10 places to eat... breakfast

It's the most important meal of the day, and surely the only way to see in a hard-earned weekend.

Yelp is here to help you get something substantial in your stomach in the AM. You'll find something to get those taste buds ready for the day in Glasgow and Edinburgh, thanks to Yelpers reviews!

Trans-Europe Café

25 Parnie Street, Glasgow

Lynne M says "their all day breakfast is so filling you probably won't need any dinner later! I'd recommend heading there on a weekend evening if you want good, tasty, non-fussy food, with a great atmosphere, and always a good place for breakfast/brunch."

Snax Café

118 Buccleuch Street, Edinburgh

"Their breakfast rolls, for example egg and bacon, are always lovely, any time of the day, the egg never dehumidified during frying, but with a nice, gooey core, that oozes into the bun - just right," says El A.

The Left Bank

35 Gibson Street, Glasgow

"The Lebanese Breakfast was sensational" says Pammi G. "It consisted of fried halloumi, shakshuka (spicy chickpeas ragout & baked egg), batata harra (potatoes sautéed with garlic, coriander and chilli) and warm toasted pitta."

Kilimanjaro Coffee

104 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh

"I like coffee very much," says Gabriella V, "and this place offers good strong coffee for those craving for caffeine. Breakfast is very good too. They've got the typical English breakfast (or Scottish since it's served with haggis?) and a veggie option (must be pointed out that their vegetarian haggis is excellent!)"

The Wee Guy's Café Deli

51 Cochrane Street, Glasgow

"I got a double yolk (lucky me!) fried egg and tattie scone roll." Ryan W loves that "the rolls were crispy and fresh and my egg was perfectly cooked. The great ingredients really stand out and make for a great breakfast."

Mums

4a Forrest Road, Edinburgh

While they have "varieties of bangers and mash" Paddy H says there are "also great breakfast options, the black pudding roll I had was fab. Things are simple at mums, but its tasty and affordable. Good job!"

Cafezique

70 Hyndland Street, Glasgow

Michelle M went for a "fresh orange juice, latte and a full breakfast. The order came faster than I was expecting due to how busy the place was and for the most part, it was as good as I remembered."

City Restaurant

33 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh

David S says this is "a decent chip shop with a side line in all day breakfasts and grills. There is plenty of seating (there is more seating upstairs) and the staff are friendly enough. So if you fancy a breakfast or chips and want to escape the cold City Restaurant is fairly pleasant."

Avenue G

291 Byres Road, Glasgow

Gordon M sampled the breakfast; "two slices of crispy bacon (with a pot of maple syrup on the side), a Cumberland sausage, a chorizo sausage, a chunk of black pudding, two tattie scones, a baked egg, a pot of beans and two pieces of toast. All cooked well and definitely not 'greasy spoon' cooking, each item was delicious."

Peter's Yard

27 Simpson Loan, Edinburgh

Elizabeth G recommends you try the "fruit buns … with custard cream and entire raspberries or blueberries. Wash that down with a cardamom hot chocolate or a cappuccino, and you have the breakfast of dreams."
