Eat For Free at Tempo Aberdeen

We are loving the concept of Tempo, the new drop in centre in the Bon Accord Shopping Centre. It is somewhere to eat, drink and have time for you. Anything you eat or drink is free, you simply pay for the time you spend there, and the money goes to ARCHIE Foundation, the charity that supports ill children and their families.

Eat For Free Tempo Aberdeen

Tempo is located on the ground floor of the mall where you are greeted by a volunteer at the welcome desk. Here you will quickly register, then your time starts, at 10p a minute. You then simply find a space to suit you, from their deep relaxing armchairs to table and chairs. Then help yourself to reading material, games and something to eat and drink. You can even take your own lunch.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

Food ranges from breakfast cereals, lunch snacks such as hot soup, or treats like crisps, cakes and biscuits. There is also a range of soft drinks, tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

You do have to load up the dishwasher afterwards, but that only takes seconds of your time.

There is free super-fast broadband and plenty of charging points.

Then when you are ready to leave, you simply go back to the welcome desk, sign out, and pay for your time a lovely way to donation to this important charity which receives 100% of proceeds. The unit is rent-free and companies such as IKEA donated furniture.

All ages are catered for and made welcome, those aged under 2 years are free. There is an area for toddlers and children to play as well as quiet areas for grown-ups.

Tempo is open seven days a week from 8:30am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and from 9:30am to 5pm on Sundays.
