Glasgow Brunch Spots to Cure Your Freshers Hangover(s)

Coia’s Café

A Glasgow breakfasting institution since 1928, Coia’s on Duke Street is an absolute must for morning bites. With a bountiful selection from eggs to granola to the full shebang, Coia’s is bound to have something for everyone. Check out their deli too for some baked treats to take home with you.


McPhabbs, located just off Charing Cross, is the place to be for weekend brunch. Offering trendy takes on traditional breakfast foods, Saturday and Sunday’s menu is served from 11am until 4pm, which is perfect for the lazier customers among us. From time to time they serve bottomless brunch which essentially lets you eat until you burst, so keep an eye on their social media.


With four locations in the city already and plans for more in the near future, Tribeca’s New York style brunching is clearly a hit among Glaswegians. Featuring an extensive menu of pancakes, waffles and meatier choices, this indulgent spot will satisfy your cravings from 11am to 5pm, Monday to Sunday. They also serve bottomless coffee to keep that hangover sluggishness at bay.

Rose and Grant’s

Vegans need love too! Rose and Grant’s understated café on Trongate caught the city’s attention after introducing vegan square sausage to their delicious breakfast menu. It’s a peaceful spot in the city centre that serves full Scottish vegan breakfast all morning and has delicious baked treats galore, as well as some of the best coffee this side of the Clyde. It’s one of the few stockists of Sgaia’s vegan meats, so head down to see what’s new.

Café Strange Brew

Nothing fixes a hangover better than eggs and a stroll around the Southside’s Queen’s Park. Head south to the highly reputable (and dog friendly!) Café Strange Brew for some of the highest rated brunch in the city. Their breakfast dishes are beautifully presented and customer service is fantastic. We recommend the “That Guy” – comprising of poached eggs and avocado on toast with chilli hollandaise. Mmm.
