Arrived on the overnight ferry from Orkney and this one of the two cafes open very early in the morning (08:00). Excellent Mathew Algie coffee made by a skilled barista, tasty home made muesli and well made scrambled eggs. Based on this experience highly recommended.

Great location for breakfast. Nice bacon roll and coffee. Cosy seating and good atmosphere. Only toilets upstairs so not great for those with disabilities.

Wonderful coffee shop with great soups and sandwiches. The baked goods are fantastic. Our favorite was the Bakewell tart! Friendly and efficient staff. This place clearly has a dedicated following as it was always busy.

Great coffee and array of freshly made baked - the Bakewell tart on one of the days we visited was fab! The cheesecake was just about resisted! Recycling and sustainability important to the team in the cafe too.

Fantastic breakfast served until 11am, homemade muesli, porridge, and freshly scrambled Shetland eggs. Lunch in or out. 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. Last orders for food 4pm. 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.
