Definitely worth a special trip. Food was so yummy. My pal’s ‘super fussy coffee order’ was made to perfection. It was a very busy morning, but all staff were friendly, helpful & just looking like they love their jobs. Also made us feel welcome to...stay as long as we wanted after we were finished. Table service! Which is a huge bonus these days. Bircher museli (pictured) was yummy & original. Hidden gem in suburbia. Will definitely be back.More

Whenever I'm in this part of town I head to Abode. The food always tastes great and you can tell a lot of care has gone into them. Recommend the Mince on Toast. So good!

Disappointing experience maybe because I arrived at 1.30...closing 2pm the staff were busy with other jobs and distracted...my first experience here...I asked for gluten free options -a soup of the day?...nothing...I was hungry so I settled for the quiche and just scooped the egg top...off...it arrived cold plonked on a plate no accompaniments, no relish...I was quite surprised at the small size lonely on the plate and lack of presentation...I asked was some relish available and after several minutes my reheated quiche arrived back ...the almond coffee was good.More

Whilst a little small and simplistic in space, the staff are friendly and have a short menu but what is delivered is quality and in a friendly demeanour. Worth a visit.

We found it by mistake after turning down a one way street with a rubbish truck behind us and unable to turn back as you do. A delightful little oasis with outdoor tables superb coffee and friendly service . Attached is a little store that...foodies would go crazy in , say no more , go and see it for yourself. We had breakfast which eggs served on sourdough with avocado . Lovely experience !!!More

All day breakfast and lunch from 11.30am this sweet little restaurant offers fresh, healthy, wholesome food. The in store homemade jams are a plus too. Friendly staff with great outdoor seating

This place was a delight! Check it out but don't do what I did, and order a small coffee only to realise it's darn good - so you have to order another.
