Great place to meet friends and family for a coffee or lunch Its rustic look gives it a homely touch and the sandwich selection would please any discerning customer my smoked salmon on brown bread was fresh and tasty and my coffee tasted of fresh roast beans. I will be making this a permanent stop when in town.

Popped in for lunch (4 adults). The soup and sandwich combo at £6.75 is good value. A choice of two home made soups and a list of appetising home made sandwiches. The tomato & chill, and lentil were variously selected and tasted great. Our various sandwiches included roast beef and tomato, Brie and chutney, again excellent. The service has improved... More

I keep coming back to the Coffee House over and over again when in need of a quick lunch around Aberdeen! Love the soups and sandwiches! The coffee is also good and I always take time admire the photos or prints on show... Love the big tables and it was always quite busy but very friendly!

Found this Restaurant by chance, and what a lucky find. The butternut squash soup was the best I have ever tasted, the sandwich that came with the deal was also delicious, filled with beef and beet root chutney and some salad, so well filled that I asked for a 'doggy bag' to take the second half home which they willingly...

We went for lunch on Friday and had a lovely lunch. Soup, sandwiches and coffees. They keep it simple and deliver it very well. The toilets were clean and fresh. Good selection of magazines. Lovely atmosphere. What a gem.
