“Great food let down by service attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

Had good food and nice modern atmosphere. Not overly impressed in going to counter to order when there are so few tables.
Main issue was staff attitude. The lady who seemed to be the owner had a very cavalier attitude to customer service. She was abrupt and did not exude friendliness. Not once was I asked if everything was ok.

“Good Coffee & Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013 via mobile

Nice place , tables well spaced out , very friendly service. My wife & I had sandwiches & coffees. Very good sandwich although maybe a wee bit too much side salad. Great coffees - just right. Good service & free good speed Wi-Fi.

“A salad and sauce delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

My partner and I chanced on Dee Licious in the village of Banchory a few weeks ago whilst visiting family and friends in the area.
We weren't expecting anything too exciting, just a warm snack and a beveridge of some sort as the day was on the chilly side.
What we received from the three very pleasant staff members present were lovely hot and tasty toasted sandwiches (I had a panini and my partner just a regular toastie) flanked by the sweetest and crispiest salad I have tasted in a long time and an absolutely gorgeous garlic dip!
The dip was so Dee Licious that I asked the staff member who served us what type it was, but unfortunately it was a wholesale one so unobtainable to jo public.
Will definately be back to enjoy this again though!
My partner - he paid the bill no this occasion - said it was a tad pricey, but I still think it was very, very worht it!
