Went for hot chocolate and crepe. Staff are excellent and the placement in old Aberdeen is a great location. Loved my food well worth a visit.

I've been going to Kilau since it was located back on Little Belmont Street, and Im never disappointed. I lived on their coffee during my uni degree, and its probably the best in Aberdeen. Their gluten free chocolate brownie is also a favourite!

Great coffee and lovely little boxed salads in recyclable packaging. Sadly they don't serve them upstairs in the sit in cafe. There is an outdoor space to sit in but it can be a bit chilly as it's mostly in te shade and in Aberdeen!...More

my favorite coffee shop in Aberdeen. they have a terrace open when its warm and an upstairs seating. the only downside is that they tend to close early in summer around 6. yet their coffee is to die for. v tasty indeed.

One of our best bistros cafes in Aberdeen. Especially the desserts are homemade, and the cheesecake is simply amazing.Food is also great. Will definitely recommend it, as the location is very quiet since no cars are allowed there. Plus, the prices are very reasonable.
