When visiting family and friends in Aberdeen I often try to pop in to Foodstory in the West End. A veggie cafe with plenty of vegan options, they launched in 2013 after a successful Kickstarter campaign which allowed them to create a quirky multifunctional community space which continues to grow and develop.

It was a Sunday when I most recently visited Foodstory with a friend, and we found that you can only have pancakes, coffee and cakes - not the full breakfast menu which was a bit of a shame but pancakes do make the perfect brunch so we went ahead and chose our toppings. First off you decide if you'd like one or two pancakes, then choose from dairy or soy yogurt, next, select your granola - superfood or quinoa, and finish it off with some tasty extras. I had maple syrup, chia seeds and rhubarb compote while my friend opted for date caramel with hers. The pancakes were delicious and very filling! We had some yummy coffees too, a chai latte and yogi yogi chai, they can be made from a range of dairy free milks. Foodstory offer a great selection at lunch time with options including their salad and half wraps where you can mix and match and end up with a very full plate! They also have an evening menu with tasty sounding hot pots and platters. Upstairs you will find the fab multifunctional vegan wholefoods shop space which also has gorgeous plants from The Potting Shed, workshop space and is where they run yoga classes and other events. The shop display shelving is on wheels so it can be moved around to make the space flexible, what a great idea! If you're visiting both make sure to check out the shop times as they differ to the cafe hours.
