A cut above your usual seaside cafe – on sunny days you can sit at the wooden tables on the prom and share a bottle of chilled white wine, or choose from a menu that includes pancakes with maple syrup, home-made burgers and chocolate brownie with Orkney ice cream.

An evening bistro menu (mains £16 to £27) offers steak and seafood dishes; best to book for this. The cafe is on the esplanade, 800m northeast of the city centre.
