This was our first meal in Lerwick after getting off the plane. We wanted a healthy, light meal and we got that with two excellent soups (mine was broccoli and Stilton, though not super cheesy or heavy) and a great made to order turkey sandwich....More

If you're looking for a decaff espresso, with soy milk + gluten free nibbles, then this is the place to come. It's very busy though - with regulars and knitting enthusiasts - as well as visitors. I liked the art on the walls too...

We stopped here for a break on a beautiful Saturday during the Folk Festival. It was quite busy but the staff were organized and we were happy with what we received.

Coffe was great and they have a good selection of bits and pieces to eat, all fresh and in spite of a very busy day, with cruise ship in the harbor the service was swift and friendly.

I highly recommend the turkey sandwich with mozzarella and basil jelly. Alas, all the cafes in Lerwick close at 5P.

It's not a big shop but you can sit down and enjoy your drink. That's ashame it was only open till 5pm and closed on Sundays. You can either sit in or take away.

Perfect place for lunch. All the soups they make are superb. A hearty bowl with a scone and you're all set.

A small, but brilliant coffee shop. Good coffee and cakes. We went twice in three days, loved it. Free wi fi

Friendly, professional staff and outstanding lunches. Salt beef and tomato panini is to die for! Homemade cakes and scones absolutely delicious! Eat here often and never disappointed.

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.
