You may have to wait for a seat in this popular cafe located right behind the Peerie Shop, by the harbour in Lerwick. It prepares doorstep sandwiches, panini, fresh soups, cakes and other baked goods all made on-site, with ingredients sourced from across the isles. The variety of choice is impressive across the whole menu. Soups vary from traditional reestit mutton and tatties to coconut, chilli and butternut squash while muffins appear in different flavours each day, including chocolate chip, lemon curd and orange marmalade. Fruit pavlova, bakewell tart and a variety of cheesecakes are among their other bakes, and gluten-free alternatives such as lemon polenta cake are also available. Local artists are promoted by exhibing their artworks in the dining area upstairs, which are available to buy from the shop.
