The Speldiburn Café offers freshly made lunchtime specials and tasty soups, toasties and paninis along with homemade scones, bannocks and cakes, soft drinks, teas and lovely Bean Shop coffee.
A 20-minute walk from the Bressay ferry and on route to Noss or the local play park, the bright and friendly café is a great stop when visiting Bressay. The Speldiburn GAN Shop is on site along with a community lending library and there’s a multi court outside for youngsters wanting a kick about.
The Café’s exhibition space showcases work by local and visiting artists and currently exhibits photos of Bressay crofts and crofters past and present.
Local crafts on sale.
The Speldiburn Café was set up in 2016 by Bressay Development Ltd, a not-for-profit community group managed by volunteers who refurbished the former school canteen with funding help from Shetland Islands Council and Awards For All.
Bressay Development Ltd has now run the café for a full year with the help of a dedicated team of paid staff and volunteers.
Named after a no-longer-visible burn which runs by the school, the Speldiburn was, in its time, well known to locals. A copy of the fiddle tune ‘the Speldiburn reel’, composed by the late Harry Tulloch, a Bressay fiddle player, is proudly displayed in the café.
Special food requirements can be catered for but please contact us in advance to confirm availability. Large parties or individuals wishing to pre book a lunch are also welcome to get in touch.
