A welcoming Cafe in an ideal position on the Esplanade. I visited the Peerie Cafe on numerous times during my stay in Lerwick and had coffee and cream scones as well as lunch. It is an ideal place to meet friends, the staff is efficient and friendly, the food simple, fresh and tasty. It is very popular and often hard... More

Nice friendly cafe that prides itself on good coffee, or tea, and nice straight forward snacks, or something more substantial. Vey popular with the locals who pop in for a chat, or to read the morning papers.

I had a really enjoyable brunch here....a bacon sandwich and fab coffee. It was just perfect! Sat outside and enjoyed it even more :) I'll definitely go there again.

We had a soup and sandwich lunch. There is a choice of soup sizes and also half or whole sandwich. The half sandwich on its own is more than sufficient for lunchtime. Sandwiches are made up freshly. There is also a big choice of cakes which look very tempting. Seating downstairs is a little cramped, so head upstairs for the... More

After a tour of Lerwick and its surroundings, we stopped for tea and scones at the Peerie Ship Cafe. It was wonderful! Delicious tea and scones, served by a friendly staff, coupled by free WiFi that allowed us to touch base with home, made for a thoroughly delightful visit.

I had hi hopes of this cafe - as the people sound so friendly on Social Media. Unfortunately on the occasions I visited I was never greeted with so much as a Hello or a friendly smile - it seemed to take 3 staff to make a cup of coffee and then over 10 minutes each time and when I... More

Fantastic breakfast served until 11am, homemade muesli and freshly scrambled Shetland eggs. Delicious soups created every day in-house. Big doorstep sandwiches and panini made to order. Shetland smoked salmon specials. Tempting cakes, cheesecakes, scones and muffins baked daily. We use local produce wherever possible. Always striving to make the best coffee. Sit outside on a fine day enjoying James's delicious cheesecake watching Lerwick life in action. Local Art exhibitions. Free wifi.
