A popular Glasgow bakery has unveiled its "luxurious" new look after reopening with enhanced breakfast and lunch menus. 

After closing for two weeks, Valaria in Byres Road will reopen its doors on Monday (February 5) following a refurbishment – but its popular croissants and Parisian hot chocolate will remain. 

The bakery is part of the Six Company group, which includes Six By Nico restaurants in Finnieston and Merchant City.

The bakery says its refurbishment has given more space for diners to enjoy the menu, with a new counter and additional seating. 

Meanwhile, Valaria has also unveiled a new lunch menu, including a curated selection of seasonal salads. 

The Parisian Hot Chocolate – which created a buzz on TikTok in 2023 – will remain on the drinks list, with further plans to "elevate" the drink coming soon.

India Dhami, brand manager at Valaria, said: “We are always looking for ways to improve, to surprise and delight our customers old and new.

"We planned this pause a while ago and we’ve managed to fit a lot into a couple of weeks – we can’t wait to welcome our guests back in for some artisanal indulgence.

“We’ve listened to what our customers love, and what they want. The result is what visitors to Valaria will be able to enjoy from next week.

“We’ve created what we truly believe is a destination venue which will provide a haven for locals and visitors alike to revel in new breakfast and lunch rituals. 

"Our focus has been designing a menu that elevates those experiences. It’s an exciting new chapter in Valaria’s story.”
Nico Simeone launched 111, his debut restaurant, in 2015, followed by the  original Six by Nico which launched in Finnieston in 2017.

Edinburgh, Belfast, Manchester soon followed, and Six Company now has 11 restaurants across the UK and Ireland, with Valaria its first all-day eatery and bakery.
