Part music shop and part cafe, Kirkwall’s best coffee-stop sits alongside the cathedral, and bravely puts tables outside at the slightest threat of sunshine. It’s a relaxed spot, good for a morning-after debriefing, a quiet Orkney ale, or lunchtime panini and musically named sandwiches (plus the cheese-and-mushroom Skara Brie). It’s a local folk-musicians' centre, with regular evening sessions.
