Excellent in every way. Great staff, cheery, helpful & knowledgable on both their food and the beers (I’d recommend a flight of beers). The food is fabulous, well seasoned, good value and portion sized good. The menus is not big standard like most other places, the choice of puddings is amazing, I’d recommend the pear.
Definitely worth a visit.

We had a delightful lunch including some of the best Cullen skink we’ve had in Scotland! Coffee and cake following was perfect. Highly recommended for lunch and tea!

We enjoyed a delicious lunch in Kirkwall at Cafelolz. Not only was the service wonderful, but the food was incredible (loved their use of local ingredients and products), and they had a lovely selection of kid toys/books to keep our kids entertained. This was a highlight of our visit to Kirkwall!

We arrived around 10am to find the place packed. We had to wait ages to get a seat and its quite clear the place just isn't big enough to meet demand. Service was slow as the staff were stressed with so many people crammed into a tiny space.

A real disappointment as we'd heard so much about it. Best avoided. Better to go elsewhere where you can at least breathe.

All great things come to those that wait and usually come in small packages !! Lots of other places for you to choose in Kirkwall if you don’t like small !! But what you see is what you get and lots of people DO !!

Had the most amazing Cullen Skink for lunch, really hearty and full of flavour. Son had the “most filling egg mayo sandwich ever”.
Then tempted to cake after the ebullient owner suggested a “wee swadge” first, which was a new one for this non-Scot...... Needless to say we followed instructions and didn’t regret either!
