E Street Cafe


Established in 2019, The E Street Cafe has cemented itself as one of the go-to brunch destinations in Glasgow’s Southside and a shrine for fans of New Jersey superstar Bruce Springsteen. All the “greatest hits” from any brunch spot can be found here, played with an original twist. Favourites include the “ Southside Johnny” - a stadium sized stack comprised of sourdough, potato scone, smoked bacon, Stornoway pudding, farm eggs, San Marzano arrabbiata ketchup and onion crumb, or the daily hot cakes that change with the seasons.

Husband and wife team Paul and Kerry grew up in the neighbourhood, and after years of learning their trade around restaurants, cafes and hotels they decided to roll the dice and offer contemporary food, friendly service and great coffee to the people of G44.
"We thought about what we'd like to have on our doorstep instead of traipsing into town or over to the west end...why can't there be somewhere doing brunch here? The aim was to do all the work ourselves and try to earn a wage, however the place has grown arms and legs, so we now have ex colleagues who are like family to us working full time alongside us."

Open 7 days from 9.30AM “ Sit tight, take hold , Clarkston Road....”

Greenwoods opened its doors for the first time on the Singel canal in Amsterdam on the 15th of September 1988. The restaurant made a name for itself for being the original hot spot for everyone's breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea desires in the city.

In June 2010 Dutchman Daniel took over and re-invigorated the venue, and introduced a few classic breakfast options that you will recognise, Eggs Benedict anyone? Two years later in 2012, a second location was opened on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam. This is when Jen Nelson, a Scottish lass, was brought on board. Jen grew into the role of General Manager and managed both Amsterdam locations.

In 2020 the opportunity arose for the team to open a third location in Edinburgh and for Jen to move home after 10 years, whilst taking part of Greenwoods with her. In May 2021 Greenwoods opened its doors on Frederick Street in Edinburgh.

We pride ourselves in sourcing top quality local ingredients and make most of our products freshly on the premises. And of course, we also brought a hint of our Dutch roots with us as well. You’ll find it on the menu and in the restaurant interior itself. Fancy some traditional Dutch ‘Appeltaart’ (apple pie)?

Tucked away on the historic banks of Speirs Wharf, lies Ocho Café, one of Glasgow’s hidden treasures, which is becoming increasingly, not so hidden, anymore. You would be forgiven for not knowing that just a short walk from Cowcaddens subway lies one of the most scenic parts of the city, but trust us, it’s worth the exploration.

Open 7 days but with only eight tables, make sure to book, as this little place is fast becoming one of Glasgow’s most coveted brunch spots. Expect eclectic décor, a warm welcome, beautifully plated meals, and an insta-worthy autumnal flower display to sip a Pumpkin Spiced Latte under, (with caramel, cream, and roasted seeds of course). They are dog friendly both inside and out, so expect to see as many pups as you do humans at each table.

Home of the Build–your–own-Brunch menu, and with every dish fully prepared at point of order, the strictest of dietaries or fussiest of eaters are sure to be catered for. Vegan and vegetarian options account for over half the menu, and almost all dishes can be made gluten free.

Local bakers complete the experience, meaning you can’t possibly leave without one of the delicious cakes on display, or taking your own Soja’s Bakehouse Sourdough or Corrie Mains Eggs with you. Get your coffee to go and set off down the Firth and Forth Canal to the nature reserve for a truly special Brunch Experience.

TriBeCa has become an institution for brunch, serving up a little slice of NYC in Glasgow. It can be found nestled on Bell Street in the heart of the Merchant City.

A casual, fun and friendly New York Kitchen offering all the breakfast goodness you associate with that perfect weekend brunch. TriBeCa pancake stacks tower high and can be creatively selected to suit a sweet or savoury tooth – go for a classic bacon and maple syrup combo or mix it up with berries, chocolate chips and a homemade sauce – the options are endless.

For those rather worse for wear there is no cure better than the Manhattan Grandslam. Three eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, tomato, beans, mushrooms and toast...this is the only way to set you up for the weekend ahead. How am I going to wash that down you might be asking? With barista made coffee, a wide selection of teas or the TriBeCa go-to smoothies of course.

Catering to vegetarians and vegans alike is no problem for TriBeCa. The Vegan Central offers an imaginative take on the classic fry-up with items including grilled aubergine, crushed avocado and vegan bacon – a far cry from the usual beans on toast option many vegans have become used to.

TriBeCa makes kids feel right at home with the playful options to create their own french toast, waffles or pancake combinations and the snow blizzard drinks are a feast for both the eyes and the tummy!

To load up on this American brunch goodness, pop in to the Bell Street Kitchen, Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday 9am – 4pm.
