A good recommendation for any eatery is that the locals use it and that is indeed the case here. Always a good cup of coffee and great cakes and nearly always someone you know to have a chat with.

Great tasty bowls of soups to be had. Sandwiches with a good variety of fillings and delicious homemade cakes,scones & also gluten free cakes as well. A favourite of ours when we are in the town. Staff really friendly and helpful. Not always easy to get in as it is usually busy but we're prepared to wait if necessary.

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

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.
