Reviews for Abode Cafe
22nd May 2013
You have all the right ingredients for a great cafe but you have to serve great coffee to keep me going there. This has proved very up and down and my last visit the coffee was just not up to par. Shame as environment is so good.

Went to Abode for brunch today with a friend. I found the staff helpful and friendly. We both got the big breakfast and everything was lovely. Although I would have preferred a fresh hollandaise rather than a store bought, but it was still nice.
I would go back for sure.

hi! i booked a high tea for my mum’s birthday treat. we were 30 m late, but our table was still ready for us when we arrived. The table was beautifully set, and we were treated like princesses. Service was great, food loverly, tea fine and live acousitc guitar music made the finishing touch. Would love to go again, and am recommending to friends. thank you!

I booked High tea here for a Sunday afternoon treat for my partner and I. I could not have been more disappointed!! My partner (born and bred English) asked for English breakfast tea but was given Lady grey. Which took half an hour to arrive. Partner not happy. It was a down hill ride from there. The food was shocking which i presume were leftovers from the catering side of abode. The tables were far too close together. Hearing my partner was difficult as we were stuck between tables of pensioners. The concept of a dainty high tea in a ‘modern’ white building was absurd. Ghastly metal tea pot/jug and English pottery….not something i would consider traditional. All and all it was terrible. I just regret not walking out as soon as we arrived.

A lovely place. Always a yummy cabinet and the slices are to die for (especially the brownie – I think it’s the best I’ve ever had!) Great little playhouse to keep the kids occupied while I read the paper and enjoyed my beautifully made ripe coffee. Clean and friendly service. Will be back.

Great setting – shame about the service and the coffee. Appears like a great place especially if you have children in tow – but the service is just appalling, have never come across such rude cafe staff. The coffee was insipid & bitter & the food average and overpriced. Would never go back.

Booked ‘High Tea’ but was disappointed. Compared to other ‘High Tea’ environments priced at $25 per head this didn’t meet what I expected.
The tea cups were lovely but the stainless steel tea pot didn’t fit the image. Limited choice of tea you could have either Eark Grey tea or English tea, ours arrived stone cold, but it was replaced by a hot pot. We could see other tables that had cute tea cosy’s and it would have been nice for all tables to have them.
The food arrived, we didn’t receive any information about what we were eating – but it was nice, simple slices, scones and club sandwiches.

Expensive coffee, badly made by a rude barista in a noisey environment. Won’t be going back here in a hurry!
