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 called in here after arriving on the Ferry. It reminded us of a little cafe we have in our home town. The similarities were only in looks but not in quality of food or service. The breakfast choices were limited and don’t expect a...More

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.

Friendly staff and good food. Went twice and it has a nice atmosphere. Had the cappuccino cheesecake which was delicious. Also attached to a great shop of quality crafts and books.

I love this place, visit every time I am in Lerwick. It tends to get a bit crowded at lunchtimes, and you have to wait a bit to get served but this is because it is so popular and the food is so good. 'Peerie'...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.
