Judith Glue Real Food Cafe

The Real Food Cafe and Restaurant is situated at the back of Judith Glues shop - an Aladdins cave situated opposite St Magnus Cathedral.  Everything is cooked in the open kitchen headed by Kirsty and her team of great home cooks. You can watch your food being made right in front of you while enjoying a glass of good wine or local beer.
Judith's ethos is to use as much local fresh Orkney produce as possible as these days customers want to know what is on their plates and where it is sourced from locally.
The atmosphere is all about feeling like you are sitting in your own kitchen at home! A specials board changes daily and choices can be anything from local Dressed Westray Crab to hand dived local scallops or Orkney Dark Island Beef Stew. 
Produce is available to buy in the shop along with Judiths collection of Orkney Knitwear and loads of many other interesting things you can even shop while you enjoy a meal! Customers can also even have a try sitting on an original Orkney chair! 
The premises are also licenced for entry to young children and they are very welcome, there is also Sigurd the wooden rocking horse who is now 30 years old!! Who is always a popular attraction for young children.
Daily specials are posted regularly on the Facebook page for Judith Glue Shop and The Real Food Cafe.
