Eusebi Café & Bakery to launch at University of Glasgow’s ARC

Eusebi Deli Exterior

ONE of Glasgow’s most iconic Italian eateries is to expand its brand with the launch of an exciting new café and bakery offering within University of Glasgow’s recently opened, state-of-the-art research facility.

Eusebi Café and Bakery, the newest venture from the family team behind the original Deli and Restaurant venue on Park Road, is set to open in June as part of the ARC (Advanced Research Centre), the University’s new £116m flagship research building.

Situated in the heart of this world-class research hub, and a stone’s throw from the west end’s well-known attractions like Kelvingrove Park and Gallery, the new café and bakery will offer a ‘light’ version of Eusebi’s much-loved food and drink offering.

Initially opening to both the public and the University community from Monday to Friday, it is hoped that later in the year, Eusebi’s Café & Bakery will extend its opening hours to evenings and weekends, too.

Customers will be able to enjoy the full range from Eusebi’s own bakery, freshly made sandwiches and salad dishes, Italian coffee with locally-sourced Mossgiel Organic Milk and other cold and hot drinks. The venue will also offer some other best sellers to take home like many of Eusebi’s own fresh pasta products, including “Yesterday’s Lasagna” as well as vegetarian and vegan options.

An Italian family story which has developed over 40 years in Glasgow, Eusebi’s has become one of the city’s most iconic eateries for its authentic dining experience with modern dishes, excellent quality produce and its warm and welcoming front of house team. 

Aside from an offsite bakery situated in the original Eusebi Shettleston shop, which is closed to the public, the new café and bakery venue within the ARC marks the first ever expansion of the brand beyond the doors of the West End Deli and Restaurant.

Giovanna Eusebi, owner of Eusebi’s, said: “It is a pleasure and privilege to be announcing the news of our new café bakery at the ARC – it is an incredible place, and we are so proud to be playing our own small part in fuelling world-changing research.

“This partnership has come very naturally to us as many of our own values align directly with those of the University of Glasgow. Serving our community and sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and what we will endeavour to deliver within this new venue.

“Located not far from the sights of the West End, and directly overlooking Kelvingrove Park, Eusebi Café and Bakery at the ARC will also be a place where customers can pop in and pick up a coffee and light bite on the move. 

“We so look forward to welcoming customers old and new, researchers, academics and more to our new venue this May.”

Professor Sir Anton Muscatelli, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Glasgow said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Eusebi’s in the ARC. In delivering our campus development programme, as we launch fantastic new facilities for teaching, research and engagement, the University of Glasgow is committed to creating spaces which bring benefit to our local community. Working with excellent local businesses such as Eusebi’s is a key priority for us, and I know our staff and students are very much looking forward to the opening of the new cafe.”
