The best Breakfast in Glasgow

|Looking for the best breakfast in Glasgow? From Stravaigin and Singl End, to Cafe Strange Brew and Bakery 47, this Scottish city has it all.

Recently Calvin Harris stated that the Stravaigin on Gibson Street was the best breakfast in the world.

We have to disagree.

Whilst the fry up at Stravaigin is pretty damn great, there are so many more options for an unforgettable breakfast in Glasgow. So here are the best of the best, the must eats and the cult favourites.

5 of the BEST Breakfasts in Glasgow;

Singl end

Recently rated on Trip Advisor as the best restaurant in Glasgow, this basement eaterie is renowned for its breakfasts. From spicy baked eggs to the best (yeah we said best) peanut butter cookies you will ever taste, Singl End is well worth the hype. They also have a wide selection of vegan & veggie options, so you can be sure everyone you take will love it.


Whether you are at the original West End location or the new city centre venue the food and service is always impeccable. The french toast is probably the biggest you have ever seen and the smashed avocado with Halloumi is the perfect pick me up. Be prepared to wait for a seat.

Cafe Zique

I have three words for you; homemade potato scone. This is the basis of any good Scottish Fry up, if there’s no tattie scone it ain’t Scottish! Cafe Zique offer one of the best full fry ups we’ve ever had and in our opinion it beats Stravaigins hands down!

Cafe Strange Brew

Nestled in the South Side of Glasgow this little gem is packed out on a regular basis. Try their daily specials for some unusual takes on breakfast or go for the more traditional Eggs Benedict or a home made scone with cream and jam to start the day.

Bakery 47

Is THE place to go for bread, cake and pastries. You can sit in and have a coffee from Dear Green or grab some supplies and head home to cook up a storm. Make sure you get there early as they close up shop when everything sells out…and it never lasts for long! Our fave has to be the sourdough loaf, possibly the tastiest bread in Glasgow!
