Café Gandolfi provides effortlessly classy surroundings while managing to avoid any sense of pretentiousness, making this a smart, relaxed place to try some genuinely delicious morning cuisine. A visit to this long standing Glasgow institution (since 1979) is highly recommended.
Kember & Jones
High ceilings, exposed brickwork and rustic design features prevail in this brilliant café attached to Kember & Jones, one of Glasgow’s most popular bakeries. Regardless of how you pronounce “scone”, the feta and basil-filled “scons” are a real treat.
Stavaigin’s motto is “think global, eat local” and that expansive philosophy stretches to every corner of their menu. Weird and wonderful dishes are everywhere you look in this shabby-chic restaurant but the ingredients are always locally sourced and as fresh as they can be.
Spoon is an open, fresh space that’s regularly filled with the smell of cooking bacon, hot coffee and freshly baked cake. It’s decorated like the metropolitan flat of a twenty-something architect and they’ve certainly perfected the blueprint for a great start to your day’s dining.
The Blue Bear
It’s commonly known that you simply don’t mess with a bear in the morning, although even David Attenborough might agree that this epic coffee shop is an exception to the rule. Whether you like your breakfast light or full, The Blue Bear has an enticing menu to send you roaring into the day ahead.
“Food, glorious food” should be the rallying cry behind this café that seeks to stun hungry patrons with a selection of gourmet dishes, easing even the most night-fatigued palates into the day with culinary style.
