This cafe deserves a lot of praise for offering gluten free across the sandwich range. Much bigger inside than first impression as there is a dining gallery upstairs.

Yes its a bit small and crowded but well worth it. I had the rhubarb cheese cake and a coffee and my wife had the scone. For a small island stop it was very good. There is free Wi-Fi so that would explain the busy...More

Fantastic breakfast served until 11am, homemade muesli, porridge, and freshly scrambled Shetland eggs. Lunch in or out. 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. Last orders for food 4pm. 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.
