Singl-end Cafe and Bakehouse in Glasgow is a quirky, retro style cafe near the Glasgow School of Art with delicious brunch and lunch choices, even better cakes and plenty of gluten-free and vegan options to choose from.
The folks over at Citizen M asked me to head over and check it out, which my brother and I were very excited to do! If you want to read their review of Singl-end you can check it out here.
Singl-end is centrally located and easy to find on basement level Renfrew Street. When you first walk in you are met by two tables of delicious looking breads and cakes! I loved the retro-vibe of the cafe, which meant there was plenty to look at when waiting for your food.
There is a lot of choice on the menu, including loads of more specialised dietary requirements such as gluten-free and veganism. The breakfast/brunch selection looked great, but as we were there in the afternoon we both opted for open sandwiches. Andrew went for the steak sandwich, whilst I went for ham and cheese- both on soda bread.
The staff were friendly and cheerful and the food arrived quickly. When they arrived we were both very impressed! The sandwiches were really tasty and substantial, Andrew especially liked the seasonal vegetables on the steak.
Although we were both feeling pretty full we couldn't walk away without trying some of the delicious cakes by the door! We ate them at Singl-end but you could also take them away (same with most of the food).
There was so many cakes to choose from, Andrew went for a really delicious (and big) empire biscuit and I went for a layered peanut butter, chocolate biscuit. My biscuit was amazing and really rich so it would be great to share- although I managed it all myself!
I would really recommend Singl-end, it's great for brunches and lunches and I think you can even book it out for functions! Price wise it is also very reasonable, with most things on the menu under £10, our sandwiches were £7.50 and £9 retrospectively. Have you been to Singl-end before?
