With a curious schedule ahead that wouldn’t see me get a break for lunch until around 3pm, I thought a fried breakfast was justifiable. I set sail for Tollcross in the direction of the Quick & Plenty Cafe, which I’d spotted when I was visiting The Treehouse, the other day.

A neat little diner with half a dozen booth tables, it’s a compact place with a down-at-heel charm. The seats have seen better days, but it has a happy, settled feel to it.

The counter man couldn’t have been more polite and attentive. Once I’d placed my order for a full breakfast (their middle-sized one) he set about cooking it in the little cabin kitchen.

It promptly arrived accompanied by tea and a buttered roll. It proved to be an enjoyable eat. I popped the bacon and black pudding on to a roll, topped it with brown sauce and munched. It was good stuff.

The remaining items, a nicely cooked egg, lorne and link sausage and a tomato were all to a decent standard, too. Eye-catchingly bonnie, no, but tasty nevertheless.

So overall, Quick & Plenty lived up to its name. It provided me with a hearty breakfast that saw me through the day in good style. I can see myself coming back for another visit, not least because the friendly service is first class.
