Stopped here one morning for a coffee. She was not open, but let us in. She had no milk so had to go and buy some. But a lovely warm, welcoming place, surrounded by items to buy.
The coffee was great, the ambience a delight and we fell in love with the place.

This is newly opened, and is tiny (max three tables). Jenny offers a real community experience close to the centre of town, with chess practice/lessons on Saturdays for youngsters 8-13 years old, and various modern language exchange groups meeting there. There's also a changing display of local art and crafts, and a Palestinian table displaying olive oil, soap, almonds, pottery etc . Goods can be ordered and collected from there.
Daily menus include homemade soups, a good range of sandwiches and home bakes. It's a very friendly place. You are sure to be made very welcome so visitors to the area can get travel/tourist advice and meet a few locals.

When I went into Jenny's, I found it was very friendly and a warm atmosphere. I was immediately greeted by staff and they were extremely welcoming and inviting, which soothed me because I only eat Gluten Free food? This can make things very awkward when I go out usually but I found this wasn't the case here as they specialise in Vegan, Gluten Free and Vegetarian options. I had a very nice snack, I also noticed they had a very good selection of meals and snacks as well. The prices were fair and I loved the atmosphere, especially with everything presented it looked extremely well done and unique. Would definitely recommend stopping by!

If you're after a nice friendly atmosphere and delicious vegan food, then look no further than Jenny's! Located just off the high street their friendly staff and tasty vegan and non-vegan foods is just what you need after trekking the windy Orkney plains!

Would highly recommend the vegan chocolate cake!
