Full vegan breakfast is always appreciated. The breakfast is all right, but can sometimes be dry, sometimes be too oily and never quite in between. However, there doesn't seem to be much variety with the fillings for panini, being heavily reliant on cheese.

Great vegan fry up

There were a few vegan breakfast options, rare to find a non vegan place which gives some choices instead of one set breakfast. I had the regular vegan breakfast and it was really lovely and filling.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great coffee, Lovely staff

Cons: Toilets were a bit dodgy

Vegan breakfast

Their vegan breakfast is fantastic. They also do an amazing vegan steak pie for New Years but it is rather pricey.

Excellent vegan options

I love the Brooklyn Cafe. They do the best vegan square sausage in Glasgow in my opinion.
I usually get takeaway rolls but went in for breakfast and it’s a great wee place. We had the vegan tower with hollandaise and a portion of cauliflower wings to share. It was all excellent, the hollandaise sauce is *really* good. The portions are big, so be prepared to take some food home!

Pros: Best vegan square sausage in Glasgow , Nice atmosphere , Nice staff

Good vegan options

The vegan breakfast was huge and very tasty. It did put me into a food coma afterwards though (my own fault for eating too much). We have also tried the vegan burger there which was ok. Nice staff and atmosphere.

Loads of options

There are lots of veganised versions of comfort food that vegans used to eat in pre-vegan days, e.g. steak pie and mac & cheese. It would take several trips to work through the menu. It's been quite a change on vegan food from years ago and they seem to be really working hard on gauging demand and continuing to grow their options and value vegan customer requirements.

Nice place for breakfast

Had the vegan tower with hollandaise sauce and it was pretty good. I'd definitely eat here again becuase there's good variety but the chef seems to love turmeric a bit too much.

Have been going here since I was wee and since then they have introduced the vegan menu. I absolutely this place, their vegan breakfast has got me through a few hangovers. Vegan steak pie is mouth watering !

Good vegan breakfast

The 'big vegan breakfast' is good and solid enough mostly though their scramble needs a little work. We're glad to have this on our doorstep in what can often feel like a pretty removed area for vegans to dine in.

Pros: A vegan menu separate from their non-vegan menu.

Cons: Expensive in places

Traditional Scottish breakfast with home made Lorne

The big vegan breakfast is huge. Big slabs of home made Lorne and the fried bread was excellent and something I’ve not had in years.

Big selection of vegan options including burgers, pies, and deserts.

4 stars is the max I give to non-vegan restaurants

One of the best breakfasts ever

This place does not do well to advertise its amazing vegan selection. We went for breakfast - the waiter was really friendly and helpful and the standard vegan breakfast was amazing. There were plenty of other options and lots on the menu for lunch and dinner too. Definitely come here for breakfast in Glasgow.

Pros: amazing breakfast, really great staff

Cons: have to ask for vegan menu

Daring Food Burger 😍

I had the Daring Foods 'chicken' burger with vegan garlic mayo and omg! My omni mum had the spicy burger and said it was amazing and she would pick vegan options at restaurants from now on. Win! I'll be back soon to try the vegan lasagne.

Pros: Lots of vegan options.

Nice cafe with vegan options

Nice wee cafe with separate vegan menu. Not open very late most days so can be tough to squeeze dinner in. Staff are friendly.

Get the Vegan Fry Up

The Brooklyn Cafe has a great vegan menu, the pancakes and fry up are both delicious. They also have vegan empire biscuits which are great. The main meal menu also looks great but I've always visited in the morning and picked breakfast food. Staff are friendly and helpful and it's a nice spot. Would give 5 stars if I could!

Pros: Lots of options, Nice staff

I've visited the Brooklyn for years. What a brilliant surprise to find a full vegan menu. Probably got more choice than many vegan restaurants. If you're around the area definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Vegan menu, Traditional cafe

Cons: Serves meat

Very nice food, but not cheap

The vegan menu here has more options than most fully vegan restaurants offer. The meals all sound like they would be very fatty (like a lot of food in Glasgow), but turn out to be actually quite nice and soggy with fat.

If you are after some good-quality hearty meals and don't mind spending 10 pounds per person (plus drinks!), then this is a good place to go.

Pros: Huge selection, Nice hearty food

Cons: A bit pricey

Extensive vegan menu

Only stopped in for a coffee and cake (turned into a hot chocolate) but had a look through the separate vegan menu and will definitely be back - great choice for breakfast/lunch/dinner and veg relaxed atmosphere. Staff were all lovely and food looked delicious - can’t wait to try out the menu fully!

Great vegan choices

Great little gem of a place, it has great, different vegan options. I had the vegan buffalo wings and seitan escalopes with chocolate and orange milk shake which was amazing!

Some lovely different choices, we were there predominantly for the wings, which was well worth it!

Pros: Great choices on separate vegan menu, Nice atmosphere

Great wee café

Great place, friendly staff, and good, reasonably priced food. Some of the best sweet potato fries I’ve had (and a sweet chilli seitan panini which was also very nice). Finished off with a lovely vegan empire biscuit :) will be back

Cons: Could be tough to find street parking nearby
