Rose & Grants
After a day of boozing in Glasgow, followed by a fitful sleep in a chic hotel cupboard, I wasn’t sure what to do for breakfast. I did some wandering and soon alighted upon Rose & Grants on Trongate.
My initial interest had been piqued by reference to a macaro-nae-cheese pie on one of their signs. It turned out this was merely the tip of a broad selection of vegan treats peppered throughout their menu.
The place is spacious with an artistic feel. Service was a strength throughout with efficient and friendly waiters and waitresses ensurng my stay was entirely enjoyable.
To the inevitable pie I added their full vegan breakfast which brought together vegan lorne sausage, garlic mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, beans, toast and a tattie scone. I added tea as I’m not such a fan of the Bei & Nannini coffee they serve.
The breakfast items were all to a very good standard. The vegan lorne didn’t pack all the flavour that the one from BBL does but it had very convincing texture.
The pie wasn’t quite as good as while the filling hit the spot, the pastry didn’t benefit from having been re-heated.
So overall, I was glad to find such an accommodating spot as Rose & Grants for a re-energising breakfast. It’s a place to which I’d gladly return and would recommend to you, particularly if you follow a vegan diet.
