A convenience store with attached hardware shop, the food focus here is their bakery, which makes bread, rolls, scones, traditional ‘Balta' (ship's) biscuits, and their Oceanic Oatcake range, which lists Shetland sea water as one of just three ingredients. Established in 1885 and particularly useful for walkers, there’s a self-service cafe complete with microwave, newspapers, kettle and mugs. Sit in with a filled roll or pie, or on Friday nights they serve pizzas loaded with toppings.
