About MalaCarne

MalaCarne was established in 2016 by Claire Dearnley, with the aim of bringing exciting, ethically sourced vegetarian and vegan food to pop-up events around Glasgow.

Claire's plan was realised through the support of local establishments such as Café Strange Brew, Bakery47, MANY Studios, Mount Florida Studios and MILK Café who all helped enormously in hosting events and spreading the word.

Now an independent café in its own right, MalaCarne has found a permanent home on Cathcart road in Mount Florida. Intimately sized, MalaCarne offers a warm, inclusive atmosphere and an inventive menu that pairs tried and tested favourites with exciting, ever-changing specials made from the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Aside from trying out new ideas, MalaCarne’s values have always been about knowing where and how its food is produced and choosing the most ethical options in terms of being environmentally friendly, ensuring animal welfare and supporting local farmers and businesses. For this reason the menus have always been put together using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible and MalaCarne is proud to count Pekotea, Dear Green, Mossgiel, Seasonal Produce among its suppliers.

Those familiar with local makers Object Company and Mariella Ceramics will also recognise their hand-crafted wares such as wine cups, bread boards and wooden butter knives lending a unique touch to the café- MalaCarne aims to build on its connections with the local creative community and welcomes ideas for collaborative projects with artists, along with any community organisations or events that the café may be able to help out.

While MalaCarne’s menu is vegetarian and vegan, the café’s ethos is to be welcoming to all and to strive to provide something that everyone can enjoy- ultimately its about well prepared food and coffee as well as being a place to meet friends and spend time.
