A NEW cafe has been unveiled in Glasgow's South Side.
Romy Brown, 50, has launched Rhubarb in Pollokshields, fulfilling her life-long dream of running her own cafe.
She says she was finally given the push she needed after losing her dad, Clifford Archer, 81 to Alzheimer's disease a year ago.
She said: "I reckon 50 is the new 40, and I can still work for another 10 years.
"I decided I had to get out of the house and do something."
In the spot previously home to another cafe, Mise en Place, in Nithsdale Road, Rhubarb offers bistro-style food and has an alcohol licence.
A total of 16 staff are employed there.
Romy, who previously worked for family firm Trump Developments in Hillington, also plans to hold a monthly supper club, which will see 25 people gather together for a themed meal.
She said: "People seem to thoroughly enjoy it.
"I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about embarking on something so different after all these years but it has been a bit of a pipe dream for me for a long time.
"I have lived in Pollokshields all my life and over the years have seen some lovely new shops and businesses evolve around here.
"I like to think that this little stretch of the area is a bit like a mini West End.
"Everyone knows everyone but a lot of people do tend to come over here from other parts of the city."
