This excellent café/restaurant is named after a renowned family - who both made cameras and took photographs during the 2nd half of the 19th and the whole of the 20th centuries.
It opened in 1979, in what was the old Cheese Market, in the area that's become the vibrant Merchant City area of the city. It's beautifully-furnished with heavy rustic-style tables and chairs designed by Tim Stead.
It succeeds in its aims of offering Scottish dishes at affordable prices.
You can pop in for a sandwich - although the description doesn't do the end product justice, as you are offered delights such as 'Porchetta with Roasted Red Pepper and Rocket' and 'Classic Spanish Tortilla with Onion and Potato on a Baguette with Leaves'.
Their menu also offers starters/light dishes such as 'Chicken Liver Paté with Oatcakes or Toast'; 'Gravadlax with Dill and Mustard Sauce' and 'Arbroath Smokies baked with Tomatoes and Cream'; plus Stornoway Black and White Pudding and the like.
More substantial dishes such as 'Caesar Salad with Bacon'; 'Haggis Neeps & Tatties'; 'Smoked Venison with Gratin Dauphinoise' and various linguine pasta options.
There are also Specials, such as 'Sirloin Steak with Chili & Coriander Butter' and 'Tiger Prawn, Cod and Sea Bass Soup with Crusty Bread'.
A few desserts might include 'Cheesecake Parfait with a Lemon Yoghurt Topping' and 'Clementine Cake with Hot Chocolate Sauce'.
