Absolutely fantastic café on the harbour front. The staff are great, the food superlative and made there. I would definitely try their home made chees scones. They also hand out a pouch from the local authority for your used chewing gum and cigarette buts. The café and the outside area are spotless

Staff are friendly and helpful, even at busy times they never appear flustered and are welcoming and efficient. Food is of a high standard from scones to soup, paninis to pastries. Thoroughly recommend!

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.
