Yeah, guys finally getting round to post this as have SOOOO many posts to well post….

Something I don’t do enough is meet up with other bloggers, and today I was meeting Emma (Emma Eats) and Wendy (Weekends with Wendy) for brunch at Singl-end in Glasgow.

I have never been here before which really shocked the girls, but I never visit this back street more the main one….so let’s see what I thought of it.

First thing this place is very cute inside, and if your a dog owner then this is a great place for you as its dog-friendly.

Since it was brunch I didn’t want to eat too much in case I went out for dinner later.

The Food…

Singl-end Smoothie : Sunshine on Glasgow £4.95

This was very thick but very nice, so I would just sip this from start to end of the brunch.

It was packed with great flavours that worked really well, and I would have it again when I visit next.

Croque Monsieur £8.25

WOW ok on arrived I never expected it to be this big!!! I knew I had a challenge ahead of me….and dinner might not happen later 🙂

This was AMAZING!!!! every mouthful was great, the flavours overall just perfect and the portion size was really good and excellent value for money.

I finished it all and felt full but not ready to explode full which is always good.

Overall

My first visit here won’t be my last, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.

I also liked that it was dog-friendly so this is a great help to anyone that owns a dog, as there are not many places that cater to this….well for now

Everyone inside today looked very relaxed, having a nice time with friends or family….and enjoying the food…even the dogs.

This is a new one on my list that I will aim to visit again.

Brunch at MAYZE Coffees & Food (West End, Glasgow) : Review

974 Argyle Street
Glasgow G3 8LU

V: 17th February 2019.    W: facebook.com/mayzefinnieston


Today I was very undecided where to go for brunch, so I walked along Argyle Street and passed many places. There was a few that I wanted to go into but, I decided to try here as I saw a woman having something to eat and it looked very good.

Looking Around

Inside is an ok size, but it’s very popular so a few people who looked in passed by which is a shame…hopefully they returned.

Inside for me was ok, a little plane and just needed some more colour to give it more of a warmer feel.

The Food…

So looking at the menu it was all very healthy and more importantly for some people Vegan-friendly.

I asked opted for the French Toast, which is what that lady was having.

French Toast £7.50

homemade cinnamon brioche, stewed apples, custard and crumble

Now as you can see from the above photo, this is why I had to try this today look how good it looks!!!!

I asked before ordering what the crumble was and if it contained nuts, as I can’t do nuts but it didn’t which I was very happy about as I could order this the way it should be.

First bite….and the other bits were very very good!!!

Overall

Overall my first visit was good, I do have two issues but due to the food being good I can easily forgive them.

First I did have to wait a while for the order to arrive, but they were making the custard fresh so I can forgive the wait.

The second one, looking at the table tops mine and around me they could do with either a good clean or a fresh coat of paint….or both….

I am planning on going back as I want to try the Eggs Benedict as that also looked very good.

Festive Menu Launch at Blysthwood Square Hotel (Glasgow) : Event

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..and the Blythswood Square Hotel is in the festive mood.

I was lucky enough to be invited to come along to the Blythswood Square Hotel, where myself and other bloggers etc would be treated to Christmas themed canapes and fizz and here all about the festive offerings….plus a special guest (I wonder who that could be)

We all gathered around a big table, where we took many photos and mixed with each other. On the table were the festive canapes, all looked very good.

Tonight was about the new Festive Lunch and dinner menu

IMG_3732

We were told that the Blythswood Square Hotel was recently taken over, and they were trying to make improvements to several aspects of the hotel (to be honest I liked it before so how could they improve it?). All of the things they mentioned sounded very good, but the main one was the impression it gives people.

They wanted to make the menu and hotel more relaxed, and rather than a “you only go there if your loaded” anyone can come and enjoy a drink or a meal or even both which is good and the way it should be.

After enjoying the drinks and the food, we all had to participate in a little game…..

We all had to decorate the tree’s on the table, and someone special would be the judge

IMG_3848

This was my tree…and unfortunately, I didn’t win but hey it’s not the winning that counts its the taking part 🙂

Guess who the special guest was……..it was SANTA!!!! and we all had a photo or selfie taken with him.

IMG_3847

Yup and I got a photo too 🙂

Overall tonight was very fun and everyone enjoyed the night……and loved seeing Santa again.

As I said the hotel is now doing a Christmas lunch or dinner in the restaurant, and it will only cost £20 which is really good. The festive menu is only on from the 1st of December till 24th, so give them a call and book you and your family or friends or even both in for a little festive treat.
