Tucked away at the tail end of Thornwood, bright eatery Bru is just a short walk from Partick station.
Newly renovated, the space is bright, light and full of quirky features, including wallpaper adorned with golden springboks and dried flower arrangements.
Friendly and attentive, the staff went above and beyond.
As well as a brunch menu available from 9am to 4pm, Bru also offers a dinner selection filled with small plates, pizza, sides and desserts – pretty much everything you could fancy on a lazy weekend morning or to accompany a wee Friday night drink.
Focusing on local produce and seasonal ingredients, dishes are inspired by the cuisine of South African (where the owner was born) offering diners something a little different. Everything is clearly labelled and the staff are happy to adapt dishes for dietary requirements.
We visited on a dreich Friday night so carbs were essential. To start, we opted for dukkha crusted cauliflower (light and perfect for snacking) and the restaurant’s signature dish, bunny chow.
A riff on the popular South African street food, the kitchen take a crusty Morton’s roll and stuff it with a chickpea and sweet potato curry for, quite frankly, a flavour sensation. Delicious. Next, we ordered a pizza each; a vegan courgette and pesto version for me, and chunky chicken and chorizo for my (very not vegan) partner. Our plates were scraped clean within minutes.
Warm and welcoming, Bru is a great little spot for a laid-back bite.
Very reasonable. Small plates start from £6 and pizza from £8.
