Located near Glasgow cross and 10 mins from the Premier Inn near the Gorbals. Its not huge and quickly filled up. Liked the ex bus seats and old photos. Full menu of breakfast and lunch items and delicious home made soup with different bread/panini etc options and is licensed. Soup and sandwich deal was good and the omelette looked huge.... More

We stopped in at the Trans European after looking through our choices on Trip Advisor. Its location gave us a walk through the downtown core after arriving on a morning train from Edinburgh. This was a good choice. I had a BLT that was served on a panini-style bread. Came with a small salad and chips. The service was excellent... More

I went in with my family and the place was lined up out the door. Luckily, we did not have to wait long to get inside. The staff was extremely friendly and the food came very quickly. We spent around 25 pounds and had huge portions of wonderful breakfast food. Would FOR SURE go back.

Visited for the evening menu with a group of friends. Lovely understated decor and attentive staff. Great choices on both starters and main courses. I had aubergine rolls to start 10/10 and went for the Wild Boar casserole which was very tasty. A few friends had the steaks and loved them. I will be back.

This small, friendly restaurant is a couple of hundred yards from the Merchant City beside Glasgow Cross and easily missed. It is comfortably small and open all day. The menu isn't hugely extensive but offers breakfast type meals all day. The service is quick and friendly and the food is excellent: simple and tasty. The portions are just the right... More

Lovely place to relax with coffee or a meal, friendly staff and good selection. Have been a couple of times, the food has been good - tasty fresh salad selection and great cheese platter. Love the giant map on the wall and in the toilets! Planning on going back for dinner sometime!

Looking for something that little bit different? You've got to come here...this little gem is a favourite of mine as it never fails to disappoint. Service is always served up with a laugh and a big smile, super tasty food, eclectic dinner menu and a brilliant atmosphere. Tucked away behind the Tron, seek it out, you won't be disapponted...
