Aberdeen City Guides – Cafe’s


Finally back with another Aberdeen City Guide Post, this time around I’m sharing some of the best cafe’s in Aberdeen. This one has been a long time coming because I’ve had to go around each cafe & test them out! That’s just one of the perks of this series – although by waist line isn’t thanking me…

Now I haven’t covered all the cafe’s because I didn’t actually realise there were so many in Aberdeen. I have however covered some of my favourites & I have a list of some more at the bottom of the post.. So here we go.


The Craftsman – 2 Guild Street  

The Craftsman is a new cafe in Aberdeen & It also doubles as a bar at night! The craftsman has a great rustic feel to it & they make a great cappuccino! Next time I’m defiantly going to try their fluffy pancakes & I will head there for a gin or two soon!


Cognito Cafe – 39 St Swithin Street 

Cognito Cafe has been on my list of places to visit for ages & I finally found some time to head over a couple of weeks ago. And it didn’t disappoint, with a variety of snacks & beverages there’s plenty to choose from! They also include a small square of toffee with all their hot drinks which I think adds a great touch.


Corner Tree Cafe – 3 Whitehall Rd 

Corner Tree Cafe is a new find for me after I seen it recommended by another aberdeen blogger. The Corner Tree Cafe is the sweetest little spot with great coffee and a wide selection of gluten free cakes – try the caramel shortbread its delicious. They also offer a full breakfast & lunch menu too, I might just have to head back for lunch some time soon!


Almondine – 39-43 Thistle St 

Almondie is the perfect little afternoon tea spot. Specialising in Macaroons which are to die for, you can choose from a variety of different flavours. This would be the perfect spot for a girls afternoon tea.


The Coffee House – 1 Gaelic Lane 

The Coffee House is a great little coffee shop just off of Belmont Street in Aberdeen. The Interior is really homely & rustic which makes it even more inviting. They do a variety of sandwiches, cakes, soups and drinks all with gluten free & vegan options.

The Bread Maker – 50-52 Rosemount Viaduct 

The Bread Maker is a favourite of mine as they make the most delicious chocolate chip muffins. The Bread Maker is right across from my work so it’s perfect for grabbing a small mid morning treat!


Bonobo – 73-75 Skene St 

Bonobo is another new cafe in Aberdeen and it’s completely vegan. Bonobo is right round the corner from my work so I’ve popped in a few times to try their cakes which are really really good! I’m yet to try any other their food but I’ve heard really good things!

Cult of Coffee – 28 Esslemont Avenue 

This one I haven’t tried myself but my dad has went in for a coffee and he said it was really good. The cult of coffee is the perfect little cafe to work out of and to meet up with friends too!
