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!

Popped in for a quick soup n sandwich and wasn't disappointed. Big hearty bowls of soup with plenty flavour and a lot of filling in the sandwich. Both were very well priced. A great lunch and in an independent local coffee house.

Located just off Belmont Street this coffee shop is pleasantly different to the main chains. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Plenty of choice for breakfast, brunch as well as a great selection of cakes. Extremely reasonable in terms of pricing and will most definitely return.

A charming cozy find. My partner and i found this privately run coffee house [ Restaurant ] .just by chance. The staff were very friendly and very welcoming. The owner was woundering from table to table chatting to guests and checking on there needs. Nice personal touch, you dont see much of these days. Food was fresh and made to... More

The staff at the coffee house are welcoming and helpful. Their victorian sponge cake is lovely and the hot chocolate is also delicious. They have a variety of food types, whether you are very hungry, or just wanting tea and cake. They also offer a wide variety of food for dietary differences (eg vegan cake)

Thank Jennifer F
