Whether breakfast, lunch, coffee or cake, Cafezique is the go-to destination in Hyndland for artisan dishes, quality produce and cracking baked goods. A steady stream of customers come and go from breakfast time, which is served until 5pm for those who enjoy a long lie in, as varieties of French toast, eggs every way possible and homemade granola turn into lunch salads, sandwiches, burgers and quiche along with nibbles and bistro favourites such as macaroni cheese and mussels – plump, from Shetland and fresh as you could wish, a delicate garlic and cream sauce is light enough to let one fully appreciate the sea freshness of the shellfish.
