Really good, home cooked, wholesome quiches, soups, salads and delicious cakes. Well worth shopping by for lunch

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.

Great food and wonderful staff.Maybe a bit cramped when busy. But not really their fault if the place is so popular.

Staff are always welcoming an smiley. Food is always great too. Not had a bad feed here yet- and don't wish to either. Although, a little more mayonnaise in the tuna would make it better for that. All in all, a great place to eat.

Good salads and good for vegetarians. Our first meal in Shetland and we were enthusiastic. I recommend the paninis.

VERY overpriced and the food isn't even that good. Haven't been back since and others I know certainly agree. Shame really, has the potential to be a nice place with all the different foods.
