Time Out says
Shawlands is a suburb of Glasgow, around 3.5km south of the Clyde and although it's sort of halfway between Pollok Country Park and the National Stadium, it's not part of the city that would usually attract visitors. That said, if you do find yourself down that way don't miss Eat Café, an award-winning little place on Kilmarnock Road. It's a contemporary space of the kind you would expect in the city centre while the cooking is noteworthy from its excellent brunches through light meals and snacks to dinner. Three evening courses might bring smoked haddock chowder to start; king prawn linguini as a main; passion fruit tart for dessert. It also has a good children's menu for under-12s.
