Taste at the Forefront; Not an After-thought

This is a very popular restaurant in the heart of Abbotsford off South Fraser Way. It is more of an evening, coffee and desert place but also caters to those who like a light lunch (sandwiches, salads, soups). The food is very good; the service is good but largely delivered through lining up at the... read more

Good service and terrific desserts made Afterthoughts a nightly visit for us during our visit to Abbotsford. Our only lament was that we didn't get to try all the different cheesecakes before we had to leave *laugh*. I also enjoyed the tea and coffee selection.

Have been here many times and am always been satisfied. I usually have a cheesecake and a coffee and I keep coming back so yes I think they are great. Lunch sandwiches are delicious too. A hole in the wall type location In a strip mall along South Fraser Way but worth the effort to get there.

Our favourite dessert place we have ever been to. All the homemade cakes and pies are to die for. They also have an excellent selection of beverages from coffee drinks to the teas. It is a go to place in the evening. If one thing could be changed, it would be for more comfortable chairs, maybe a renovation. But everything... More

We did not eat in the restaurant, but my sister ordered cakes for her daughters wedding and OMG - the cakes were outstanding! I live 6 hours away, but would absolutely order one for myself next time I traveled to Abbotsford. The Tiramisu (sp?) especially was to die for! I don't know anything about the pricing etc or the restaurant... More

If you are in need of a desert fix highly recommend after thoughts wide selection of cakes, pies and cheesecakes and who doesn't love cheesecake. They have some side dishes as well if you craving a bit more like pasta salad. But I am defiantly more for the sweet tooth fix. Highly recommend!!

My wife and I went to afterthoughts to pick up 2 slices of cheesecakes and once we saw how small they were we needed to buy 3 because they were so small! Once they got the cheesecakes packed up the total was 16.82! and all 3 cakes were literally like eating one real slice of cake somewhere else. Ill never... More

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
