Nestled inconspicuously on Fenwick Road in Giffnock, Pane E Vino is the Southside’s best kept secret. Delicatessen come bistro, this little gem is 100% authentic and serves some of the nicest artisan bread and freshly ground coffee you will find in Glasgow. This place is so popular that you’ll struggle to get a table post 10am on a Saturday or Sunday. Which means they know something you don’t.

The butterfly & the pig
Now boasting venues on Bath Street and on Pollokshaws Road, The butterfly & the pig not only do breakfast, but they do it well. If you decide to drop in, then ditch the diet and go for a full on fry up. They were even offering anything off their breakfast menu for a £1 recently to celebrate their 1 year anniversary.

If you’re you a gym bunny or an eat clean freak then you need to check out new kid on the block Prep on Bath Street.

So if you’re counting your macros or watching your waistline, then Prep’s the breakfast place to be.

Stylish eaterie Black Dove in Shawlands not only offers seriously tempting sliders and small plates, but they do a mean breakfast to boot. Serving breakfast till noon (12.30pm on a Sunday), the French toast & Eggs Benedict both come highly recommended. As does a bottle of one of their craft beers, should a hair of the dog be required.

Kember & Jones
Kember & Jones is located on Byres Road in the heart of the west end and this cool little cafe is very serious about two things: their coffee and their bakery. Which makes breakfast here a not to be missed experience. They’ve set up their own roastery so the coffee the serve you is their own specific blend and they refuse to use any sort of nasty preservatives in any of their home baked bread. This little spot is the perfect place to grab a croissant and a crossword and watch the world go by.

But let’s not forget the east end where Cafe Tibo has been serving eggs every which way for quite some time. Accompanied by some really good coffee and the supplements, you could easily lose a lazy Saturday morning in here. The only question is if you want Benedict or Florentine.

Gusto & Relish
The very fact that Gusto & Relish make their own breakfast sausage, potato scones and black pudding plus dry cure and smoke their own bacon should be testament enough that you won’t find a better breakfast in the Southside of Glasgow. Add to the mix a well stocked deli counter and this small family run cafe really is a wee gem in the heart of the Southside.

This gorgeous little deli in the west end of Glasgow serves some of the best eggs concotte you will find in the city. That’s eggs baked in a ramekin accompanied by a muffin & butter to you and I. You can also add a variety of breakfasty toppings like sausage or black pudding. As if that didn’t sound amazing enough, they serve their breakfast menu all day, every day. So what are you waiting for?

How do you like your avocado? That’s probably the question you need to ask yourself if you are heading to newish Cafe Strangebrew on Pollokshaws Road. And that answer should be smashed with a runny egg and some chilli hollandaise because that is the dish they do best. You can thank us later for the heads up.
