We make and produce locally our own Orkney Knitwear Collections and design unique Orkney gifts, along with selling Scottish crafts, jewellery and a fantastic collection of eco friendly clothing. There is something for everyone and a visit to our shop and cafe should not be missed when you visit Orkney.

Situated at the back of the shop is our Real Food Cafe where great local Orkney produce is cooked in the open kitchen - sit and watch while you enjoy an Orkney coffee, tea or even a glass of good wine or local ale. Choose from local food specialities such as Westray crab, smoked salmon, fish & cheeses and our homemade deli salad choices. We also bake our own bere meal bannock served with soup of the day and make fresh scones every day. You can also enjoy hot Orkney meat dishes from our specials board or just simply come in and enjoy one of our home bakes. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming and the idea is that you can feel as if you are sitting in your very own kitchen/dining room at home - we even have Orkney chairs that you can sit on!

We are a licensed premises and children are welcome in the cafe at any time of the day.

We also welcome dogs so you can take your favorite pooch with you - as long as they are well behaved of course!
