Best place for brunch!

Have visited Trans Europe couple of times for lunch and breakfast and loved it every time. Food is delicious and nicely presented, I would especially recommend eggs benedict, but really everything looks great! Highly recommend!

A lovely wee find in the middle of Glasgow. Food was absolutely delicious, I just wish I had room to eat it all. Staff were delightful. So impressed with the friendliness. Great atmosphere for a small little cafe. The music playlist was spot on although that is personal preference. I can't wait to go back and try a few different... More

Have been here a couple of times and really enjoyed it each time. The breakfast menu is really varied and good options for vegetarians also. Good portion sizes and food feels very freshly made. Brilliant, attentive and quick service. Looking forward to our next visit!

Our first visit and we will be back. The decor is quirky and different, the staff were lovely. Coffee tasty and strong. The Omelette was not only hefty but superbly made and the French Toast was excellent too. We also noted the nice relaxed atmosphere, while we didn't have our son with us there was someone else in there with... More

After getting a bunch of recommendations for places to have brunch in Glasgow, we happened upon this super cosy spot on the most freezing day! Our specks and phones steamed up. The atmosphere was great, the owner was charming and the food was phenomenal! Good luck deciding what to have as the menu was vast and covered everything. My pals... More

We eat in Tony's every week and just love the staff, the ambience, the food and Tony's music (well not every song!) We have been eating there for years and the friendly atmosphere is always welcoming. You will not be disappointed!

I visit Trans Euro Cafe around 20 times a year and always enjoy it. They serve really great sandwiches and the service is always faultless.

It's quirky, off the beaten track but very popular and great food. Recommend the fabulous omelette over the breakfast. £34 for 4 people - great value. Owner is hilarious and just the kind of person with personality you want front of house
