Since re-opening last year Singl-End has fast become a foodie favourite. With fresh, wholesome ingredients, the basement restaurant caters to every diet without any compromise on flavour. Vegans, vegetarians and the gluten intolerant are well catered for here with a wide variety of options available and clearly marked. Their impressive bread menu featured everything from dense nut loafs with olives to the more familiar sour doughs and "hovis" browns. The Eggs Benedict looked gorgeous with it's cashew hollandaise but the winner for me was the puy lentil salad. Served with cherries and Gorgonzola it's the perfect balance of tart and salty. Finished with poached quails eggs it's ideal for those looking for a light lunch.
Even if you don't want a full meal the cake selection alone is worth visiting for. Rich, gooey brownies are piled high next to bread and butter panettone pudding, peanut butter cookies and rose and pistachio cakes. Looking for something a bit more wholesome? The smoothie selection will convert anyone to Singl End. I would happily only drink their coconut and raspberry smoothie every day for the rest of my days.
Based on Renfrew Street near the Art School, Singl End is a bit further away than my usual haunts. Worth the trip though? Definitely.
