We love a good night out in Glasgow, but what we don’t love is the horrible hangover the next day. No need to fear, brunch is here. Whether it’s boozy and bottomless or cool and casual, we just can’t resist a good brunch date. With so many places to choose from, we’ve narrowed down our favourite places to enjoy brunch in Glasgow.
First up on our list, we have fan favourite, Celino’s. They’ve been bringing the very best of Italian cuisine to Glasgow since 1982, and they just keep getting better. Along with their authentic Italian dishes, the deli is great for picking up some treats for home, and lets not forget what you came here for: their brunch. Think fluffy eggs, bacon, and maple syrup topped pancakes, and Nutella drenched French toast. DROOL…
So what’s it gonna be? A bowl of bland cereal at home or an indulgent breakfast at Eusebi Deli? Indulgent breakfast of course. Head to Eusebi’s this weekend where you can enjoy eggs cooked to perfection, delicate pastries, or go the whole hog and get the big Fritto, a meaty breakfast with Italian sausage, grilled pancetta, black pudding, mushrooms, the lot!
Brunch, it’s what Sunday’s are all about, right? Situated near the University of Glasgow, Stravaigin is perfect for a cosy brunch. The interior has a cool industrial vibe, with dim lighting and twinkly lights to set the mood. The brunch menu is traditional with a few modern dishes thrown in, the Indonesian eggs with pickled vegetables, peanut sauce, and sriracha, are a particular highlight.
Did someone say boozy brunch? Quite simply the most stylish brunch in Glasgow, Bubbles and Brunch at Hutchesons is the perfect treat. Buttery croissants to start, a delicious brunch dish for main and ‘of course’ a bottle of fizz to share between two to wash it all down. There’s also a carafe of fresh orange just in case you feel like getting your mimosa on, and prices start from £50 for two. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, or if you’re feeling a bit extra, you can also upgrade to a Champagne brunch with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot for £85. If boozy brunch in Glasgow is what you’re after, then wait no longer and book your spot!
Not only do they know their fish, Cafe Gandolfi know how to do a damn good breakfast. We recommend the Gandolfi full Scottish breakfast complete with Stornoway black pudding, bacon, and beef sausage. Their avocado and poached eggs on sourdough toast deserve a special mention, and the delicious brioche French toast with fruit, yoghurt, and maple syrup (which you can see on your left), is to die for.
The next place on our list is giving us serious botanical brunch vibes. Surrounded by foliage, the Chip has plenty of cute corners to hide away and enjoy brunch, perfect if you’re feeling a bit rough. Chow down on a range of healthy salads, soups, or opt for the full breakfast, guaranteed to cure any hangover.
The Hidden Lane Tearoom
Tucked in the corner of its namesake, is this gem of a tearoom. Make a day of it in the Hidden Lanes (fun fact: the area is officially known as Argyle Court), book yourself into a yoga session, have a peek at some of the colourful artist studios, and top it all off with a delicious brunch at The Hidden Lane Tearoom. We would recommend their Morning Tea, for only £9 you can devour mini savoury brioches, a baked egg muffin, a mini scone with clotted cream and jam, a selection of pastries, and granola with yoghurt and fresh berries, all served with your choice of tea from their extensive menu. This one’s one of our very favourite spots for a brunch in Glasgow!
A Finnieston favourite since 1896, the Kelvingrove Cafe has had many reincarnations over the years. Opening in 2013, this contemporary cafe has gone back to its Victorian roots becoming a favourite lunch spot for locals and visitors to the Kelvingrove Park once more. If you’re into eggs, you can have them poached, fried, with chips, scrambled, and in an omelette with Gruyere. Drool. If eggs aren’t your thing, you name it, they do it. Try the salty porridge (if you’re brave enough), and reward yourself with a glass of fresh OJ and a bloody mary, because why not.
The Left Bank
This West End favourite has been serving local produce from the Scottish larder with international flavours for over ten years. Brunch is served everyday at The Left Bank, 9-5 weekdays and 10-5 on the weekends, letting you have that lie in. The menu is eclectic, but that’s just the way things roll here. Devour grilled banana bread with homemade chocolate hazelnut sauce, french toast, huevos mexicanos or eggs mornay served with cheesy mornay sauce. If you’re into halloumi, the Lebanese breakfast will be up your street, they serve it with sauteed potatoes. It’ll make you want to have potatoes for brunch everyday. Give it a go.
The Bungo Bar & Kitchen
Sister restaurant to The Left Bank in the West End, this Southside gastro pub is a great addition to the already lively restaurant scene south of the river. If you want the eggs mornay from The Left Bank but you’re on the Southside, hit up The Bungo. Their Bloody Mary’s are famous in the area and they’re even dog friendly meaning it’s a great place to head after walking Rover in Queen’s Park. We can’t promise you won’t end up staying the whole day.
