Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The recent spread of new brunch places has tended to focus on Glasgow’s more laid-back peripheries, meaning it can be tricky finding a city centre specialist doing the meal between meals. The minds behind Finnieston’s Roast and Seb & Mili were perhaps thinking the same when they opened this semi-basement breakfast, lunch and brunch café in the heart of office land. The roomy space hosts red leather booths, stone walls and plenty of green plants, giving the place a homely DIY feel – boosted by hand-written text on the windows proudly proclaiming the delights within. The menu is a neat two pages containing morning rolls and full-on breakfasts, eggs on eggs on eggs, and a sandwich selection including burgers and toasties. A highlight is the croque madame, a hefty dish of fresh sourdough bread, melted Gruyère, honey roasted ham, finished off with a fried egg on top. The baked goods are another wonder, with the carrot cake being especially moist and sweet. A great spot for grabbing lunch on a break, stopping during shopping or meeting for a business breakfast.
