Whilst strolling around Lerwick came across this delightful little tea room. A pleasant interlude with a nice cup of tea and a scone. The only negative is that there are no toilet facilities....but one may use the toilets in the shop next door

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

Quirky place near the harbour, Lots of savoury and sweet options, and coffee and tea choices. Good carrot cake. Quick service. Good food at reasonable prices. Gift shop next door if you need any last minute things to take home,

Very popular and often extremely busy. Good coffee though sometimes a few minutes before it arrives. A few tables outside for when the weather is kind.

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.
