Decent spot for tea and cakes - Edit

We came here for tea and a little treat. It’s great that they have all vegan cakes and treats. I like their store upstairs as well. Just wish they had organic food and dessert options.

Pros: vegan cakes, health store

Cons: not organic

Best cakes in town - Edit

Foodstory never ceases to amaze me with their cakes. I highly recommend their vegan brownies! It also seems like they are now fully vegan.

good! - Edit

Absolutely loved the whole food shop above the restaurant and the food was good. Although even if you order the same food you get different sides, for me that was a small con. Otherwise a very cozy place!

bacon and salmon - Edit

Food story is a fnssctic cafe which reeally is a class apart from most places in scotland. i just wish they would ditch the salmon and bacon at breakfast!
there is only meat at breakfastm lunch is all vegetarian and vegan and nights are vegan only. i
an emphasis on helath ann tranquility the food was fantastin and salads were so tasty and filling.
great selection of drinks and deserts,
this is a must visit if in aberdeen.

Theu have just opened upstairs as a shop and this is 100% vegan.

Pros: loads of vegan, staff, cool cool cafe

Cons: breakfast

variable! - Edit

i've visited Food Story many times and had some good experiences, and some bad ones.

there is frequent confusion due to their representation of themselves as a vegetarian/vegan cafe despite serving meat and dairy.

their food is fresh, delicious and healthy, but occasionally at the cost of flavour and texture (particularly in gluten-free cakes)

Pros: vegan lasagne, has abolished surcharge for dairy-free milk

Cons: frequent confusion about what is vegetarian/vegan , overpriced, particularly evening specials

As a pleasant surprise, the dinner menu here is 100% vegan. I went here in as part of a group of 7 and so got to sample many things off the menu. It was really good.

Pros: All vegan at night

awesome! - Edit

I wish it was completely vegetarian and vegan food because it deserves 5 starts!!!

It was amazing! The things these people can do with simple food is amazing!

From the recycled material building with the mismatched jugs of water to the amazing presentation and flavours of food everything was delightful!

This has without a doubt became my favourite new spot when I'm home I just wish we had one in stirling to!!

Keep up the amazing food and perfect setting. The staff are especially lovely and helpful and will cater to everything!
Special shoutout to Camilla who helped with the difficult decision of picking just 1 thing to eat.

Pros: friendly service , delicious food, even near available

Cons: can be very busy (good thing for them)

The best place for vegans in Aberdeen - Edit

This place is the best one for vegans and vegetarians in Aberdeen. They serve various options of sandwiches, soups, wraps and salads, and are increasing the number of vegan cake options (try the vegan brownie!)
They also go beyond the soya milk for hot beverages, with other options such as almond.

It is a local shop, run by very friendly staff and with fairtrade and local products for sale. They list the suppliers they work with, from the region.

Pros: Good food, Increasing vegan options, Friendly staff

Cons: Serves meat, Closed on Sundays

Unique in Aberdeen - Edit

I travel to Aberdeen every now and then and have been desperately looking for a place that is vegetarian or seriously "veg-friendly".
Although not vegetarian, this place is the closest you will get to healthy,organic and wide range of vegetarian food and soup.
I have been there once and can't wait to go back.

Went there again today and was PLEASANTLY surprised to learn their coffee and choclate-cocoa is fairtrade as well.
