Wigtown café narrowly misses out on brekkie title

A Wigtown cafe came runner-up in the Best Breakfast Awards this week for its Full Wigtown Breakfast.

The Glaisnock Cafe on South Main Street in Scotlan’d national book town was beaten to the top spot by a guest house on the Isle of Tiree but came in a close second in the Scotland category after public votes were counted up.

The national competition was part of a week-long series of events aimed at highlighting the importance of eating breakfast.

The awards were open to food venues of all types, from cafés through to pubs, restaurants, hotels, B&Bs and even food vans with winners decided by a public vote.

Other mouthwatering dishes on offer at the Glaisnock include homemade soups, freshly baked rolls, dishes such as Chicken Satay made with Barscobe Castle Scottish Peanut Butter and served with seasonal lettuce, haddock fillet in homemade beer batter served with handcut chips, seasonal salad and lemon, haggis neeps and tatties, traditional homemade steak pie or Thai Green Chicken or Vegetable Curry.

The cafe is just one of a rang of local food outlets celebrating VisitScotland’s Year of food and Drink throughout 2015 with a range of activities and events to promote the country’s tasty delights.
