I had lunch with friends at Bonobo and really enjoyed everything about it. I'm not vegan but thought everything was tasty and will definitely go back. I had a particularly nice coconut latte which tasted and smelled delicious. There is a lovely outdoor seating area...More

Had a lovely brunch here at the start of the year. It was fitted out with recycled materials and I particularly loved the bathroom with its copper pipes.

such a friendly place and so good to know that anything and everything can be sampled. No need to worry about the stock used for the soup or what fats were used in the cooking. Delicious food to eat inside or take away. Keep on...More

What a cute, unique cafe - it's fab! Great service from all and very friendly. I felt the choices were a little limited but all vegan. The seating area upstairs is so relaxed and the outdoor seating looked lovely, although we din't get out as...More

Can't think of a downside to this place. Well priced quality vegan food served by chatting and knowledgeable staff who couldn't do enough for us. Food is original and tasty. Garden out the back is full of charm and genuinely the whole place is just...More

We often visit Bonobo, more often for takeaways as opposed to sitting in. The cakes, scones, wraps, salads and coffees are amazing! If you do visit at peak times, expect it to be busy and don’t moan about it on trip advisor :-( Give them...More

We went to Bonobo for lunch on a recent visit to Aberdeen. It's a lovely space with a huge outside garden which is unfortunately too cold in the winter. The staff were super attentive and lovely and the food was so delicious, we ended up...More

After months of running a pop-up cafe, crowdfunding and working on the fit-out, we finally opened the first 100% vegan, worker's cooperative cafe in Aberdeen! :-)

On the menu you can find breakfast and lunch options, and obviously cakes cakes cakes! ;-)
Everyday we've got raw and gluten-free alternatives available, too!

If you're in a hurry you can always grab a goodie from our to-go fridge that stocks wraps and sandwiches. Nevertheless, if you do have a wee moment, we strongly recommend checking our upstairs sitting area, especially the garden where you can watch our veggies and herbs growing (and taste them in our food!).

We work with local suppliers such as Bread Maker and other co-ops from the area- Greencity. Most of our fruits and veggies come from Everyday Organics and we couldn't be happier with their taste.

Hope you enjoy your BONOxperience! ;-)
