No matter whether you eat savoury or sweet, an Afterthoughts experience is always good. Lots of tables, and so many yummy choices. We've never been disappointed, in dozens of visits. And the prices are more reasonable than anywhere else!

Friends of ours suggested going to this place for the most amazing chocolate cake. So, we all went and the cake wasn't on display. There was an 'opera style layered cake' so we decided to have the Apple and peach pie and the carrot cake. Not impressive. The pie filling was hard and had no taste. The crust was not... More

My wife and I received gift cards for AfterThoughts for a wedding gift and after a particularly difficult day this week we decided to go cheer up with dessert. The girls were extremely friendly and well informed and led my wife piece by piece telling her what each was like. They also came by our table to find out how... More

I have long been a mocha fan, and just found the best cup I can remember at Afterthoughts Restaurant. The temperature and real whipped cream were just right, but the deciding factor was flavor that just grabbed my taste buds and "rassled 'em to the ground." I am going to re-check it soon, but both I and my buddy Murray... More

This place always has a great selection of desserts. My favourite is the vancouver cheesecake with raspberry and chocolate sauce. The mediterranean panini is excellent as well. The ladies that work there are so friendly and I enjoy chatting with the. Overall this is a great place for a coffee date or a place to pick up dessert and take... More

The staff are really nice, food is good but the ambience just isn't conducive to relaxation. Its in a good situation great parking. This café could be amazing if only they would bring in some comfy seating, people would linger and spend more $

I think this is a go to spot for Abbotsford because its one of the only options for desserts like these outside of a large restaurant. I find that things are presented well but that the taste is not there. People may like the size of their desserts but never once have I been overly excited by the taste. Appearances... More

I love a good dessert place, and seek them all over Vancouver, so when I heard about this, I was thrilled. It did not live to the hype though (and maybe because I am comparing to my favorite spots in Vancouver) - had carrot cake which was not bad, but a little pricey. They do have a large selection of...

Truly a decadent destination, huge selection of delicious desserts. I believe this place invented the scandalous 4 layer cake. Don't even get me started on the cheesecakes, always several choices. Everything from Quiche to Rice Crispy squares, all items being equally tasty. They also offer up specialty teas and coffees. The only place you should be going in Abbotsford for... More

Having been a weekly customer of After Thoughts for several years I am profoundly disappointed with the steady decline of the quality of both product and customer service in the past three months. The desserts lack the high standard this restaurant has become known for, and the customer service is best described as ambivalent. Once a destination I consistently recommended... More
