Roseangle Café Arts at The Bridge
To Roseangle Café Arts yesterday for a spot of lunch in the heart of Dundee's West End. It's situated inside Dundee West Church opposite the art college, and was launched last June with the aim of providing a focal point for the area's church goers, artists and office workers alike. There's a snug ambience in there with an assortment of artworks and crafty articles for the eye to linger over awhile. They run a rotating exhibitions programme and right now a display of Barbara Robertson lino cuts decorates the corridor, while inside there's a selection of whimsical Ai Kato etchings evoking an aura of magic realism and fantasy. Future shows are apparently set to include a children’s exhibition at Christmas.
The space is managed by Emma Kelly, a fine art graduate, and all the food is offered up with laudable provisos, being homemade, locally sourced and organic where possible. The eggs are free range, the coffee Fairtrade and all the material is recycled etcetera. Even the furniture is from the local recycling centre. I had a coffee and an Arbroath smokie (see photo) which I enjoyed with a happy temperament and a clear conscience.
