Situated opposite St Magnus Cathedral in the centre of Kirkwall and known as an Aladdins Cave ! No visit to Orkney is complete without visiting this interesting shop and Cafe.

Judith Glue and The Real Food Cafe is full of interesting Orkney made and designed gifts, jewellery, textiles and clothing, hampers, local food and drink produce as well as Judiths own Orkney Knitwear Collection made in the Islands by Judiths own team of knitters and finishers. Items are also sourced from many small producers based from all over Scotland with many being designed and made exclusively for Judith. So you can always be sure of finding something different to buy as a present or take home as a nice reminder of Orkney.

The Real Food Cafe is situated at the back of the shop where you can sit in one of the Orkney chairs and enjoy a local ale, Gin or a good glass of wine while you choose from local specialities of crab, salmon, fish, cheeses, bere bannock and Orkney meat dishes all cooked in the open kitchen. Children are welcome in the Cafe at any time of the day.
