My trip to Cafe Strange Brew was long overdue. But I am a city centre girl, so hopefully the distance makes it a little more forgivable. I can’t quite remember where I heard about the Cafe, but it was fresh in my mind after their collaboration with El Perro Negro in July. They’re always cropping up on Glasgow blogs so I assume I read about it somewhere else too…
I didn’t really know anything about the cafe before my visit, and I guess it was smaller than I expected. But so welcoming and cosy. I’d say it would sit no more than 15 or so people, so it’s never going to be uncomfortably cramped. I think we were sitting right at the back of the restaurant, so hopefully the first photo gives you an impression of the size.
We were seated quickly, and eyeing up the menu within a couple of minutes. I knew I wanted eggs (when do I not) and opted for the “That Guy’ – poached with avocado, chilli hollandaise, on sourdough. Rick went for the maple & smoked bacon french toast . Both dishes were delicious and really reasonably priced for a cheeky brunch.
The sandwiches looked great and I didn’t caffeinate while I was there. Two very important reasons to go back to Cafe Strange Brew – a deli sandwich and a Dear Green latte.
So along we went to escape a rainy day – and here are the snaps.
