Breakfast after ferry
Save

Hi,

Does anyone have a recommendation for somewhere for breakfast after we arrive in Lerwick on the Aberdeen-Lerwick ferry? Or would you recommend staying on the ferry for breakfast? We are arriving at 7:30am.

Thanks,

David.

Hi, your options are a bit limited. You could come off the boat and walk/drive to the Co-op supermarket cafe, which is OK but a bit basic. Further into town, there is the Harbour Cafe - an iconic destination for some - but again, fairly basic! If you don't know Lerwick, I would suggest staying on the boat for breakfast. Its not particularly cheap - and don't leave it too late - but at least you don't have to get off the boat early. I'm assuming you won't have a car. If you do, you'll have to get up to take the car off, but yoiu can return to the boat for breakfast if you retain your boarding pass. They tell you all about that, or just ask at Reception on the boat.

Experienced visitors might have other breakfast suggestions, but we are local and are usually just keen to get off the boat and home!

Thanks, sounds like the boat may be our best option.

Again, I agree with shellseeker.

The early morning breakfast options are definitely very limited.

Right opposite the ferry terminal, you will find the Shetland hotel and it may be possible to buy a breakfast there but you would need to contact the hotel in advance to see if this is possible.

One other possibility is, making your way towards the town, the Toll Clock shopping centre (actually a very tiny one) opens at 9-00am and you will find the Skipidock cafe in there and will get a decent breakfast there at a good price.

Whatever you do make sure you have the Shetland black pudding.
