A MUCH-LOVED West End eatery is set to open up a new venture.

Eusebi Deli, a family-owned restaurant and deli is launching a new business in June.

Situated at the Advanced Research Centre (ARC) of the University of Glasgow, Eusebi Café and Bakery will be a "light version" of the iconic venture.

The University’s new £116m flagship research building is due to open this spring in the city's West End.

The new cafe and bakery will initially be open from Monday to Friday, with hopes to extend it into evenings and weekend later.

Some of the food they will serve include freshly made sandwiches and salad dishes, Italian coffee with organic milk and other cold and hot drinks, fresh pasta products, including “Yesterday’s Lasagna” as well as vegetarian and vegan options.

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."
