Westender @ The Brunch Club

by Amy Glasgow @theglasgowdiet

Walk past this corner of Old Dumbarton Road and Yorkhill Street almost any day of the week, and you’ll often find a number of folk hanging around in what might seem like an aimless fashion. In reality, they are eagerly and hungrily awaiting a table at one of the west ends most popular brunch spots these days  – the aptly named Brunch Club.

If you show up any later than 11am, especially on a weekend, be prepared to wait. This dog friendly, walk-in only cafe offering all day brunch is almost always queued out the door, and having visited on more than one occasion, I have to say, I understand why.

What’s on Offer?

What The Brunch Club offers is not just your classic brunch menu, but a whole host of recognisable dishes alongside others that are new, unique and exciting. If you want to keep things simple, opt for the massive T.B.C Breakfast, a good old Eggs Benedict, or if you have more of a sweet tooth, Pancakes with Bacon and Maple Syrup.

If, however, you are feeling more adventurous, this is where the fun begins. Swap the classic Eggs Benny for Eggs Carnitas, with pulled pork, sriracha hollandaise and crispy onions, or take your waffles to a whole new level by topping them with fried chicken.

I must admit, this is my guilty pleasure. Soft, fluffy waffles topped with Hennessy butter, maple syrup and crispy fried chicken. It is, above all else, extremely indulgent, but it is an absolute treat on an occasional lazy Sunday after a wander around Kelvingrove Park.

The menu is completed by some more healthy options, like granola bowls, porridge, and smoothies – I recommend the Jump Start, a mix of passion fruit, blueberry, lemon and pineapple. If you’re in the mood for something a bit more adult though, they also offer a great selection of classic cocktails – they even have FOUR different Bloody Marys to choose from.

If you want to treat yourself on a Saturday, although it’s available every day, go for their Boozy Brunch deal, which includes a main, a Bellini or Mimosa, and two cocktails of your choice for £30.

Personally, I’m heading back soon to get my hands on their French Toast soldiers served with Nutella for dipping. Can you tell I’ve got a sweet tooth?!
