I finally seem to have developed my explorer legs for Glasgow, having made it to Roast, the other day. Today, I ventured to the wilds of Hyndland for a visit to the Hyndland Cafe on Clarence Street.

Half of the old Co-op on the corner, the place is really smart with lovely booth seating and room enough for about twenty people in its compact cafe premises. I sat in the window seats to watch the world go by.

Breakfast

Breakfast

Their breakfasts seem to be the speciality with a broad selection ranging from eggs to porridge to toast to pancakes to full breakfasts. I opted for the latter, which comprised bacon, link and lorne sausage, a tattie scone, mushrooms, tomato, beans, black pudding, fried egg and toast.

The very friendly and chatty counter man brought tea immediately, then food promptly followed. It was rather crammed on to the plate, but that meant there was buried treasure to uncover which proved rather good fun.

The egg was really nicely cooked and the herby link sausage and black pudding were memorably tasty. The lorne was a little thickly cut for my tastes, but everything else was really pretty good, which made for enjoyable start-of-the-day fare.

So overall, I was really pleased with the Hyndland Cafe. It’s a friendly spot serving very good quality breakfast options. I’d be happy to visit again and would recommend you do so, as well.
