Ok, so the place is pretty small so you’d expect to wait for a table from time to time. We were a party of 6 and phoned ahead to see if they had space for us and was told they did but that could change....More

I am not sure... Somehow I do not think so, given the small size... you may indeed go up and find that it is full ... Best call up and check.

The Long Dog Cafe Is set in the heart of Aberdeen's West End and is an independent establishment offering a friendly and cosy atmosphere. Our Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch menu is available to eat in or takeaway. Also on offer: coffee, tea, Matcha, ice cream, Freakshakes and hot chocolates. Unfortunately we do not take table reservations due to our limited space and although we do not have dogs staying at the cafe customers are more than welcome to bring theirs along. The cafe has a fantastic range of dog treats, toys and ice cream to make the pooches experience just as enjoyable as their owners. Gluten Free and Vegan options available, please ask a member of staff for more details.
