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!

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.

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.
