great food - Edit

As a vegan I really enjoyed most of what I had here - the French toast in particular was great, and the roll was good. The croissant was alright but not as good as in Picnic or the Cran.

I didn't really enjoy the pie - it was dry and poorly heated. The ice cream (raspberry) ripple was fantastic.

Nice staff, nice atmosphere, good coffee

Pros: Vegan Haggis Pie and Beans

Cons: Not a totally vegetarian or vegan venue

Overrated vegan breakfast - Edit

I thought I'd check out Rose & Grants full vegan breakfast because I'd heard a lot about it.

First of all, to call it a 'full' breakfast is going a bit far. It's a potato scone, some beans in a cup, a few mushroom, 4 small tomatoes, a slice of toast (!) and their vegan square sausage.

I was massively underwhelmed by all of the above and I thought the square sausage tasted much like a normal vegan sausage, so nothing special. Overall, very average and not very creative.

Lastly, I didn't find the staff particularly friendly.

There are better, fully vegan options nearby, so I'll not be returning to Rose and Grants again anytime soon.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: Poor value for money, surly staff

Vegan square sausage!!! - Edit

Pleasant cafe with separate vegan menu. Nearly fainted with joy when I saw vegan square sausage - so ordered the full vegan breakfast, and very nice it was too! Also ordered a vegan macaroni pie to take away for my lunch later on... which was absolutely delicious. What a treat! Will definitely visit again when I am next in Glasgow.

Pros: Plenty vegan options., Reasonably priced.

Great vegan menu - Edit

This place created a vegan version of a Scottish delicacy, the "Square sausage", which got them some social media coverage (and I believe a lot of negativity from punters with not much else to do with their time than moan about some fried plant ingredients mushed together, fried, and put on a roll. Priorities...). They mention some vegan option or two on their outside sandwich board, and post of new vegan items in stock on their Facebook page, but it is a bit disappointing they don't have their vegan menu in the window. If I wasn't so active in using the.web to get vegan tips and news I'd unlikely think there was much for me going by the menus they do have in the window.

I ordered a soya latte with caramel syrup, which came minus syrup and I had to ask for it to be added. For food I ordered the roll and square sausage and added a potato scone and also ordered a macaroni pie made from vegan cheese - bought in from Glasgow-based vegan company 'Cool Jerk Vegan'. They also buy in vegan cheese and butter alternatives from 'Nutcrafter' (also Glasgow-based), and vegan and gluten free raw cakes. I've eaten these mac nae cheese pies before but it was a lovely novelty to eat one in a cafe with baked beans. Normally they don't last long enough after I've bought them to take home to have as a meal.

Pros: Support local vegan producers, Growing range of vegan options

Cons: Menu not obvious to passersby

Second time lucky - Edit

First tried to eat here on the day of the Great Scottish Run but they had been forced to shut their kitchen as they had run out of food. Left disappointed but swore I'd return for the vegan square sausage.

Returned a couple of weeks later and it was worth the wait. Great rolls and square sausage (a Scottish delicacy) and if that wasn't enough, the waitress remembered me from my first attempt and apologised that they couldn't serve me.

My wife is vegetarian and she had a veggie breakfast, which she really enjoyed.

We have added this to our where to go for breakfast list and am sure we'll be back soon.

Pros: Central Glasgow, Square Sausages!, Friendly staff

Vegan fried breakfast - Edit

Rose & Grant's have a separate vegan menu, and they serve a full vegan scottish breakfast (including a vegan square sausage), all day, every day. For healthier options, the soup is always vegan and they also have a variety of vegan salads, sandwiches, and specials. They also have recently started serving raw vegan cake, vegan pies, and vegan chocolate all from locally sourced suppliers in Glasgow.

Pros: Big portions, Free wi-fi, Tasty Bei & Naninni coffee

Cons: Only plant milk available is soy., Closes at 5pm.
