September 9, 2014 Breakfast, West 1 Comment



CJ’s Cafe, on Dalry Road, is one I’ve walked past on a number of occasions, but not previously at a time when I was hungry. I was in need of their breakfast delights, today, so stopped in while congested traffic slithered outside.

I kept things simple by ordering their full breakfast which came with a choice of coffee or tea. I opted for the latter which arrived in a big mug and was in the builder’s style.



Their main dining area is bedecked in film posters, with particular attention to James Bond. It’s really quite smart and was a very pleasant surprise to me.

Once items were cooked to order, they were soon with me. It was a substantial offering. It packed in two link sausages, lorne sausage, bacon, two fried eggs, black pudding, hash browns, beans, and a tattie scone.



The eggs were beautifully cooked and the rest of the items were good. The link sausages were really poor, though, with very little flavour.

The toast was a little burnt, but after a couple of run-ins with pale toast, I was more than happy with that. It came with a little jam and marmalade, too, which was a nice touch.

So overall, I rather enjoyed CJ’s. They do a tasty breakfast and the interior has a nice bit of character about it. I’d be happy to visit again next time I’m in need of a substantial morning feed in this neighbourhood.
