What To Do On A Day Out In Vancouver

Breakfast To Bars: Where To Eat & Drink In Glasgow

Breakfast To Bars: Where To Eat & Drink In Glasgow

When I visited Glasgow for the first time a couple months ago, I didn’t have very high hopes for the foodie scene. As a vegetarian I was worried I might end up eating pizza my entire stay there. How wrong I was! Not only does Glasgow have a great pub scene, it also has some of the best vegan and vegetarian fare I’ve tried this side of the ocean. If you’re headed to Glasgow and aren’t sure where to go for delicious food and drink, check out this itinerary of where you should be eating (and drinking) on a day out and around town:

 

Breakfast

 

1

The Butterfly and the Pig

The Butterfly and the Pig does double duty as a chic restaurant by day and a cool pub by night. But you’ll definitely want to head here for breakfast (or brunch after a night out on the town). The mismatched furniture and vintage flavour of this place will have you wanting to spend an entire morning nibbling away at their hearty Scottish-style breakfast and sipping cup after cup of tea.

Lunch

The Flying Duck

If you think going vegan means your hotdog and hamburger eating days are behind you, think again. The Flying Duck is a bizarrely cool vegan diner that specializes in serving up great food and drinks. Everything is free from animal produce and absolutely delicious. The Flying Duck hosts live bands on the weekend, which makes for a great ambiance, and they’re firmly eco-conscious with their no-straws policy!

Coffee Break

The Cran

If you’re looking for a good place to kick back and regain your energy with a bracing cup of Joe, then you can’t do better than The Cran. This adorable little vegan and vegetarian café offers a lot of varieties of coffee, tea, baked goods, and other healthy fare. Everything is locally sourced, and they even have a part of the store dedicated to jewellery and other cool knick-knacks handmade by locals! Their iced lattes are pretty stellar, but you’ll feel spoiled with all the other amazing options too.

Lucky 7

What better way to finish off a day of sight-seeing around Glasgow than to unwind over a seriously good mojito? Head to Lucky 7, one of the Glasgow’s coolest (and most hipster) pubs. Lucky 7 is both a restaurant and a bar, so you can choose between sitting down for dinner, or simply having a couple drinks along with some popcorn—served up in a nifty camping mug. This is one of my favorite pubs in Glasgow, not just because of the mean mojito, but because it’s a chill, quiet place where you can really relax and think over your exciting day.
