“Tea, cake and art”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

After a very early sailing from Kirkwall for a day out on Westray, we stopped here for a cup of tea and a pecan caramel shortbread bite, both of which were lovely.
The cafe/ art studio is light, airy and atmospheric.
There is an old ship's bridge house forming part of the building which is to be developed into a walk-in exhibit.
A very pleasant mid-morning stop

“Brilliant - make sure you visit!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Wheelin Steen is a gallery and coffee/cake cafe in Westray (a small island in the orkneys). Wheelin Steen is run by a family, and the pictures and photos are by the father and daughter. The art is beautiful, reasonable and they very obligingly agreed to send things to England at very affordable rates. We had delicious coffee and tea with yummy cakes. It was immaculately clean, with great facilities and friendly subtle service. They had a range of chairs and tables, and comfy sofas. Beautiful setting, beautiful building and well worth a visit!
