Big Yellow Taxis & Pancake Stacks

Location: TriBeCa Café Bar, Dumbarton Road, Glasgow

The Triangle neighbourhood Below Canal Street, Lower Manhattan, is where New York’s A-listers call home.

The vibrant creative community, borne from a group of artists setting up squats in abandoned industrial warehouses in the 60s, now boasts its own film festival, culture and six-figure real estate.

This trendy urban pocket even coaxed Brooklyn-born rapper Jay Z out of the hood.

“Yeah I’m out that Brooklyn, now I’m down in Tribeca, right next to De Niro, but I’ll be hood forever” Jay Z, Empire State of Mind.

The Glasgow version

A little closer to our own reality is Dumbarton Road’s take on New York hotspot, TriBeCa.

There’s no De Niro’s or Beyonces to bump into in this neck of the woods, but plenty of nods to the American culture us Brits can’t seem to get enough of.

Stacks of thick buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and berries, slabs of French toast with bacon and colossal breakfasts to defeat the most determined of hangovers are all on the menu at this West End diner.

They even have their own yellow New York taxi cab parked up out front, a rare sight on Glasgow’s streets.

Although under new management and with markedly different decor since the diner first opened its doors, the popularity of this Dumbarton Road eatery continues to boom.

Might have something to do with their phenomenal combination of burgers, enormous breakfasts and shakes to wash them down with.

Dime bar and banoffee pie snow blizzard anyone?

Or perhaps you’re in to knock your hangover on its head with a feast of pancakes, Eggs Benedict and coffee?

The Glasgow food bloggers have gone wild for this American diner, and their ‘Build Your Own Burger’ experience even drew the attention of STV favourite and burger connoisseur James Lees of James versus Burger.
