Fresh varied food

Love the salads, quiches, soups. The soups and quiches are always varied. The ones we've had, have been delicious. There's also a great gluten free range of home bakes. Staff are friendly and never rush you out when you've finished eating.

Good food, friendly staff and great service. About 20% over priced in my opinion but the lack of lunch time alternatives in Lerwick make it worth a visit.

We often pop here for a coffee or lunch and it is much better now the seating area has been extended. The rolls, salads, cake and coffee are very good and tasty. It is convenient when shopping at the Toll Clock.

Popular eatery. Good choice of food on the lunch menu and reasonably priced. Seating is limited, although the restaurant has recently extended. Take away option is available.

Nice little place out of the way. Coffee was very good, and the mixed fruit buns just blew me away! Delicious. Very good value and pleasant surroundings. We'll definitely be back!

Our friend took us here and it does not look anything special but the choice of food, the service and the value is superb. The staff worked really well together and were most friendly. You must find this place.
