We just loved this spot. It is cosy and warm and the food is absolutely delicious. We had wonderful sandwiches followed by homebakes. We also took some homebakes shortbread to go. Don’t miss this spot!

They open early and do terrrifc breakfasts which they are willing to cook to your own peculiar foibles without complaining - they made me scrambed eggs without the promised cream because I prefer to avoid the cream. It was delicious, just the way I like...More

Stopped here for a break while walking around Lerwick. Small cafe with some outside seating and an upstairs area. Local art on the walls is for sale - some really good prints. Coffee was exceptionally good, definitely worth a visit.

This Café has the best tasty homemade food offerings and lattes in Lerwick, bar none! Very busy morning patrons wait in line to place food orders, but the wait is well worth it. Perfect made to order lattes, home baked scones, fresh made soups, sandwiches...More

Fantastic breakfast served until 11am, homemade muesli, porridge, and freshly scrambled Shetland eggs. Lunch in or out. 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. Last orders for food 4pm. 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.
