Friendly staff and good food. Went twice and it has a nice atmosphere. Had the cappuccino cheesecake which was delicious. Also attached to a great shop of quality crafts and books.

I love this place, visit every time I am in Lerwick. It tends to get a bit crowded at lunchtimes, and you have to wait a bit to get served but this is because it is so popular and the food is so good. 'Peerie'...More

Small, intimate, warm and cosy place frequented by both locals and tourists. Great place to go after the Aberdeen ferry has docked early in the morning. Excellent coffee.

Great small café right by the harbour in the centre of Lerwick. Probably the best coffee we had in Shetland. An excellent selection of cakes with the most superb cheesecake we've ever eaten. We didn't have more than coffee and cake so can't comment on...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.
