My wife and I required some sustenance and stumbled upon this little place. We had delicious thick piping hot cauliflower soup couple of panini and green tea. Banoffee tart and fruit scone. Well worth a visit. Maybe a little expensive but good quality.

Friendly little cafe in the centre of Lerwick. Great place to go for morning coffee or a light lunch. The cafe is rather small so a bit difficult to find a seat when busy.

Quirky little coffee shop, we sat upstairs. My husband had Cullen skink which he said was lovely, with lots of fish in it. My daughter had a panini which she enjoyed. I was not quite so lucky as I had lentil soup which should not have been served as it was not ready. The carrots were crunchy and the whole... More

This is one of the best little cafes/coffee shops in Lerwick. The Cullen Skink (smoked haddock and potato soup) was gorgeous, served with big chunks of bread. Their coffee is gorgeous, even the filter coffee and great value. It's one of those places that you don't feel bad lazing over a coffee or several with a book as I did,... More

Stopped in here for lunch when working in the area. Coffee was excellent, but the highlight for me was the home made chicken soup - possible the best I've ever tasted!

A good recommendation for any eatery is that the locals use it and that is indeed the case here. Always a good cup of coffee and great cakes and nearly always someone you know to have a chat with. What more could you ask for? Busy at lunchtimes though, so be prepared to wait for a seat- but don't be... 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.
