We are a local independent café bistro specialising in good old fashioned wholesome food made from natural ingredients with no added chemicals or preservatives, so we provide something different to the usual brands you find on the high street. We are passionate about quality and taste.
To eat is a necessity. To eat intelligently is an art.
Bev opened her tiny café bistro in May 2014 with a passion to provide Aberdeen with locally sourced food made the old fashioned way, from scratch with no additives or preservatives.
Bev trained in London in Sugarcraft for 6 years in the 1980’s working with several high profile companies including Harrods and The Waldorf Hotel and moved to Fettercairn in 1995 where she set up CakesbyDesign making wedding cakes and gateaux of distinction. Her reputation for quality was built up by doing local farmers markets and this was where her passion for good quality local food was borne.
Alan joined Bev in Dec 2014. His background is as a master butcher and Food Hygiene. Being a coeliac he is passionate about producing high quality gluten and wheat free food and with his exceptional cooking skills he now hand makes from base ingredients most of the food we serve in the café / bistro. Everything we make in the kitchen is gluten and wheat free.
Our cakes are made by Bev in her workshop in Fettercairn and gluten wheat free cakes and biscuits are made by Alan in the café bistro. Our bread is baked fresh every morning.
