Food Review By Aife
Cafe@no.65 in Victoria Street, Kirkwall, directly across from the Red Cross Shop is run by Orkney Blide Trust.
The food is reasonable and freshly prepared with a range of daily specials.
The tables, cutlery and surroundings are very clean.
The reasonably priced lunch we selected for 2 was:
- Cheese sandwich £3.95
- Panini with honey roast ham and Orkney cheese filling £4.95
- Slice of cake £2.00
- Zero sugar can of juice £1.20
- Coffee £2.40
- Total £14.50
Both the panini and the sandwich came with a good sized side salad – which was lovely and fresh with home made coleslaw
Also on offer that day was soup of the day (carrot and cumin) and the specials of baked potatoes.
The menu – is clearly written with a numbering system for allergens.
There is also a children’s menu.
The food was very good. Local produce is used including coffee from the Orkney Roastery.
If in town check it out for yourselves. Very friendly staff made this a pleasant lunch but if you don’t want to sit in they also run a takeaway service.

promote mental well-being in Orkney, through active personalised support with a focus on recovery.
Did this used to be ‘Eats & Treats’? We’re always on the look-out for good places to eat, and it’s for the Blide Trust, so next time we’re in Kirkwall, we’ll definitely try it.
