Coffee being one of my vices, I am sometimes too quick to condemn or praise cafes. But in this instance the coffee (a flat white) was very good. Just the right temperature and strength. Great selection of food too. Staff are friendly and helpful. Worth...More

Fantastic breakfast served until 11am, homemade muesli and freshly scrambled Shetland eggs. Delicious soups created every day in-house. Big doorstep sandwiches and panini made to order. Shetland smoked salmon specials. Tempting cakes, cheesecakes, scones and muffins baked daily. We use local produce wherever possible. Always striving to make the best coffee. Sit outside on a fine day enjoying James's delicious cheesecake watching Lerwick life in action. Local Art exhibitions. Free wifi.
