The sign in the window on the King’s Cafe proclaims it to be Glasgow’s oldest cafe. Certainly given its proximity to the wonderful art deco tower of the Beresford the sense of slightly faded grandeur is almost palpable.
For breakfast service, the King’s will do you a breakfast roll to take away or a full breakfast if you fancy sitting in. With a traditional chip shop counter, their little seating area in the rear looked quite smart. I was in takeaway mood though so chose a black pudding and potato scone roll.
I was given the choice of the soft or crispy morning roll, opting for the former, then things were topped off with brown sauce as is my usual requirement.
The roll proved to be very enjoyable. Two slices of nicely crisped black pudding were accompanied by the traditional tattie scone wedge. It was hearty fare and hit the spot nicely.
With a big cup of tea thrown in as well the pricetag of £2 was a nicely cheap and cheerful breakfast deal. The welcome was warm too making the whole experience a very pleasant one.
So overall, I was happy to find the King’s Cafe in my hour of breakfast need. I’d be happy to return next time I’m in the neighbourhood.
