Trans Europe Cafe is a cosy cafe just a bit away from the main hustle and bustle of the city. I had a good experience here, the food and coffee was good and the staff we spoke to were friendly. However, service was a tad slow and while cosy it was maybe just bordering on cramped. Overall the cafe was... More

I visited this place with my boyfriend and he had his very first English breakfast and I had Eggs Alba, both for brunch. The food was absolutely delicious, it was really nice when served, and we loved the service! The owner was really friendly and helpful, even for our plans in town. I would definitely come back!

We both had egg dishes, which were very good and filling. All the other dishes I saw going out looked very good too. Would go back - only if I didn't have anywhere else to go later, however, as both of us came out smelling of fried food due to the poor ventilation. At its worst the front window is... More

Service was great, food was excellent. Walked in for breakfast to delicious smells of soup simmering in the kitchen. Breakfast was fast and fresh. Coffee great too.

We fancied a breakfast at 2 in the afternoon and we're certainly not disappointed! Very very friendly and genuinely one of the best breakfasts. Definitely the best omelette I've ever had. Worth visiting any time of the day!

I have been hee a good few times and never been disappointed, cracking brunch menu available all day for those of use that aren't morning people. The staff are superb and the food is great. A chorizo omelette with crunchy toast is a good start to any Sunday!

Came here after googling best eggs Benedict in Glasgow as my wife was craving it and Tripadvsior lead us to here. Brilliant wee spot tucked away just off argyle street. Quirky decor inside, really liked the map of the world tiles and old bus seat chairs. Great breakfast and service, highly recommend.

Thank scottishworker
