best place in Glasgow for breakfast!

This place is great, we have been in for dinner and loved it but also the breakfast/lunch menu is amazing. Omelettes are filling and a good size, the hollandaise sauce on the eggs benedict was perfection and they know how to make a good cup of coffee. They get the basics right and then the a la... read more

Super wee Cafe, almost always busy but very well managed and never waiting long for a table. Great service out front with a smile and a chat. Tony always makes time for his regulars to pass a comment or joke and his front of house team create a relaxed friendly atmosphere. The Chefs are superb, great choice of food and... More

sad to say that this previously loved little cafe is taking its eye off the ball.we were in Glasgow for three nights in December and we would normally have breakfast here every day and possibly dinner on at least one of the nights. We went for breakfast on the first day and were the only four people in at around... More

This is the second time that I have eaten here in the last few months. The place really ticks all my boxes; It's in a good location, the food is great, the service is friendly and warm and the prices are reasonable. The place itself is small, resembling more of a European cafe than a restaurant in terms of the... More

I enjoyed the food - soup and sandwich combo. Good house red wine, Furstenberg - all reasonably priced. Great service. Read some negative comments about staff singing - music was great, can fully understand why they were singing. Really nice people - happy - great fun. My wife's been here before, she took me to it on Saturday around 4ish.... More

We happened upon this place as we had tickets to the Tron theatre and it was both near by and looked amazing. I think they have only just started doing evening meals but they do them well, the menu is made up of starters mains and deserts, for the savories there are 2 meat dishes, two fish dishes and two...

I love this wee cafe. The food, especially the breakfast/brunch is tasty and always perfectly cooked. Excellent coffee also. The warm and friendly service and quirky furniture and theme set this place apart. It's the kind of place that in the States would have hipsters queuing for Brunch at the weekends.

The owner, made us feel especially welcome, explaining the menu and options, very helpful, not pressured. The meals, we had a salad, that was definitely up... More

This place seems to have got a lot more expensive than it was before. I went on a Sunday afternoon and the food was excellent and helped cure my hangover. What seriously never helped tho was the chefs constant singing. I swear it spoiled my whole experience. There I was paper in hand already for a nice read and a... More
