Nice place, usually very busy. The cakes are always fresh and a good selection to choose from. The food is very nice, they now have gluten free bread which means i can go with my cousin who is gluten free. There is a little too much bread for my liking, I'd like to see some salads on the menu or... More

This cafe does so e nice cakes. Their coffee was not quite to my taste but they roast their own beans so something customised is a nice change.

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.

Best coffee in town . Great homemade soups and local smoked salmon. Really appreciative of a small tip. Quite refreshing.

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.
