Can't make up my mind weather I like here or not. I've visited quite a few times and I've had mixed reviews of here. Considering the place is run by the same people who owns the muckle cafe in clickimin the food is miles apart. The chicken dipping licking dish here is awful compared to the clickimin place. BUT the... More

Popular with the locals, which is a good sign. We had a huge beef stew with absolutely no fat or gristle, and a very tasty cauliflower cheese, which was also enormous. We didn't have chips (which I think made us look a bit odd as chips appeared to be served with everything). Coffee was average, but the staff were friendly... More

Just average cafe grub. Nothing more nothing less. Staff is friendly, and benefits from 20p refill on coffee. :) They serve a good verity of lunch grub, unfortunately it closes a bit early

The Skipidock is nothing special, but there's nothing wrong with it. Their breakfasts are particularly good, and definitely their speciality, but everything else is okay too. It's a bit of a greasy spoon - great for hangovers! The staff are friendly enough but are very distracted. The old style of queuing up for your food seems a bit out-dated, but... More

Ordered a breakfast for me and my wife. It was amazing value for money. Could hardly finish it. Recommended for anyone who likes a fry up. Lunchtime menu pretty good as well

had breakfast having checked out of our self catering accomodation on the way home, it was OK, ingrediants seemed cheap, bacon salty, wouldnt go back, but plenty of local workmen fell different as the place was full.

Only go here if you really have to, everything is overpriced and not even very good. Had haddock and chips which is £6.30 with veg, declined the veg and asked for some lettuce and was charged £6.90! 60p extra for a handful of lettuce and I didn't take the veg! Paying for condiments in a cafe is ridiculous, fair enough... More

Bacon rolls and coffee at the Skipidock is one of the essential Shetland experiences! Not only will you get a roll absolutely stuffed full of bacon, the whole thing will come in much cheaper than anywhere else nearby. Yes, the decor might be a little dated, but this friendly cafe never fails to provide tasty, filling and good value food,... More

Great place to go for lunch or a large dinner, plenty big portions, the coleslaw is utterly amazing! good variety of food for all ages, I have been in when it is very busy and they never run out of any of the food on the board. Very quick with orders and very organised and friendly staff.

I have been here on numerous occasions when visiting the area and one of my "must" Shetland experiences is to have one of their panini's with their delicious sweet & sour sauce during my stay. Once I have had it, I always want to come back for more. The service is fab; very quick and efficient, i've never had any... More
