Singl-end Garnethill, best brunch in Glasgow | REVIEW

Singl-end Garnethill interior

I’ve said it before but when it comes to brunch (or food in general for that matter), it’s absolutely no secret that this gal is a pretty big fan. After doing a bit of digging for the best brunch in Glasgow (where we recently stayed for a long weekend), we came across Singl-end and what was a serious calling of delicious vegetarian and vegan meals and freshly baked loaves – all under one roof! We wasted approximately zero minutes in heading to the Singl-end Garnethill and before we knew it, we had a table for two ready to give us the energy we needed for our little explore around the city.

With branches in Merchant-City and Garnethill, Singl-end is a favourite for a pretty good reason. The latter finds itself cosied up among the old brick houses of Renfrew St (a stone’s throw from Kelvingrove Park), down a set of stairs and into the basement of what was once the Lyon print shop. Aesthetically, Singl-end Garnethill has an exceptionally cool yet simple industrial interior, with glass-top tables filled with vintage stamps and postcards from back in the day (which were incredibly cute to read and reminded me of my own postcard collection), check tablecloths, sweets-filled jars, cook books and nothing short of a friendly atmosphere oozing a “home away from home” feel.

On top of that, Singl-end is known for its delicious, healthy and fresh dishes with a quirky touch. But I’m very much only scratching the surface here. The food selection is varied and absolutely delightful with loads of vegan and gluten free options. With a menu consisting of original breakfast dishes served all day (oh yeah, you read that right, ALL. DAY.), eggs of all shapes and sizes, freshly squeezed juices and smoothies and a rich variety of coffees, Singl-end Garnethill is the perfect place to grab some seriously delicious treats. If this wasn’t convincing enough, their homemade breads are also available to buy or takeaway – which can only ever be a good thing, if you ask me! With flavours from nut and olive oil to sweet potato and almond, it took everything in me to not buy every single loaf in the bakery. Spoilt for choice? Indeed!

Singl-end eggs florentine

Having devoured the menu with our eyes, we both tucked into some incredibly tasty Singl-end eggs florentine. These came with two poached eggs on a stack of roast sweet potato, spinach, red onions with avocado, cashews and tarragon “hollandaise” on top of a homemade toast of your choice. I went for sourdough while Sam chose the Super-nova super seeded! I can also attest to their delightful cappuccino, which was the cherry on top of a perfect brunch to start the day.

Another thing that impressed me endlessly and made Singl-end a really good addition to my own Glasgow travel guide was their consciousness about the environment. All single use products (or as they brilliantly call them, singl-use!) are plant based and biodegradable within 12 weeks. How awesome is that? Needless to say, I loved coming across Singl-end Garnethill on our little trip to Glasgow. Stopping by (even if it’s only for their out-of-this-world bread selection) is fully encouraged!

      Ohh Aimsy, Scotland is absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t recommend Glasgow and Edinburgh enough. You don’t only get to eat delicious food, you also get to see stunning architecture and experience the amazing Scottish culture! x
