This is one of my favourite coffee shops, tucked away just off of Union Street. I very much enjoyed my smoked salmon salad with a great loose leaf tea whilst hubby polished off his Brie sandwich. There is always a great buzz about the place.

Had a soup & sandwich lunch at this sociable eatery just off Union Street. Seating is either at large communal refectory tables or at smaller tables for two, with an outside pavement area for sunny days or hardy customers. Todays choice of soups was either lentil or broccoli & potato, both were very tasty, but could have done with being... More

Another Aberdeen cafe with more style over substance. It looks nice but the food is overpriced for the quality. Cakes are often dry and portions are mean. It's also another coffee shop that just can't do tea properly. Though I've been there a few times water is rarely boiling and the tea gets cold very quickly. The staff are very... More

I was greeted with a warm welcome and was surprised with the variety of soft drinks, smoothies, beers, wines and indeed coffee that there was. To add to that there was plenty of cakes and biscuits and treats to choose from. I went for the carrot cake and a slab of carrot cake I got! Excellent stuff! Lovely creamy topping... More

Going in this morning (Tuesday 9th August) twice, once by myself and once with friends and my baby in the pram, I was welcomed with a smile by the staff, who delivered my tasty cappuccino and a pain au chocolat in good time. Big thank you to Hemma, George, and Anna for their good service! :)

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
