As has been frequently the case, of late, today’s eating excursion to Glasgow was at breakfast time. I’d heard good things about the Wee Guy’s Cafe, on Cochrane Street, so headed there, straight from Queen Street station.
The place is airy and spacious, with solid wooden tables, and a number of shelf seats. I opted for the latter, which gave me both a good angle for people watching and a good view over the interior space.
Counter service was helpful and friendly. I was in breakfast roll mood, but paused for a while to contemplate what to match with some Stornoway black pudding. Simultaneously, the counter woman said egg, while I said bacon. We discussed the merits of both, settling upon bacon, after careful consideration.
I took my seat, sipped a decent espresso, and awaited my roll. It arrived promptly, looking simple and fresh. I lifted the lid to apply some brown sauce in between the black pudding slice and the two rashers of back bacon.
The roll proved to be excellent, and a cut above the others I’ve sampled in the west. It pushed Edinburgh’s finest, the tripler from Copper Bird, pretty close for the top I’ve had on quests. Both meaty elements were packed with flavour and deeply satisfying, and the roll was light and crisp, too. It was a highly impressive item.
So overall, Wee Guy’s was a really smart place, serving high quality breakfast items. I look forward to another visit, where I’ll have to try either one of their homemade pies or their burger, both of which sounded really good from their menu descriptions. I’d heartily recommend a visit, next time you’re in these parts.
