“If society is not just individuals and their families, and thriving communities do exist, then you are creating one.”
– Foodstory's favourite customer review.
Foodstory are a group of people who, in 2013, launched a kickstarter with a dream of building a space where anyone of any age, any walk of life of life could not just eat great, healthy food but could go and feel part of a community through art and music. They believe in bringing people together. They built the cafe themselves, and most of the furniture was donated or built from salvaged parts, so the shelves are a bit wonky, the chairs are odd, and their ageing, yet beautiful-sounding Monington & Weston piano was left to them by one of the founders, Sandy’s late grandfather. You can play it if you like.
From morning to evening, Foodstory serve healthy, locally-sourced food for all dietary requirements, brew tasty tasty coffee, and stage regular events to give people a chance to get together and have fun. Since the very beginning, they have worked passionately to employ staff who share not only a passion for healthy food and great coffee, but also the love of bringing people together.
Foodstory think that Aberdeen is a great city with amazing people in it and wanted to create a space that the city is proud of for many years. They want to serve less meat in the cafe as they feel that focusing on a more veggie diet is friendlier to our planet. Using a lot of organic vegetables and food in their dishes and mostly local cheeses, eggs, chutneys, jams; they make everything else themselves- soups, hot pots, dips, salads, cakes etc. Foodstory want you to feel inspired and feel good when you eat in the café.
