Breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks are all handled remarkably well at this cool, consistent all-day diner
Originally opened as Delizique before becoming a café-bar in 2008 (the deli can now be found two doors up Hyndland Street), Cafezique is one of the few eateries in Glasgow that does breakfast, lunch, dinner, casual drinks and cake to a consistently high standard.
The exterior has been stripped back to reveal the signage of the old Hargan’s Dairy shop that once upon a time inhabited the premises, above huge floor-to-ceiling windows, and a nice broad pavement on one side for tables and chairs in the warm months. Inside it’s a small but stylish, bright and contemporary feeling place, with a snug mezzanine, stripped stone walls and an open kitchen (warning: you’re liable to leave smelling a bit cooked if you’re here for a while).
Cafezique’s full breakfasts – with phonebook-thick toast slices, Aberfoyle Butcher sausages and Puddledub bacon – are among the best in Glasgow, and they do a mean eggs benedict too. Lunchtime standouts include a great Cullen skink with more chunky bread, and daily-changing fresh quiches and salads.
For dinner, starters include pan-fried mackerel and curried lentil soup, with a decent house burger and crab linguine among the better main courses. For drinkers, there’s a strong, considered wine list and beers from Samuel Smith and Bitter & Twisted.
