The Pickaquoy Center has taken over the Management of the Cafe upstairs in the Pickie Center. Previously it was run under franchise by the Standing Stones Hotel.
As a regular user of the swimming pool and subsequently the cafe, I had more than a reporters normal interest in this change over. Some of the staff have stayed on I recognized several faces.
The counters have been totally revamped, Hot meals are now served directly from the counter like on the Hamnavoe.
As a father and grandfather I was pleased to see that the children’s menu includes a puzzle book and crayons to keep the “peedie folk” amused. Curiosity getting the better of me I asked if I could photograph the box and a sandwich which goes with it.
A fresh sandwich was prepared on the spot as they all are. I was also pleased to note that there was a small bag of cut up pieces of fresh fruit to go with the other kid friendly items. They also have around half a dozen high chairs for babes in arms.
