Had drinks only. The rose was very sweet but we enjoyed our drinks! Limited menu for dining but good for snacks. Very friendly and comfortable seating

The location by the harbour is good and the food and hot drinks are good. Also it’s one of the places open in Lerwick on a Sunday!

This was one of the few places open the day after Up Helly Aa and we enjoyed an enjoyable lunch (freshly made sandwiches) and some coffee drinks. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful!
