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.

Singl Coffee: Review

Website:  www.singlcoffee.com

Singl coffee was born out of a love for coffee. Truly great, real, coffee.

Here at Singl coffee, we don’t think coffee has reached its peak yet, and if simplicity is key, we aim to take that to the next level. We want fresh ground coffee to be accessible to everybody, every day, no matter where you are. Coffee capsule machines are great, we love them, but you can’t put it in your bag and carry it to work with you! If you don’t put up with bad instant coffee at home, why put up with it anywhere else?

The guys over at Singl Coffee were nice enough to send me a box, to sample their coffee which was great as I am a big coffee lover. They sent me a sample of each of the coffee’s they sell, so I could get a complete taster of what they do.

Singl Coffee use Arabica coffee beans in all the coffee bags, which helps with the flavour of the coffee so I couldn’t wait to try some.

I opened the box…

I really liked how they packaged this, but something got my attention right away….the coffee is in bags just like tea (I didn’t know this till after they sent me the box when I read about the company)…..now this is interesting.

So I have a Nespresso machine which uses capsules, and I have also purchased compatible capsules so how does this work? well to be honest with you it works very easy.

As you can see from the photo above, you open the package, place the bag in a cup and pour your hot water in…..let it sit for as long as you like (depends how strong you want) and that’s it…..just like making a cup of tea but this time coffee.

It was time to have a coffee….or three 🙂

I followed the instructions…

Colombian..Sip….Ethiopian….Sip……Decaff….Sip….

I liked all three coffee’s but the Ethiopian one would probably be my favourite, mostly down to taste and aftertaste.

I even took a few bags to work, as I couldn’t carry my Nespresso machine to work. This was great and I really enjoyed having good coffee at my work and at home.

The cost for 7 bags is about £7.50, and 14 is £9.50 which to be honest your better going for the 14. They also do a subscribe and save option, giving you a subscription coffee box, which is good and you get 10% discount doing this option.

Overall I am glad that they sent me some coffee, as I will now be having good coffee at work instead of so-so coffee. I have already recommended www.singlcoffee.com to a few people for them to order, and take the coffee to work.

I will be ordering or having you as my coffee subscription box soon.

Thanks, guys and thanks for improving my coffee experience 🙂

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

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.
