“Bad show”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Don't serve sandwiches til after 12 noon? Bad show Coffee House, NOT one of the changes for the better. Chose cheese scone instead. Tasted the raising agent but certainly not the cheese. Coffee not so strong either. I can see now why what used to be a really busy place is now a lot more quiet. Plenty more places to choose from nearby.

Dear Customer,

Please accept my apologies for not replying to you earlier. Since your visit we have re-introduced serving sandwiches and soup from 11.30am. We have also improved our scones and coffee. Accordingly we would like you to try us again. Can I offer you free scones and coffee for two to encourage you back. My email is calumyoungsmith@gmail.com or text me on 07905160695.

I do hope to hear from you.

Best Regards.

Calum (co-owner)

“Cold coffee, full of froth and no milk!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

A nice cafe but the coffees needs some work! Ordered a latte and it was mostly froth. You needed to eat it with a spoon, not drink it!

“Lovely Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Visited this week with my wife for coffee and a scone. We have been here several times over the time our daughter has been at Aberdeen Uni and we have always had good food and excellent service. The venue itself is as others say 'Very Relaxing' highly recommended.

“Relaxing cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Nice little cafe with good breakfast and lunch style menu. Quick service, and clean, simple interior with lots of natural light makes this a perfect spot to read or work or chat.

“nice soup and sandwich combo, good cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

this is a great place for a soup and sandwhich lunch, and it also does great cakes. however, if you come during lunch time the soup smell can be strong and offputting for coffee drinkers. furthermore, it can get a little noisy at times, but when quieter it's a comfy spot to hang out. free tap water, which i always rate highly.
