Great lunchtime venue that provides nice food and snacks and supports a great charity - the volunteers and staff are very friendly and service is good - food and drinks made fresh to order and it’s in a central location

My aunties like the cafe because it is cheap and cheerful. They have a coffee and a slice of toast which is all they need. The staff appear to be volunteers but I could be wrong. They are all friendly and attentive.

Popped in for a morning coffee and a cake to the Citadel Cafe. No problem finding a table although there were a number of customers. Staff were very helpful. Coffee and cakes were also good and I think some of the baking was 'home made'....More

A great experience, learning about the salvation army in Scotland, with a great climb to the top of the tower - you have the best view of Aberdeen. Easily one of the best views in all of the UK.
