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 😍

I went here a couple of times during my stay in Lerwick. Lovely atmosphere and a well-priced and extensive range of food and drinks. As the name suggests it's very small, which means it can sometimes be a difficult to get a table but it's worth hanging around to nab a spot.

This is a lovely little cafe tucked away behind Peerie Shop. It is often hard to get a seat and in the summer there are seats outside. The food is home cooked and the soups are very tastie. The cakes are very good and moreish. We will come back again..
