Coffee, Cakes & Paperchase, Glasgow


Paperchase in Glasgow (185-221 Buchanan Street, G1 2JZ) has a variety of cards for every occasion from birthday to graduation, and get well messages. They also offer a selection of cute stationary, iPhone cases, books, notepads, calendars, planners and gifts. In addition they also have party supplies and seasonal decorations. They also happen to have one of my favorite cafes in the city centre, Tinderbox.
I first visited Tinderbox in 2013 on Ingram Street. It was one of the places where I managed to find my favorite drink and cake, which was rhubarb crumble. I can highly recommend it especially if you have more time and a few friends with you, as at the back of the cafe there is a decent selection of board games. I am not sure if Tinderbox on Buchanan Street has board games anywhere, but to be fair I was not looking for them.
It is quite unusual to have a craft store and cafe together but I really like this idea for its novelty. Additionally, since the cafe is in the city centre, opposite the Buchanan Galleries, it is very convenient to pop in for a quick break and something sweet. 
If you have a sweet tooth and want something delicious Tinderbox definitely knows how to satisfy your taste buds. Their sweet and treat selection has a large variety to find something including chocolate or pistachio puffs, lemon tart, blueberry muffins, and white chocolate cheesecake. Tinderbox's drinks also do not disappoint. Usually I would go for Suki tea, however after a busy day I wanted a large cinnamon latte. I do like my latte in tall latte glass so I was slightly disappointed with presentation. Nevertheless latte was very tasty. 
Wedding Inspiration Decoration
I could not help myself but to have a browse afterwards, quite a few items caught my eye. I would really like to see slightly more wedding related accessories as wedding season is going to be in full swing soon.
Stationaries Decorations Pens from Paperchase
I noticed that they also hold craft workshops. That is definitely something I will have a look at in the future. It would be lovely to take part in a workshop, especially while I am in Glasgow for another city break.

Coffee and stationaries together? What do you think about this idea?

    1. Indeed! After being in one in London, Glasgow and Aberdeen I have to say that Aberdeen's one is more 'generic' orientated.

    1. I am so excited for 50% sales now! I have a feeling my budget planning will not be as successful as during last months :) Love, Iga

  5. It looks so cute! My favourite local cafe is inside a homewares/gift/accessories boutique - very dangerous combination because I often end up buying a scarf or earrings with my coffee.

  8. I have been in this Paperchase quite a few times and never noticed the cafe. Looks super cute I'll definitely have to have a more thorough look next time I'm in Glasgow - maybe I get distracted by all the pretty stationary haha! The chocolate puffs and white chocolate cheesecake sound so so good although my mum makes a smashing rhubarb crumble so maybe I'll have to test out Tinderbox's to compare ;).
