Fjarå Coffee

Behind any good Café Bar, is a great coffee. Our coffee is a delicate blend of Brazilian, El Salvador and Indian bean that gives a full bodied smooth coffee without bitterness and with a hint of caramel and dark chocolate notes. Ground on site, it ensures fresh coffee in every cup.

Customer Review

"Stopped for a quick coffee and cake with my daughter - fantastic setting right on the sea where we could see seals on the rocks right outside the cafe. Staff very welcoming and pleasant. A great addition to what Lerwick has on offer and they even have a webcam showing the seals."
