A popular Glasgow cafe on London Road has been named one of the best places in the UK to get brunch by a top chef.

The eatery was featured in a new list curated by The Times newspaper which looked for the country's best spots for a "long and lazy weekend".

Discussing the list, the publication said: "No long and lazy weekend is complete without brunch. Everything about it is laid-back, from the loose timings (anything from early morning to mid-afternoon) to the eclectic menu.

"Sweet American-style pancakes? Yes please! Classic full English? Why not?! This selection of favourite brunch destinations from some of the UK’s leading chefs includes an Indian-influenced menu in Bath and an Australian-style one in Belfast."

Outlier on London Road was praised by the chef-patron of Glasgow's Celentano’s, Dean Parker, who described the brunch spot as having a "nice bustly atmosphere."

He told The Times: “Anna, my wife, and I always share their toasted sourdough with egg, chilli oil and oyster mushroom, and their apple cider vinegar muffins with whatever seasonal veg topping they do.

"Pastries are always fresh and taste amazing, including croissants and banana bread, and their coffee from local roastery the Good Coffee Cartel is lovely.

"If we are both off on a Sunday we take our son, Fred, and we always take friends there when they come to visit. We also try to get the team some pastries from there on a Sunday pre-service if we have time after a busy week.”

Other locations in Scotland included Papii in Edinburgh which was said to "do a good selection of brunchy stuff" and Café Cùil in Carbost on the Isle of Skye which was praised for its "super-relaxed atmosphere".
