If you’re looking for something a little classier than an ice cream cone or bag of chips on the Esplanade, then head to the Sand Dollar Café
With a light and airy New England style interior and local artists work adding splashes of colour to the walls, this is the perfect spot to refuel after a bracing seafront stroll. In the summer you can sit outside at the wooden tables with good company and a chilled bottle of wine.
Posh fish and chips
They serve everything from a bacon roll to chocolate brownies and Orkney ice cream – and there’s an upmarket evening bistro menu too with posh fish & chips and lobster thermidor.
The café hosts regular jazz nights, Tapas nights and Sunday Carveries.
