From a brilliant brunch to a three-course dinner, Cafezique brings excellent quality ingredients together with great cooking.
Sister venue Gather By Zique as well as the Partick Duck Club (run by a team who ran this place for many years) have tended to take the plaudits of late on this road, but Cafezique still ticks over as a daytime café – in that relaxed and airy West End fashion – before drifting into upmarket neighbourhood bistro territory in the evening. For lunch, expect simple pleasures such as chicken and chorizo penne finished with crème fraîche, or gourmet sandwiches made using their own baked bread. The evening menu jumps about a bit, offering kimchi salad (vibrant, peppery, though not best matched with the European salad leaves beneath) and soy-glazed chicken wings, before substantial offerings such as a yoghurt-marinated lamb shank that is moist and slips off the bone, even if it may lack a tad of seasoning. Venison is nicely cooked though, pleasingly purple and soft in the middle. Cafezique’s best hours are perhaps its daylight ones, where this sunny space really has a buzz about itself.

If a deli is trying to tempt you to spend a bit more than you might at a supermarket on the basis that their food is better selected, in better condition and better quality, then you’d fully expect a partner café alongside to be operating under similar…
