We found the Upperkrust by chance, while walking from town to our free parking space. Our attention was caught by the sign for stovies, which are getting harder to come by these days. We also noticed the long line of students from Robert Gordon University waiting to get in, so we thought that it would be good. And it was!
The first and second times we ate at the UpperKrust, we went for the stovies. The portions are huge! We could each barely finish a small container. (They offer you a slice of beetroot on the top - that's an option, and doesn't cost extra.) The last two times, we got the ham and cheddar with chutney on a mega softie. The sandwiches were as big as a small plate!
The prices are very reasonable; service is great; all the employees look as though they're having a wonderful time; and every time we've been in the Upperkrust, the place has been packed out with students, blue collar workers, office workers, and shoppers who know the value of good food at a good price.
Unfortunately, there are only two tables inside the cafe, so if you don't get a seat, you may have to go across the street to the benches on the other side. Or you can walk up the hill to St. Nicholas Kirkyard, and have a repast with the dead.
The Upperkrust is located at 46 Upperkirkgate, which is just up the hill from the Bon Accord and St. Nicholas Centers, going toward Marischal College. You can check out their menu at upperkrustaberdeen.co.uk/menus/. This is a great place for lunch if you're in Aberdeen, although they close at 4 p.m. most days. They also do breakfast (open at 7 a.m.)
This a cafe where you can get a good meal for a good price, and that doesn't happen too often in Aberdeen. And, if you can find the free parking (yes, it's available), then all the better!
p.s.: The tablet which they sell at the register is absolutely delicious!
