Great coffee and array of freshly made baked - the Bakewell tart on one of the days we visited was fab! The cheesecake was just about resisted! Recycling and sustainability important to the team in the cafe too.

A friend and I had a quick coffee whilst looking around Lerwick. The cafe was relatively busy so it took 5 minutes for our coffee to arrive but when it did it was a good coffee - smooth and tasty!

Fantastic breakfast served until 11am, homemade muesli, porridge, 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. Last orders for food 4pm. 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.
