Coffee House is a vibrant and busy venue which had a lovely atmosphere. Hot chocolate amazing and sandwiches lovely. Gluten free bread good. Good choice of food and cakes looked divine. Hoping to go back and sample these.

It is a weird anomaly about Aberdeen city centre: it has very few decent cafes in the city centre. It has the usual featureless chains like Costa's and Starbucks but no independent cafes. Until The Coffee House. At last, Aberdonians have a high quality cafe with pleasant staff, wifi, plenty seating and tables (although as it gets increasingly more popular... More

Been to Coffee House every time I had the possibility to pass by city centre. Having an addiction to café bars I've visited most of them in Aberdeen and I can say that Coffee House is by far the best I've seen out there. Even though situated in the most central place of Aberdeen, the ambience makes it the most... More

Right in the heart of the city, coffee house is an amazing way of spending a chilled afternoon with friends and family. With live music playing and amazing staff it is a must go place in Aberdeen. The owner on top of that is very welcoming and approachable and haven't seen such incredible hospitality in the whole of Aberdeen. Plus... More

I returned to this coffee House for a late morning snack Smoked Salmon and cream cheese sandwich along with a fresh Cappuccino at their outside seating area very Continental for Aberdeen. i have been here a couple of times and never disappointed the outside looks small but its a large seating area inside.

It's a wonderful, relaxed cafe in the Belmont Street area. Great coffee and very good tea (albeit not a wide selection). On Fridays there is live music from independent artists which give the place a nice vibe. With free wifi you also chose to get a little done here.

Have visited the coffee house a few times and have always had a good experience. The coffee blend is fantastic! Lovely selection of cakes (my little girl loves the brownies!) and really like the fact they have a self service water station if you'd like to quench your thirst. Staff have always been friendly and helpful and the soup and... More

Popped in for a bite to eat. Staff were friendly and food was excellent- a wide variety of food and drinks. Highly recommend the beef sandwich on brown and the vegan chocolate cake.

I used to love going to the Coffeehouse because of its good food, great atmosphere and good service but then I found out how terribly the employees were treated. Who I believe is the owner would opening yell at his employees over small mistakes in front of customers and when a customer came to their defence he also screamed at.... More

Dear Alex, We are really happy we could meet your expectations and present you good food, great atmosphere and good service. It is a pity though that you decided to give us just one star based on rumours of people whom you have not met, instead of having your experiences as a base to the review. Like we wrote in... More
