A clothing, gift and food emporium sitting across from the beautiful St Magnus Cathedral in the heart of Kirkwall, Judith Glue is a thriving business that does a good job at offering something for everyone. On the food front they sell a huge selection of Orkney food hampers, plus cheese, smoked salmon and Orkney whiskies both from this large shop and online (there’s also a second shop in Inverness). The Real Food Cafe opened at the back of the shop in 2011, and aims to use as much Orcadian produce as possible. They achieve this impressively on a menu packed with beremeal bannocks, Orkney cheese, salmon and meat, hot mince rolls, Westray crab, Donaldsons pork pies, local whisky and beer and, of course, delicious Orkney ice-cream. The shop and cafe open late in the summer months for evening meals, and they also put on occasional live music events.
