About Tapa® Coffee

Vegetarian & Vegan – Hand Roasted Coffee – Organic Breads

Your only Tapa® in Scotland (we don’t have any branches) is here to serve you with our freshly made environmental friendly healthy vegetarian food, ethically sourced, chosen for flavour hand roasted Tapa® Coffee & overnight baked Tapa® Organic Breads. We have been serving our customer in Glasgow for over a decade & now with our online shop you can have Tapa Coffee delivered anywhere in UK & click and collect our award winning organic breads.



Tapa® Coffee & Bakehouse (Tapa® Organic) was originally established by a couple from New Zealand at, 21 Whitehill Street, Denniousten, Glasgow, G31 2LH, Scotland– UK (the current Tapa® address). The business grew and was taken over by a Scottish couple with a total of four Tapa® branches in Scotland. However, the rest of the 3 braches were sold by the previous owners to different individuals and they were all required to change the name from Tapa to a different name.



The current owners bought the original Tapa®, the Denniousten branch along with the Tapa® name, all the rights, skilled staff, more importantly, the Tapa® Bakery & the Tapa® Coffee, including full control/rights over Tapa Social media accounts.



Has Tapa® got any Branches?

Therefore, at present (April 2019) Tapa® Coffee & Bakehouse has NO branches.



It is here at Tapa® Denniousten, your only Tapa® in Scotland, we bake our Tapa® Organic Breads & we roast our Tapa® Coffee.  If any other Tapa® exists, it has no association with Tapa® Coffee & Bakehouse and our Organic Breads and Tapa® Coffee is NOT available at any other Tapa.



Legacy and Sense of Community

We bake our Organic Breads using the recipe we have been using for over a decade, our master baker has been with us for over 10 years now. Prior to the Tapa Bakehouse, the place (Tapa Denniousten) was a bakery for over 80 years, therefore there is a sense of legacy that Tapa carries, in terms of Baking Breads. A decade ago Tapa Coffee was added to the place. (19-21 Whitehill Street, Denniousten, Glasgow G31 2LH)



Together, now Tapa Coffee & Bakehouse has loyal customers (Tapa Community) who have been drinking Tapa Coffee for over 10 years and buying Tapa® Breads, including from as far as Highlands, Edinburgh and Dundee.



We pride in the trust Tapa® Community/customers have in us and whatever changes we make, we will always listen to the Tapa® Community, this is why we call our customers, Tapa® community. Though with time, the geographical spread of our community has grown and now with our new online shopping it will spread further, we will maintain our ethos. 



Origin of the name Tapa®?

It is certainly not from the Spanish word Tapa(s) (appetizer or snacks). Yes, you read it right,



Our Tapa® name means Bark Cloth, made in New Zealand and other Islands of the Pacific Oceans. 

“Bark cloth, or tapa, is not a woven material, but made from bark that has been softened through a process of soaking and beating. The inner bark is taken from several types of trees or shrubs, often mulberry and fig, and designs are applied with paints and vegetable dyes of light brown, red, and black.”



Vegetarian, Vegan & Healthy Food

Tapa® is totally vegetarian with many vegan options. We strongly believe in natural, healthy, fresh and ethical food. We always strive to serve the best possible food & coffee.



Tapa® Breads are the only Soil Association Certified Organic Breads in Glasgow, baked overnight and served fresh in the morning.



Environmental Friendly & Zero Waste

We believe in protecting the environment, not just for us but for the future generations. We do our bit for the environment,




  1. All our reusable cutlery (cups, spoons etc.) including bin liners are compostable and or biodegradable.

  2. Cleaning materials we use are (as much as possible) environmental friendly & sourced carefully.
