Food Review: Maggie’s Cosy Cottage, 29 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, G69 6DY

Maggie’s Cosy Cottage is located in one of the few old building left in Baillieston.  A small indeed cosy building with a cafe at one side and a takeaway/bakery at the other side. We had visited the same location in  2009 when it was known as the Cottage Cafe (it now has new owners as well as a new name).

Inside it was warm and tables filled every possible space,  it was busy too and seemed to be popular with locals.

We were were quickly seated and handed menus.  A good selection of items such as breakfasts, toasties and main meals such as mac & cheese etc.

A big pot of loose leaf tea was delivered.  Good tea – not watery.

Breakfast £4.99

Not the best breakfast by any means, scrambled egg which was like a scrambled-poached hybrid, cold beans, undercooked potato scone, cremated sausage, but we were hungry so ate the lot. This also came with mixed toast and a Mrs.Bridges jam and marmalade.

Bacon, pancakes & maple syrup £3.99

Pancakes courtesy of Brownings from Kilmarnock, which were nice with 2 small rashers of bacon (only looks like 1 in the photo) – the bacon wasn’t the greatest but it was passable, and where else save a Wetherspoons pub are you going to find this for £3.99?

Overall, it’s cheap and sorta cheerful. Friendly staff and the shop/deli area had some decent items (mostly from the Browings range) but it’s not somewhere we’ll be rushing back to but then there’s not much choice for sitting-in in the Baillieston area.
