Always good to hop in

When in town and looking for either coffee/tea and cake or a soup or salad, that is the address. Always very good, bread is perfect, and the service of the young people is friendly

This is a nice shop selling interesting and quality gifts. The cafe had a cosmopolitan feel to it and the quality of the food is good. The staff noticeably give locals better service than visitors. That observation was made on three different visits to the Cafe.

In at 12 and upstairs was full. Baggett was good with salad. Very filling so I struggled on my sweet. Both were good. It's good that so many cafes in Lerwick have wifi too. It's the way forward.

My partner remembered the Peerie Shop Cafe from the last time we came to visit and insisted we had tea and cake one afternoon. Great little cafe in a top location. The lemon cheesecake was fantastic though it took a little while to make it over to us. No complaints though as it's a great place to visit for a... More

This plae is always packed as it's right across from the harbour. Lots of locals and tourists but beware it doesn'e accept Debit Cards, so have cash handy. The seating is cramped so wouldn't attempt with a whelchair or even a buggy! Wifi is available and the homebaking is fine!

The best Bakewell tart I have ever had. And fantastic coffee too! Great menu choice to suit all tastes. We were upstairs as it was full downstairs. Lovely atmosphere. And free wifi too. Highly recommended!

A good cafe which offers hot and cold meals and a number of dessert options too. It is very popular with the locals (which is always a good sign)

Contemporary decor nice. Good sized portions home made soup and sandwiches cost 7.50 so pricey but worth it free wifi here 😍
