Fodor's Review

Who would believe you could get such good cappuccino at 60 degrees north? Round the back of the popular Lerwick knitwear shop is a modish, consistently good café that sells filled sponge cakes, lip-smackingly good soups, and, yes, the best coffee on the islands. It's always busy and Shetlanders do like to talk, so be prepared to hang around for a table during lunchtime. Alas, the café closes at 6.
