Exceptional location overlooking the Bay. Imaginative menu, and dishes are fresh, attractively presented, and tasty. Team are cheerful and responsive, although service was a tad slow, perhaps due to staff absence. Comfortable chairs and tables, clean toilets and ample parking. We’ll be back!

A busy cafe bar but we managed to squeeze in for lunch during a visit to Shetland last week. Good choices of freshly prepared food, friendly service, and excellent coffee. The lovely view is a bonus.

Welcome to Fjara Cafe Bar, Shetland, ZE1. Fjara is locally owned and its main aim is to make customers feel at home. It has something for all parts of the day - from coffee in the morning and sandwiches at lunch right through to cocktails, burgers and more at night. Set on the small peninsula of land jutting out into Brewick bay, Fjara has amazing views for you to enjoy in all weathers and at all times of the day. It is a great wild life spot with plenty of opportunity to spot seals and otters in the surrounding. With a simple but effective menu, which changes seasonally, Fjara aims to bring different taste and cuisines to Shetland, getting the most from seasonal fruit and vegetables. All our baked goods are freshly made every morning on site, from our fantastic cheese and bacon bloomer to our sweet blueberry pancakes. Open from 10am to 10pm Sunday, 8am Monday to Thursday and 8am to midnight Friday and Saturday, Fjara provides a welcome escape from a hectic day at work, or a place to take the family and relax. Families, food lovers and drink aficionados are all very welcome in Lerwick's exclusive new cosy spot.
