“Best Benny's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Although we didn't eat anything but breakfast here, it was so good we came back the next day. Why go anywhere else when you've found a really good place? Not only were the benny's good but the French toast was so light and fluffy and utterly delicious. This is a must try for anyone. You will appreciate the prompt and warm service.

“Great Breakfast location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Have the typical breakfast fare with some extra healthy choices. Excellent service, meals come out nice and hot and the surroundings are very modern. The prices are very resonable

Not too sure if we would eat lunch / supper there as tends to be a bit more eclectic than myself, but no doubt appeals to some. Check out the menu. They have a web site and free wireless as well.

“Short Rib Sandwich!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Wandered into this place on a business trip. Hadn't read a review in advance. The short rib sandwich was amazing. Oh so tender and tasty. Fries were standard. Also ordered the carrot and ginger soup. I liked it, especially because it wasn't too creamy and had some chunkiness too it. Waitstaff were friendly and earnest. I'd go back.

“Great pulled chicken sandwich & wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

As we were walking along Robson Street searching for a small cozy sidewalk cafe for lunch, Abode showed up at exactly the right moment! Our party of four was seated promptly and we first placed our orders for glasses of wine, two of us red and two of us white! We perused the menu and I chose the chef's pulled chicken sandwich with dried vine ripened tomatoes, house made dijon aioli, and fresh baby arugula on ciabatta. It was beautifully presented but needed just a tad more of the dijon aioli or such to give it some pizazz. Service was superb and it was a great place for relaxing and people watching. The menu was interesting and I heard that their breakfast at Abode is wonderful!
