We are delighted that the Stevenson Centre Tearoom was a finalist in the ‘Hidden Gem’ category of The Scotsman Food and Drink Awards 2018.

Stevenson Centre Tearoom

Due to popular demand, a cafe service has been made available at Sumburgh Head.

Located in the Stevenson Centre, with stunning views out to sea, the cafe will operate on a pop-up basis during the day, allowing the space to still be used for educational purposes and event hire.

Speciality teas and cafetiéres of ground coffee will be served along with a choice of biscuits and freshly made cakes. 

Opening Times:

The Cafe is currently closed for refurbishment. We will update the website shortly.
