Took my girlfriend here for both our first time yesterday. We just loved every second of it. The Latte and cakes were outstanding, could not fault them. Inside was lovely, warm and very spacious. I will be back for more delicious coffee and cake soon. By far the best wee cafe in Town. Thanks.

As any visitor will soon find out if you are a coffee hound then Aberdeen may make you struggle for your daily fix.

I've visited The Coffee House twice this week and have been equally impressed on both occasions! Had a chance to sample two different kinds of their freshly made soups and sandwiches and everything was really fresh and tasty. On my first visit the service was really quick and on the second visit despite the fact the cafe was short-staffed and... More

I came here to work on school work and loved the atmosphere especially with the pillows and window seats. Unfortunately the service was unfriendly and I felt a bit rushed. The first time I was here we had to go back up to the counter because they had forgotten food with our order but the second time I encountered no... More

Formerly always reliable my last visit was a bit concerning - no quiche and salad, soups not written up BUT they are reliably vegan (this from a neck of the country where I've been assured that soup made with chicken stock is 'vegetarian' - so very very important) Yes busy, yes had to wait a for the food but the...

This place was a treasure and a love. I frequent here from my work through different points of the day. This is the fifth visit of terrible service and can't go untold. There is no smile at the till, dirty tables where I had to ask on occasions to clear even with my food getting brought over with the dirty... More

After waiting 40 minutes for our order, and checking twice, just been told there is no filling for the sandwiches we ordered. Several tables have requested refund and walked out. Very poor service. No one informing customers

Always very busy but worth it. Sandwiches are made fresh & good portions. They come with crisps and salad. Staff friendly. Love the decor of the place.

It is rather expensive for lunch but local fresh ingredients so worth it. Nice homely decor, it was busy but large enough we were able to find seats.
