September 18, 2013 Breakfast, Glasgow 1 Comment



It’s starting to seem like the only reason I go to Glasgow is to eat bacon rolls, which is not true. It’s just that my recent excursions to the west have been for early morning meetings, and I generally find it hard to prepare food, however rudimentary, when I’m still half asleep, so tend not to take breakfast in my abode, when my day starts before 8am.

Today’s aimless wander took me to Bath Street and a nice little place called Cafe Zeus. When I arrived, they were having their windows washed, so I carefully stepped round the man at work and proceeded to the counter.

I was met with a friendly welcome, as I placed my order for a bacon roll and espresso. They run a breakfast deal, which meant that this combo set me back only £2.

I was soon on my way, having had time to sip my reasonable Rioba espresso, on the premises.



The lovely morning roll had a well-balanced crispness and softness to it, and the plentiful bacon filling was thick and satisfying. I enjoyed it.

So overall, I liked my flying visit to Cafe Zeus. Their lunchtime chalkboard looked pretty good, and I’m a recent convert to the wonders of smoothies, so I can see myself popping back here to try their other offerings, at some point in the future.
