Mono is a breath of fresh air in Glasgow's Merchant City. It also has a contagious nonchalance which makes it an easy place to chill out, while the in-house record shop (Monorail, www.monorailmusic.com) ensures there's lots of cool types hanging about, and the live music schedule is consistently good. The cafe serves a top-notch, all-vegan menu, with reasonably-priced, hearty meals served up with a remarkable variety, considering it's all animal-free. Adored by its regulars, Mono has a heart and soul and a good ear to boot.
