Our hotel was across the street, we decided to breakfast there on our first day in Glasgow. It was a perfect little cafe, nice staff, good basic but well prepared food and a cozy ambience. We ended up breakfasting there several days. It's the kind of place where you can count on a pleasant experience.

The reviews of this place were great so we were disappointed when we were served hard poached eggs and burnt toast. And the bacon on the side looked like it had been microwaved. Good coffee though. Won't rush to go back.

I wouldn't choose anywhere to eat in Glasgow. Have introduced many people to this lovely cafe and each person has gone back time and again. The food is always gorgeous and the staff are so friendly.

Always on our list when we visit Glasgow. Take a break from the bustle of the city and visit Cafe Wanderer. Great food, staff and location. Thoroughly recommended.

Having worked in Glasgow for 2 years, Cafe Wander was a regular haunt. It was convenient, but more importantly I felt welcome and comfortable whilst visiting. It very quickly became a regular trip to get coffee, grab a quick bite to take back to the office or to loiter and relax in the friendly atmosphere. The coffee was amazing and... More
