ICE-CREAM bosses have submitted new planning designs after pulling the original scheme for a new Southside store.

As told by the Glasgow Times in October, Loop and Scoop owners lodged a planning application for a third branch on Victoria Road.

Designs for the front of the new shop raised eyebrows as they made a change to the historic and well-known facade of the former Queens Cafe.

Following feedback from locals, the plans were withdrawn last year.

And now newly tweaked designs have been submitted to Glasgow City Council’s planning department.

Documents submitted online show plans include making changes to the front of the shop unit, including extending the current stained-glass panel with new matching glass to run along the top of the window area.

The application, submitted by Burns Interior Design, still seeks permission to remove load bearing walls.

And there is a request to use the pavement outside the cafe for outdoor seating contained by a picket fence of Loop and Scoop’s signature white and orange colours.

The previous application showed a digital menu board to be hung outside but this will now be placed internally.

Proposals for bifold doors are no longer in the planning application, which would now maintain the former glass frontage, and stall risers would now be kept.

Locals who submitted feedback to the planning application received notice in late November that the previous planning application had been withdrawn.

New plans were lodged with Glasgow City Council at the end of December.

When it opens, the shop will join a fast-growing number of restaurants and cafes along Victoria Road, including the neighbouring Italian deli Cibo.

It will have space for 16 customers and suggests opening hours of noon until 10pm Monday to Thursday, 11am until 11pm on Friday and Saturday and on Sundays from 11am until


The Glasgow Times contacted the owner of Loop and Scoop for comment about the change to the proposals but received no response.

The popular ice-cream and churro cafe first opened on Great Western Road before a second branch was unveiled in Bearsden.

In July, we first told how the chain planned to transform the Queens Cafe shop when Ginesi’s Italian Gelato moved further down Victoria Road.
