Books and Beans - Aberdeen

In an effort to live local this year I am trying to avoid chain coffee shops, chain motorway stops and chain bookstores. Occasionally a cinema will sneak in.  Any blog labelled independent living will feature finds in the UK of any of these, or if I'm lucky, a combination.First up is Books and Beans in Aberdeen, a great place in the centre of Aberdeen for a large selection of second hand books at reasonable prices, some great home cooking and internet access. And an art gallery.They also hold a poetry evening and have published a couple of recipe books featuring their brilliant soups.A very welcoming and relaxing place with no pressure to give up your table.Although the soups are brilliant I already knew that so a massive amount of pancakes were ordered. I wasn't greedy, that's the portion size!
