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.

I had been here many years ago, I think just before it closed for some sandwiches and coffee. I heard it hard recently opened so I thought I would pop in, have a small something and see how the renovation had changed it.

On entering it has changed a lot!!! what used to be where you would buy bits and bobs, and some jewellery its now all for you to sit in and have something to eat or drink.

Next door is now where you can purchas items.

Todays Order…

Scone with jam and clotted cream £4.25

The wait for this was a little longer than expected, but it did arrive warm so I am guessing it was maybe freshly made.

This was good, what can you say a scone with clotted cream and jam is just mmmm

Viennese Coffee £4.00
2 shots of espresso and whipped cream

On arrival, I took the photo right away. This did not look like what it should be, it looked like it should be something else (but it was the correct order)

A Viennese Coffee should not look like this, this just visually looked like a double espresso and that was it.

The coffee was nice but it was NOT what it says it was.

This is how it should be!

Overall

Overall the refurb for here was very nice, at the time of my visit it was only open maybe around the two weeks area.

Today’s visit was ok, I loved the scone but the coffee a massive disappointment!

At some point, I will go back and try the afternoon tea.

The last time I was here was probably over 6 years ago, but I remember it having good food and the best coffee I have ever had!!!

Today I decided to take a visit to see if its how I remembered, plus to have that amazing coffee again.

Before you continue please note that I forgot to take a photo of the coffee, it was the Malaysian Style Coffee (Hot) but OMG you HAVE!!!! to try this its a 10/10.

The Food…

Roti Canai £2.50

On arrival I thought hmm 2 would have been good, but this was just for lunch and I had another course coming.

To be honest one was perfect, and it was packed with flavour with and without the curry sauce.

Main Course

Deep Fried Chicken Wings £4.90
with a spicy coating

IMG_2037.jpg

So I am not great with anything spicy, but I thought ok lets try it.

This was not spicy one bit, the sauce had more kick than the chicken. It was just ok, yeah it was nice but just OK

Not sure if I would order this again.

Overall

A mixed visit today, starter and coffee mmmmm very good but a little dissapointed with the chicken wings.

I will definitely be going back to try more of the dishes, and to have more coffee.
