My partner and I have been to the coffee house quite a few times recently and I have to say there hasn't been a visit with disappointment. The soup and sandwich is a great deal at £7.45 which you get a greatly filled sandwich(with many tasty flavours to choose from) and a reasonably sized bowl of soup. There are usually... More

The staff are very unhelpful, i took my family for a light lunch whilst they were visiting me last week and my little sister is GF. The cashier could not have been anymore unpleased to be answering our questions. She was blunt with us and we are a very friendly and easily pleased family, so we just tried to gauge... More

Went in a couple of Sundays ago for a cold drink and cake with my friend. Had to wait for the customer in front to be served, then another customer who pushed in front, had something the matter with her glass so she was seen to. Meanwhile I waited and waited and waited some more! The young man behind the... More

Service was good. The bread used for the sandwich seemed stale. The ladies toilets were filthy. I had been before and enjoyed our lunch but not this time. Plenty other cafes cleaner and cheaper in Aberdeen. Will not be returning.

I like this place. But man it's so noisy. Because it's good it's busy. The benches and tables and atmosphere has a buzz. Problem is you stand in line waiting to be served listening to the coffee machine getting bashed. The acoustics of the open space mean sounds fills the room. At least they're not playing music as well. It... More

Popped in for a spot of lunch. Soup and sandwich. The atmosphere was bustling as always and the place was full which is always a good sign. The leek and potato soup was nice and the sandwich was tasty too. Well done:)

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with my friend today. The bacon and egg toasties are really tasty! Good coffee, nice decor and I am a fan of the social seating layout. There is free wifi available if you "check in" on Facebook. A popular place it seems, as it was busy when we went in at 12 and by the time... More

Bacon and egg toasties amazing. Large area, but be early on Sunday to get a table. Staff very obliging.

The shop was slightly off the crowded areas in Aberdeen city centre so I've never really considered going there and was surprised to see how packed it was, considering how sunny it was outside. The latte I had was so good, it's the right amount of coffee and milk and not too sour for my liking. I'm so glad I've... More

They serve a variety of drinks and snacks as well. The staff is really well intended and well behaved and they easily become friends with loyal customers. The prices are fair.
