my favorite coffee shop in Aberdeen. they have a terrace open when its warm and an upstairs seating. the only downside is that they tend to close early in summer around 6. yet their coffee is to die for. v tasty indeed.

One of our best bistros cafes in Aberdeen. Especially the desserts are homemade, and the cheesecake is simply amazing.Food is also great. Will definitely recommend it, as the location is very quiet since no cars are allowed there. Plus, the prices are very reasonable.

This was a lovely discovery in Old Aberdeen. Really high quality food, freshly prepared and the service was excellent. There were several different choices of focaccia, salads, pasta and soup. I had a focaccia with chimichurri chicken, red pepper and Brie, which hit the spot.

excellent value for money, great food and coffee, busy during term time and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a visit if you in the area (not close to the centre of town).

Great coffee and friendly staff make every visit a pleasure. With a take away and a sit in option with different menu upstairs there is something for everyone. Plus the owner is both lactose and gluten intolerant so there are good options available for both....More

Just dropped in for coffee. Excellent Chemex filter coffee and a beautifully moist almond and chocolate cake. Food on other people's plates looked good. Wish I lived closer!
