The newest branch of the popular coffee shop in Aberdeen’s west end, Rocksalt & Snails offers deli-style selections and a seasonal bistro lunch and evening menu. There’s a delicious range of salads, panini and platters and an excellent choice of speciality teas and coffees as well as wines and beers. Takeaway is available and there's an impressive selection of cakes and home-bakes -the scones are a particular highlight. The menu aims to use quality local artisan products, and you can enjoy a Highland surf and turf of salmon and venison. The friendly service and cosy atmosphere complete with wood burning stove means that this small but neatly formed café outstrips the more traditional tea room offerings in Ballater.
