This was a lovely discovery in Old Aberdeen. Really high quality food, freshly prepared and the service was excellent. There were several different choices of focaccia, salads, pasta and soup. I had a focaccia with chimichurri chicken, red pepper and Brie, which hit the spot.

I always get take away here. Some of the best soy milk mochas, cappuccinos etc I've ever had! They do a hummus and olive baguette which is delicious and often have a vegan cake option. Friendly staff.
