We are a small Speciality coffee shop. Our mission is to source the best possible speciality beans and compliment those beans with the best brewing methods. We want to create a memorable experience that is sure to excite our customers and make great coffee accessible to the local community. Our delicious, made-to-order crepes and waffles are available in savoury and sweet and we feature new gourmet varieties each week. We have a selection of fine pieces and homemade bakes, including gluten & dairy free options. Just like our coffee, our food is defined by its simplicity and quality. We love the story & taste of well-crafted produce and have a genuine and natural focus on seasonal, local produce. We recognise and use the amazing produce available from around Aberdeenshire and the UK. With this focus on simple and delicious food in mind, we offer a menu that is designed to showcase the way that food can be paired with coffee and other drinks.
