October 6, 2015 Breakfast, Glasgow No Comments



Another Glasgow Monday; another bacon roll in the Bath Street region. This morning’s lucky winner was the Melt Cafe, just behind Charing Cross.

With a smart interior bedecked with reclaimed church pews, the welcome was warm and breakfast deals competitively priced.

I slightly broke their “bacon roll and a tea/coffee for £3” thing by adding black pudding to the mix, but this only elevated things to a very reasonable £3.70.

Having selected a crispy roll over a soft roll, the friendly counter woman was soon selecting the finest bits and bobs from the chafing dishes and piling them onto the roll.

I’d decided to sit-in so eschewing the pews I took up residence at one of the window shelf seats where items soon arrived.



The roll was really good, but the filling was pretty routine fare. It did the job but without much flair. I quickly munched and was on my way.

So overall, there were aspects of the Melt Cafe that worked for me, but others that didn’t quite. Still, it’s hard to argue against a fresh-as-a-daisy crisp morning roll so I was left fairly content. I look forward to visiting again.
