Pickie Centre Cafe Changeover

Pickie cafe 2The 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.
