I stopped in for a quick coffee and was very surprised by how extensive their menu was with being such a small place. I stared in disbelief at the size of the cheesecake but opted for a flat white coffee and a piece of tiramisu. It was absolutely gorgeous,

There is not a thing I don't love about a stroll on the High Street in Lerwick: the Shetland Times book store, the sweater shops -Jameison and Ninian, Harry's Department Store and Conochies, the Newsagent. But my favorite and usually final stop is at the Peerie shop and Cafe on the waterfront. It's just worth it for the friendly crowd... More

It is one of the best places in Lerwick for coffee too and was one of the first to make it properly. The soups are always really good (cullen skink a favourite) and the... More

I had a filter coffee with milk and a piece of shortbread. Good sized cup and good coffee. Service was courteous but could have appeared a bit more welcoming. The coffee however was brought up to the loft area; so it is helpful. The place is a pleasant environment. The lack of soft furnishings made it slightly noisy. However, I'd... More

This is a great tea room and has a good selection of home made food, I would recommend the soup and home bakes. There is also a good choice of sandwiches, and very central, and next to the bus stop and other shops.It is across from the Victoria peer so in a good location for the cruice linners that visit...
