Last week S and I headed along to Snugglemuffin for brunch after a surprise early finish at uni (and we went to see The Wolf of Wall Street afterwards, which I highly recommend - oh Leo!) and well, let's just say I've finally found my Glasgow brunch spot of choice.
Snugglemuffin offer an array of pancakes, waffles and french toast (as well as soup and sandwiches but, let's be honest, when there's french toast on offer I'm never going to plump for soup!) and we both opted for french toast - S's with marshmallow and mine with my all time favourite combo of bacon and maple syrup.
It was all perfectly cooked, American style french toast but, most importantly, NOT American style bacon. I was in heaven! As far as I'm concerned America does most foods well, but bacon and chocolate are not amongst them. American bacon always tastes dry, thin and salty to me - British bacon all the way! And here I've found somewhere that offers American style everything but with British style bacon - I couldn't dream up a better brunch spot myself. Both our plates were practically licked clean as far as social etiquette would allow and we were very happy customers.
We both opted for milkshakes, because when you're kicking your day off with french toast you may as well go the whole hog - banana for him and strawberry for me. These again were both amazing - really thick, full of flavour and incredibly filling - not at all those milkshakes you often get that are 10% milkshake and 90% froth.
In fact, they were so filling that we were both stuffed and despite Snugglemuffin (as the name suggests) being an amazing place for cakes and sweet treats we couldn't manage anymore - the two lots of french toast and two milkshakes came in at just over £15, so really reasonably priced too.
As well as looking beyond beautiful they tasted delicious, so much so that I had one of each thing on offer almost and couldn't find it in me to turn anything down or pass not he chance of another delicious morsel. Slimming world who?
Next time round I definitely want to give their afternoon tea a whirl!
