April 6, 2015 Breakfast, Glasgow No Comments

Where Berits & Brown once traded, the Wilson Street Pantry has recently opened. With a few minutes more in hand than my usual Glasgow breakfast roll dash permits, I toddled along to the Merchant City premises for a relaxed breakfast.

The place is much changed from previous incarnations. It has a sense of being design-led with a really smart interior in black and white. It was bright, airy and very impressive.

Eggs

The friendly counter man/waiter/owner was soon in attendance and brought espresso while I pondered my eating requirements. The espresso, by Glasgow roastery Papercup, was very good.

I settled upon a dish of “eggs black” with the ham of eggs Benedict replaced with black pudding. This was prepared to order by the chef in the open kitchen.

Arriving promptly, it looked very neat and tidy. It could have used a little more hollandaise, but aside from that it was a highly accomplished dish. The yolks of the poached eggs had well-judged ooze and the black pudding was of pleasing quality. I was thoroughly impressed.

So overall, the Wilson Street Pantry looks like a cracking new addition to the Glasgow dining scene. I can see it being very popular as a brunch and lunch spot, so look forward to many future visits, and will make a point of returning to try their house blend coffee roast, once this moves from idea to reality.
