279 Cafe Bistro (West End, Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I always just passed here when I was in the West End, and always thought it looked nice.

Today I finally took a visit and checked out what they have and the atmosphere.

The Lunch

French Toast £7
Bacon & Maple Syrup

As you all know by now I have a sweet tooth, so when I spotted this on the menu I knew I had to order this as it sounded too good not to have.

On arrival, this looked and smelled really good, so after a few quick pics, it was time to pour the syrup and dig right in.

This tasted as good as it looks, and the french toast was the best I have had and it all worked really well.

I could easily have had more of this today, but I didn’t want to come over like a pig 🙂

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

Today’s visit was very nice, the cafe has a very relaxing atmosphere and the menu choice is very good.

I will be going back, as I would like to try a few more dishes so keep watching and if you are in the area do check them out.

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!!!

Value for Money : 5


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.
