Best Brunch in Glasgow

Early or late riser, nothing beats a good fatty fry up. Especially if you’ve been out on the town the night before. Find out where I like to go for brunch.

Breakfast or brunch is an important meal of the day, so I’ve put together a list of places you should go when you can’t be bothered cooking.

Cranberry’s 

30 Wilson St, Glasgow

Sitting in Merchant City, Cranberry’s is high on my list. Step inside and you feel as though you’ve travelled to Italy, with lovely views outside. I opted for french toast with bacon and a pot of maple syrup to drizzle over. The french toast was light and fluffy and the bacon crispy. There’s also croissants, bagels and scrambled eggs. I enjoyed my breakfast so much, I was back bright eyed and bushy tailed the next weekend.

 

Cafe Wander

110 West George Street

If you’re wandering along Buchanan Street looking for a place for brunch, Cafe Wander is quick to get to. Breakfast is served all day Saturday so you can still have your long lie and have brunch – bonus! Full breakfasts and breakfast rolls can be found on the menu along with good old beans on toast. It’s a busy cafe with a great atmosphere and you’ll find a tasty pit stop here before you begin the day.

Waffles topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries… yes please!

Bill’s

22-24 West Nile Street

Fairly new to Glasgow, Bill’s is finally not another burger chain opening up on West Nile Street. It’s interior would make you think you were in a deli abroad and there’s plenty of space for groups if you fancy taking more than a few friends. I had Bill’s bread basket that had warm croissants and pain au chocolates and of course, two slices of bread. Sweet home-made jam was accompanied by the bread that Imeathered on. A full breakfast is also on the large menu with blueberry pancakes for the sweet tooth and yoghurt for those keeping healthy. Brunch is brill at Bill’s.

Brooklyn Cafe

21-23 Minard Road

In Shawlands, Brooklyn Cafe is about a 5 minute walk from Crossmyloof station. It looks quite small when you first go in but there’s more seating upstairs. One thing I love about the cafe is that all their breakfast items are available the whole day – I’m always fed up of just missing the breakfast items in cafes. I went for their pancakes with bacon and maple syrup and the pancakes were proper fluffy and the maple syrup was perfect, I’ve tasted a lot of horrible cheapy syrup before! I keep meaning to go back in and try even more of their breakfast items and one of their ice creams as they look so good.

Do you have a favourite brunch stop in Glasgow? Let me know in the comments!
