This place is a great location in Aberdeen, just off Belmont street. The toasties are delicious but could be a tad cheaper if I'm honest. If it is really busy it can be too noisy and not that relaxing! The deal they do with the little card where you can collect stamps mean you can try and get a free... More

Lovely place to have a relaxing tea/coffee and a fancy piece. The Gunpowder green tea was excellent and the muffin was good (although nothing to shout loudly about). £5 for tea and fancy piece so not insanely expensive. Worth a visit.

One of my daughter's favorite haunts (studying at Univ of Aberdeen for just a semester), we enjoyed two different meals here during my one-week stay. They were both delightful: delicious sandwiches and cakes; wonderful coffee drinks -- all in a cozy atmosphere. Loved this place.

Lovely place for a snack or coffee and cake only pity was that we didn't get the opportunity to go back in the evening to enjoy the entertainment

Reasonably priced lunch with 4 choices of soups and a long list of sandwich choice. Tasted delicious and was served quickly by friendly staff. Didn't have a cake but they looked amazing and generous size slices. Was very busy and popular so we had to sit at shared long benches which was the only downside but would go back.

Came here with my mother, sister and law and baby. Had lunch, followed by tea and scones. It was busy, but not noisy - just a nice buzz! We had soup and sandwiches which were delicious. The menu is varied and caters to different dietary requirements. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. There was enough space for the pram.... More

This is a great place that came recommended to me by a friend. I have previously declared there to be no good cafes in Aberdeen, and although I have tried out a couple of well-reviewed others, I have not been able to eat my words- until now! The Coffee House seems in an unlikely spot as you walk towards it,... More

Great place to just sit and relax. Friendly, quick service and lots of seats to choose from. Definitely need to work my way through the coffee syrups!

We are an independent lunchtime destination serving well priced freshly made soup and sandwiches from same day baked organic bread using local ingredients and quality ingredients where the filling is not local. Our soups are made on the premises same day as are all our cakes. Our coffee is roasted locally (one street away) and we don't use preservatives. We aim to provide quality and taste with a smile. Do come try us. We look forward to seeing you. The Coffee House Team.
