We both had egg dishes, which were very good and filling. All the other dishes I saw going out looked very good too. Would go back - only if I didn't have anywhere else to go later, however, as both of us came out smelling of fried food due to the poor ventilation. At its worst the front window is... More

Service was great, food was excellent. Walked in for breakfast to delicious smells of soup simmering in the kitchen. Breakfast was fast and fresh. Coffee great too.

We fancied a breakfast at 2 in the afternoon and we're certainly not disappointed! Very very friendly and genuinely one of the best breakfasts. Definitely the best omelette I've ever had. Worth visiting any time of the day!

I have been hee a good few times and never been disappointed, cracking brunch menu available all day for those of use that aren't morning people. The staff are superb and the food is great. A chorizo omelette with crunchy toast is a good start to any Sunday!

Came here after googling best eggs Benedict in Glasgow as my wife was craving it and Tripadvsior lead us to here. Brilliant wee spot tucked away just off argyle street. Quirky decor inside, really liked the map of the world tiles and old bus seat chairs. Great breakfast and service, highly recommend.

Visited for brunch, I've always loved the Cafe, it's quirky and the staff are always very friendly! On this occasion I ordered eggs Stornaway, unfortunately my eggs were a wee bit overdone - but it was busy and I think they'd just sat under the lamp for a touch too long before serving (the hazards of serving poached eggs)!

Very laid back, good music and good choice of sandwiches. Good value soup and sandwich deal. Was quiet when we were in but good service and relaxed atmosphere.

The food is great and very reasonable and the coffee and service are strong and sweet, but the Europa pop is the thing worth visiting for.
