This has recently become my regular place to go for a afternoon tea. Staff are really polite and helpful. Great choice of freshly make cakes. Great place to go for half an hour peace to read a book and have a cuppa

Lovely coffee shop with very polite and helpful staff. We came to Lerwick on a cruise and after a walk around, this cafe was great to have a little tea break in. Amazing cakes!

This is a great place to enjoy a midday snack or a coffee and cake. Service is delivered with a smile and everything is freshly prepared.

Chanced on this coffee shop as we'd just arrived in Lerwick. Lovely atmosphere, really friendly staff who answered our enquiries about Shetland. The coffee was excellent, just what we needed on a breezy morning.

Weak coffee with little choice of food and never seems to be open. There are many better places in Lerwick to get a coffee than this.More

I am very surprised to hear you found our coffee weak as we use a double shot as standard in all of our coffee. We make all of our food fresh and our selection of cakes are handmade. The choice may be less than in...More

Just left of Clan looking at the front of the building. Competitor? No. Best coffee at the Olive Tree. Name and shame the bad ones Alan. It makes them raise their standards.
