My travels sometimes take me to the most unlikely spots and today was no exception to that. I found myself in Bridgeton in Glasgow’s east end in need of a breakfast time feed.
With the Glasgow Women’s Library just nearby, I came across Sucre, a wee cafe on Main Street. I popped in after establishing they had some reasonable looking breakfast options.
I ordered poached eggs and bacon on toast from the friendly counter man, opting for brown toast. I added an espresso which was a fairly unremarkable Italian roast, but served in a smart metallic cup.
As the haunting notes of The Specials’ Ghost Town wafted through the place, my items were soon with me on a smart glass plate. The egg yolks were sadly solid, which is always a let-down, but the bacon was good and so was the toast. It chased breakfast hunger away in decently good style.
So overall, I enjoyed my visit to Sucre. It’s a friendly wee place and a buzzing part of the community. It would be good if they could improve their poached eggs, but I’d happily revisit if in the neighbourhood again.
