Nothing satisfies like an enormous plate of French toast, fluffy eggs mixed perfectly with doughy bread to create a combination of light brown heaven.

Voulez Vous toasts Francais? Oh sorry, we meant, would you like French Toast?

The answer will always be Yes. Yes. Yes. (Especially if its the morning after the night before.)

Glasgow Living absolutely loves French toast and we’re certain you do to Glasgow. So we bring you six of the best cafe/restaurants with French toast on the menu.

P.S We like ours with sugar on top, how about you?

te rooms
The Willow Tea Rooms

6. Willow Tearooms – Sauchiehall Street

The world famous Willow Tearooms on Sauchiehall Street has a special place in the heart of Glasgow. First opened in 1903. Completely designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, it was the first time the Glaswegian designer had been asked to design a full tea room on his own.

Enough of the damn history lesson I hear you cry.

Well the French toast is sublime, very generous helpings, and if you’re weird like some of the team at Glasgow Living and ask for sugar on your french toast, they will accommodate your request, (without staring as if you’re a bit of a mentalist.) The menu offers a variety of food to accompany your French toast, bacon, sausage etc. Regularly voted as one of Glasgow’s best tea rooms,  Easy to find, hard to forget. Wonderful.

5. Cafe Wander – West George Street

With an average Trip Advisor rating of four and a half out of five, Cafe Wander is one of Glasgow’s best breakfast restaurants and even received a Certificate of Excellence due to the constantly high quality food.

Cafe Wander serves brilliant French toast with bacon for under the fiver mark and they also supply a jug of maple syrup for those with a sweet tooth.

Opened from 7:30 in the morning and 9am at the weekends, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t “wander” into Cafe Wander and try their delightful French toast.

North Star

4. North Star – Queen Margaret Drive

North Star’s French toast on Queen Margaret Drive has been described by customers as, “THE BEST FRENCH TOAST EVER”.

The portions are also very generous, with added maple syrup poured delicately over the French toast, gluten free options are available as well.

Open since 1999, North Star has become an important part of the fabric in Glasgow’s West End.

Specialising in breakfast and lunch, North Star’s prices are also incredibly reasonable, meaning lunch will leave you with more than bus fare in your pocket.


3. TriBeCa – Dumbarton Road

A Glasgow institution TriBeCa promises a slice of Big Apple eating, and delivers a slam dunk on its promise.

With three premises in Glasgow, TriBeCa is massively popular for a reason.

Enormous portions of fantastically thick bread make for delicious French toast, prices are pretty decent as well, vegetarian options are available.

The menu offers French toast on the day menu, and trust us you will definitely not need seconds.

Additional toppings are also available.

hyndland cafe
The Hyndland Cafe

2. The Hyndland Cafe – Clarence Drive

What the Hyndland Cafe lacks in size it makes up for in quality and personality.

Specialising in home cooking, the menu is cooked and baked daily, with the French toast being a particular favourite.

The customer service is so amazing that if you really can’t face the outside world, they will bring the food to your door, (and probably feed you if you asked nicely.)

Prices are fantastic as well. Very highly recommended

cafe gandolfi2
Cafe Gandolfi

1. Cafe Gandolfi – Albion Street

Fresh from being recognised by the mighty Esquire magazine as one of Britain’s best restaurants for breakfast, Cafe Gandolfi has received an even grander accolade, Glasgow Living’s top French Toast.

In our opinion the best French toast in Glasgow

Cooked with Brioche bread, Cafe Gandolfi helps you remember why you fell in love with French toast in the first place.

Served with fruit, cream and maple syrup, there’s no better start to the day.

Whether it be the first class service, exceptional quality of the food or very reasonable prices, there’s a reason why Gandolfi repeatedly wins awards.

Thumbs up.
