me and my friend visited today in hope of getting a hot spiced berry drink as we seen it on the menu a couple of days before when we visited but to our disappointment we were told that "they didn't have it" even though it said that it was on 2 different menus. It was a cold, yucky day and... More

Great for a meet, good coffee, soup, nibbles. It's not a greasy spoon (nothing wrong with them), more continental than that with good, tasty, reasonably priced homemade fare. Well recommended.

Nice place for a cuppa and a bite. Down stairs is a little tight for room but there is an upstairs seating area. Beware, this place is popular at lunchtime. Probably a good sign though. Oh and next door is a handmade chocolate shop. Be tempted.

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

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.
