If you’re looking for a very chill brunch spot on the Southside of Glasgow I’m not sure you’ll find anywhere more so than the very baby friendly, dog friendly and vegan friendly (holy trinity), Lagom Kitchen. It’s the kind of place you’d get stink eye in London if you tried to bring kids. Full of neutral decor, plants and people with interesting tattoos, on the day we visited it was staff entirely by women. Which I always dig.
Lagom is not a big space but they are, in spite of this, really accommodating to kids. There are Phil and Ted clip to the table highchairs and a baby change in their tiny loo which I was shocked to find given the size of the restaurant. If you’ve got a buggy, try and fold it, also there’s a few steps up to the main tables and I spied another table complete with two kiddos under one eating whilst we were there so it can absolutely work.
They serve wonderful, fresh, earthy breakfasty brunchy stuff and tremendous coffee with the occasional supper club thrown in in the evening and given the quality of the food, they’re mostly rammed at the weekend with a queue out the door and limit on table time. We sauntered in mid week and waited about 5 minutes. Max sat happily on some furry cushions instead of the highchair and had a custom ordered meal of sausage and plain toast which is a fail safe for us. Essentially, Lagom Kitchen was not made with kids in mind but they do everything they can to make it easy for you once you’re dining with them.
What’s good? The crab benedict and the ox cheek benedict are both absolutely wonderful, shout out to the pea pancakes which i thought would be dry and were a total delight. The array of vegan cakes by the door also top notch.
