September 20, 2015 Breakfast, Glasgow No Comments



Monday morning. Glasgow. A bacon roll seemed inevitable. Without much time to spare, I decided to pick a venue near to where I needed to be for my meeting which directly followed, so opted for the Lunch Box, a little cafe next to Charing Cross station.

It’s not the most auspicious looking place, but the tables had lovely marble tops and iron stands. These were rather incongruous but a welcome stylistic high-point.

With a breakfast roll in mind I ordered one filled with black pudding and bacon on a crisp morning roll. This was prepared to order by the friendly counter folks.

I took a seat at one of the tables and sipped on a refreshing cuppa. My item soon arrived looking rather good in a smiley frog-mouth way.

It proved extremely good eating, with two good slices of black pudding and profuse rashers of crisp bacon. It was packed with flavour and deeply satisfying.

So overall, I was impressed with the Lunch Box’s offering. Its humble appearance belies the quality of their grub, with their lunchtime menu looking as tempting as the breakfast selection proved to be. Stop in next time you need a tasty roll in this part of town.
