Iwona Szmid always wanted to own a cafe – and she turned her big dream into reality in 2019 when she opened BioCafe on Rosemount Viaduct.
See how she got on in our round of quick-fire questions below.
What’s your customer icebreaker?
Nowadays, we have to get all the appropriate information for track and trace. We always try to be very friendly.
It’s the end of your shift – what do you pour yourself?
It would either be green tea or a chai latte.
If you were a drink, what would you be?
Probably a mojito – I love it and it’s very refreshing.
What would the theme song to your average shift be?
It would have to be a Christmassy song just now – something like Driving home for Christmas because everyone is missing home just now.
What’s in your drinks cabinet at home?
A lot of different teas.
Best food and drink pairing?
A half sweet, half savoury waffle served with a kombucha.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what drinks are there with you?
Lemon soda and a mojito.
You have to make a drink to represent Aberdeen. What would that be?
I’d make a pina colada. I don’t know why, but it’d have to be something sweet.
Your favourite superhero/celebrity is sitting at the bar. Who is it and what do you serve them?
I would serve Beyonce and Madonna our waffles and popular hot dogs.
