If you're looking for a decaff espresso, with soy milk + gluten free nibbles, then this is the place to come. It's very busy though - with regulars and knitting enthusiasts - as well as visitors. I liked the art on the walls too...

We stopped here for a break on a beautiful Saturday during the Folk Festival. It was quite busy but the staff were organized and we were happy with what we received.

Coffe was great and they have a good selection of bits and pieces to eat, all fresh and in spite of a very busy day, with cruise ship in the harbor the service was swift and friendly.

I highly recommend the turkey sandwich with mozzarella and basil jelly. Alas, all the cafes in Lerwick close at 5P.

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.
