Surprising capacity

Seats on the ground floor, seats upstairs, and seats outside, all making imaginative use of the small area available (as does the equally recommended Peerie shop next door). For a small place there's a decent healthy menu of snack food and cakes, and a good cup of coffee. The only minor complaint... read more

The Peerie Shop Cafe is ideally situated on The Esplanade moments away from Commercial Street, and is very well established in Lerwick. Peerie is the Shetland word for 'little' / 'small', hence how it has derived its name. Everything is freshly prepared and home-made with one of the employees having featured on The Great British Bake Off (James Morton). The... More

When you need that morning coffee, snack lunch or afternoon tea, or simply need a refreshment and shelter from the gales, this is an ideal retreat in central Lerwick.

A nice atmosphere in the cafe. We went and sat upstairs as there was no room downstairs. Placed our order of 5 soft drinks (3 irn brus and 2 coke) along with 2 muffins. Was a long wait for such an easy order in my opinion.

A decent cup of coffee! Cakes for mid afternoon were good. Always busy, which is a good sign. Location is ideal in the centre of Lerwick making it handy if visiting the shops in town.

I had 20 minutes to kill today and thought a coffee was a good idea. Went into Peerie Shop Café and had to queue for 5 minutes - not a problem. I ordered a latte and a fruit scone. The girl asked if I wanted cream and I said no - just butter and jam. I then took a seat... More

Nice (functional) interior and a nice atmosphere. Staff very friendly and service quick. Nice tea and scrummy bakewell tart (I liked it so much I had the same thing each time I went).

Amazing soup with a warm welcome, only wish that I could have stayed longer and had another bowl. Price was very reasonable and being honest for the quality of food I would have paid more. Only problem was the ladies room you may need sunglasses to dim the different combinations of colours.

Tucked away in one of the side alleys in Lerwick this is easily missed. We were looking for food and luckily found this. The homemade soup was delicious and the panino full of yummy cheese and onion. The hot chocolate was very good. Service was friendly and pricing not too bad. Must be a good place as it was full... More
