I had lunch and tea at Mareel Cafe. The food was very good. The service is a little uneven. Both times I was there, I saw seals in the water outside.

Too slow when your in a rush. Nice furniture, low lighting that changes colour that clunks/flickers. I'd not recommend for epileptics I'd be concerned it would take on an episode. Staff need to ware an apron over their outside clothes and boys showing your underpants is not a good look in a cafe. Counter area needs sorting too. Went in for tea took that long I missed the beginning of my film

Once again the staff were friendly and very helpful.
The situation, right n the loch side was tremendous and again in the right weather you get great views across the water to the island of Bressay.

The programming. The architecture. The fact that I saw young mums, with their babes in arms, a group of pensioners, a group of blokes, and hipsters from 'down south' all in one day eating at the cafe. This is a triumph as a community resource. The sheer breadth of the films on during the screenplay week. The number of authors. The goodwill, professionalism and tenacity of the staff.
