Lovely fresh sandwiches and lovely lattes. Great staff and lovely place :) For those with a sweet tooth there is a tremendous good choice of cakes all homemade. Well worth a visit.

Last time I was in the Peerie Shop Cafe was four years ago and if anything, it has only got better. The smoked salmon special is fantastic – so good I had it twice this week. The soups are always excellent home made fare and the sandwiches very well-filled. They even have pots for three – great tea, too. And I... More

This place is very expensive for what you get. Very cramped when placing an order. They do not take debit or credit cards so I needed to ask other people in my party for money to pay for the bill. The staff that served me looked like a hippy, and the pearcings that the girl had did not look nice... More

The Peerie Cafe is our favourite lunchtime experience - super soup, . Go on a Friday if you want the best Cullen Skink (Smoked fish soup) in the World. They also do great sandwiches and cakes and a wide range of coffee and teas. You can always tell if a place is good by the number of local residents who... More

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.
