Aberdeen: Terroir Deli in Cults

terroir deli cults aberdeen

Whilst I'm off work, and in Aberdeen, I usually like to take some time to explore the shops and the city centre during the week whilst the streets a bit quieter. After a trip into town for some new work clothes my mum picked me up and decided to drive me out to an area of Aberdeen I'm not as familiar with for a bit an explore.

We headed out into the Cults area of Aberdeen which sticks out to the west of the city and is generally considered the 'posher' end of town in hunt of a few independent shops. After raking through dresses in the Chest and Heart Foundation shop and an independent shop I can't remember the name of where I decided I couldn't justify an £80 price tag for what could have been the most beautiful jacket I've ever seen (f you can justify that then this nameless shop is along Great Western Road) me and mum stopped for a bit to eat and a latte in a small café in the same area called Terroir Deli.

It's a cute and tiny café which sells the generic stuff a café would - there was no soya milk option so I had myself a regular coffee with a shot of caramel syrup whilst my mum went for a latte, and we shared the hummus platter. I didn't take a note of what was on the plate whilst there - but from the photo I can see some toast, some kind of fancy melba bread, olives, artichokes, salad and sun dried tomatoes (there's also also glass bottles of water on all tables).

Despite the simplicity of what was on offer on the counter, the real selling point of this place was that it doubles up as a food shop. And by food shop I mean it sells just about every kind of tea. And jam. And it sells crackers in a variety of flavours. Oh and snails. Yes, snails. Naturally I didn't buy a packet but if you're living in Aberdeen and are just having one big snail craving - this is apparently where you need to head.

And there's cute bathrooms:

I wouldn't head along to Cults just for a cup of coffee or a hummus platter. But of you live in (or are randomly visiting) the Cults/Garthdee/Bieldside/Mannofield area of Aberdeen (maybe you attend RGU?) I'd stop by for a wee coffee and a platter after looking at over-priced jackets on the same street.

Or you could head out there after returning from holiday in France.

  2. I'm always touchy about bathrooms. A crap bathroom in a nice place can ruin it for me. Glad I'm not the only one!
