...but the staff seemed bored with their job and reluctant to smile. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool place to sit in and have a coffee (my favourite was mocha). Yes, it's tiny and gets packed at lunch time but it only shows customers...More

We always pop in for a delicious bowl of soup on our visits to Shetland. There are homemade cakes and scones as well as freshly prepared sandwiches. Gluten free options are available. The cafe is always busy when we call in.

Lovely little cafe, great place for a coffee and/or quick bite to eat. The wifi was fab too and plenty of tables to sit at.

Friendly staff and good food. Went twice and it has a nice atmosphere. Had the cappuccino cheesecake which was delicious. Also attached to a great shop of quality crafts and books.

I love this place, visit every time I am in Lerwick. It tends to get a bit crowded at lunchtimes, and you have to wait a bit to get served but this is because it is so popular and the food is so good. 'Peerie'...More

Small, intimate, warm and cosy place frequented by both locals and tourists. Great place to go after the Aberdeen ferry has docked early in the morning. Excellent coffee.

This cafe is in the central area near market cross. Entrance on the side at back of Peerie Shop (full of good local gifts.) Cullen Skink soup was delicious - and always a favorite Scottish dish. They have salads, sandwiches, 2 or 3 kinds of...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.
