Stewart, 34 and Lynva Forrest, 33, have just opened a new cafe in Dunfermline called Cafe Wynd. After years spent studying a degree in film, and roles in location management, for productions such as Outlander, Stewart is returning to a former life in the cafe and restaurant business. Previous stints in the catering business included cooking for the boutique hotel restaurant, No 11 Brunswick Street, Edinburgh, and for Harvey Nichols brasserie. Dunfermline locals will spot that name is uncannily similar to the previous Wynd Cafe. But the menu and the design are quite different. Lynva is responsible for the interior – as Stewart explains: ‘I’m always taking more credit than I deserve but the design is definitely down to my wife’. The couple, who moved to Dunfermline from Edinburgh nearly three years ago, hope to offer a simple dinner menu on certain evenings. Hosting private functions is another longer term plan. In the meantime, the cafe menu includes a full breakfast, bagels, porridge and Mexican brekkie, Huevos Rancheros, served until 11.30am. Waffles are served all day, and, lunch includes soup, sandwiches, salads, fishcakes and a dish of the day.
Cafe Wynd, 10 Cross Wynd, Dunfermline KY12 7AP. Tel: 01383 741 541 (Situated in Cross Wynd, up the hill from Giacomos)
