This is a lovely independent bookshop with a cafe in the centre of Aberdeen. Hope it stays the same!

Books and Beans combines modern, local, and cosy very well. All the staff are very friendly and seem to enjoy working with each other and the customers which is unfortunately uncommon in many places. There is a wide selection of food and drinks to choose from. I was almost overwhelmed. I really enjoyed my bacon, brie, and cranberry panini. The store allows you to pay be card and contactless which is a large plus. I will have to make this place my regular.

Books and Beans is not your brand spanking chi chi eatery, it is to be honest, a bit shabby, but in a good way. It gives the air of being ‘studenty’ without being too ‘intelligent’ and is an ideal filling station either before or after a visit to the Gallery (at the end of the street).

Tables and chairs are available on two floors for dining in. A takeout menu is also available. The top floor is dedicated to the internet cafe at a very reasonable rate.

Food is plentiful and well presented and the coffee frothy and rich. They serve the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tasted. All soups, sadly for this carnivore, are vegetarian, but there are plenty of meat options in the generous sandwich platters. A wide selection of desserts and sweet treats are available. There is also a gluten free option – just ask. My one complaint is that although they are very efficient at taking your order, actual delivery of it can take some time, so don’t be in too much of a hurry. The upside is, while you are waiting, there are thousands of second hand books you can browse.
As a bibliophile, I feel right at home.

Overall Books and Beans is something different, about as far away from a chain eatery like Pret as you can get, with friendly staff, delicious food (locally sourced where possible) and a fantastic relaxed atmosphere. As has been said elsewhere, it is Aberdeen’s best kept secret, so shhh. Highly recommended.
