This place is recommended by Citizen M hotel, having been reviewed by individuals who stayed there and ate at Trans Europe. It is a quirky place with many of the seats being like bus/train seats.

Visited this morning, best brunch I've had in Glasgow! Very central location with great quirky decor (bus seats and maps on the wall) and great staff. They have a wide range of dishes on the menu but the brunch is the best. I will definitely be back.

We enjoyed a super brunch (one of their all day breakfasts) at the Trans Europe Cafe last Friday. It's a lovely cafe, very cosy with a very entertaining maître d. We both went for their full breakfast but I was very tempted by their selection of French toasts. And I can confirm that the breakfasts were delicious. Recommended.

The sausage was very tasty, in particular, and the presentation was appealing. Nice also to have a real pot of tea which provides... More

its a good choice if you want to have a good breakfast in Glasgow. Big variety, tasty food, nice coffee. Good service. (-): sometimes too busy and noisy, too small hall
