cakes. We will be at the front of the queue (Glasgowist is now based in Dennistoun).

Mesa will join the local breakfast club that includes Coia’s Cafe, Tibo, East Coffee Company and Scran on Alexandra Parade.
