About Cognito Deli
A new concept in Aberdeen’s West End. Not just a Deli serving brunches and suppers but also offering an extensive range of Wines, Gins and Craft Beers to enjoy whilst relaxing in our cinema seats or to take home from our bottleshop. Our breads are baked in house daily, and we a have a superb range of cured and cooked meats for sale from our deli counter, as well as locally sourced cheese from Devenick Dairy.
Pop in store to check out our selection of hand picked store cupboard products, from locally sourced oatcakes and olive oils to high quality Italian pastas and passata. Delve into our Gin Flights to get the opportunity to discover new gins or if you know what you like make your gin a large one in our big goblet glasses all served with a range of Fever-Tree Tonic. We try to source as much as we can from local suppliers and producers, we use the Bread Maker, Turriff’s Fruit & Veg, Barra Berries and Devenick Dairy to name but a few.
Note: We do not accept booking for drinks ONLY.
Was fuming to have received a reminder confirmation email to go to the Deli to find it not only closed but had ceased trading. I would have thought management would have at least contacted to advise that the deli had ceased trading! For all the people who booked a table! Not only that but was meeting a friend and had paid for parking so had to go locally for lunch! In my opinion the Deli was the best venue. When we went to the café the door was wedged open and I was frozen and my toastie went cold very quickly and it was like eating a cold sandwich.
We were served a burnt quiche, an open sandwich which was meant to be deli style shaved ham, I was expecting maybe prosciutto but it was literally chopped up bits of what looked like cheap processed ham something I wouldn't eat. Our coffees were boiling hot too, need staff to be barista trained? Standard is slipping.
Cognito were kind enough to host a private function for our work night out. The food, drink and service were all brilliant. Cant recommend them enough. Thanks for hosting.
Nice place to meet friends for a casual lunch. Soup and open sandwich, lovely. Tables themselves quite small so not a lot of space when everyone has food and drink.
Have been here a few times and this visit was slightly disappointing. 4 in our party and 2 had the scrambled eggs which were very dry, one person left most of them. Coffee was too hot and was likened to drinking hot milk. Also table was uneven and made it difficult to cut our food without an incident. We did mentioned all of the above to the staff and did get an apology but no offer to reduce the bill due to some of the food not being eaten and most of the coffees were not drunk.
To be honest, the plates were too small and the food kept falling off th plate awful mess, the eggs were over seasoned. The tea needed two tea bags to make it palatable and if the waitress managed a smile it might have been a good experience. Overall quite poor I am afraid.
Food as always was great and good value. My first lunch time visit so it seemed quieter than usual, not much atmosphere. There were unpacked boxes of stock lying open at the bar for the 2 plus hours were there, which didnt look very nice especially as we were at the table directly facing it. The service was good, but sporadic. Had to wait ages for table to get cleared and had to approach the bar myself for another round of drinks.
Have been to Cognito several times and had a great time. This time, although the food was good and when we got it, the service was ok, we did feel a bit unwelcome. The table was booked for 2030 and one staff member spent the entire time tidying up to close. The counters were all empty by 2100 and although we were planning to have some more food, we decided not to because it had all been taken away. I know you close relatively early, so tidying up much before that really eats in to your time and experience
We had an absolutely wonderful time, just drinking wine and sharing a cheese board last night. It was the perfect getaway from the crowded restaurants in town. And we really loved the cosy, industrial-chic atmosphere - a welcome departure from the ikea-esque feel of a lot of the cafes around. What we were most impressed with, however, was how reasonable everything was priced! For less than a tenner, we had an exquisite cheeseboard, and with all the change to spare we managed to work our way through several wonderful glasses of red on the wine list. The staff were so attentive, too. Just an all around wonderful evening! Thank you!
Nice atmosphere, good food Lunch time visit alas no cocktail
Have visited Cognito numerous times, and never disappoints! Have booked an evening table to try the fondue for our next visit
Celebrated my husband’s special birthday with friends and family......Cognito Deli was the perfect place. Beautifully decorated, first class service, delicious food, drinks and of course the amazing gins! Can’t thank Nicky and her staff enough for making it such a memorable evening. Highly recommend Cognito Deli for a private party.
Fab night, great choice of gins and breads and cheeses in a lively chilled atmosphere. Very relaxing evening.
Ordered the open ham sandwich, when it came it was chunks of ham with what looked like a lump of cheese stuck on top. Nothing like how it was describe in the menu.
Lovely lunch at Cognito Deli. Amazing meat & cheese platter! Great selection of gins too.
Week day drinks and food with friends. Excellent Gin list try the Doubles. Limited food menu in the evening more sharing platters than main courses. Cheese fondue is yum.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere, team were well knowledged on their range of gins and were friendly and helpful. Great place to relax over tasty 'nibbles' and drinks.
Absolutely brilliant place staff are a credit to the place
