After Thoughts is a lovely place to go for coffee and a piece of cheese cake or cake. But it also does lovely lunch selections. Great service but the lines can be long and there isn't a lot of seating. They also have a great selections of teas to serve or boxes to go. Try their Italian Sodas.

This is a wonderful place to hang out. A fantastic variety of coffees cold and hot. A great selection of food to eat. If you want a little place to sit and enjoy a visit with friends, this is the place to go. I enjoy it here very much.

Visited Afterthoughts twice during our visit to Abbotsford. Excellent desserts and awesome decaf coffee. Tried the Blackberry Apple Pie and the Banana Cream Pie, both were excellent. A must to try if you like coffee and dessert.

Use to come here quite often, but their customer service began to waiver but I put up with it because the desserts were quite nice. But then their quality began to tank, seemed like the desserts weren't fresh and pie crusts were hard and desserts lacked flavour. Afterthoughts feels like the Titanic, they started out grand and have since smashed... More

Mu husband and I went there for our anniversary for dessert. I enjoyed my blueberry cheesecake and mocha latte. However, my husband's German cheesecake was a little different than he expected, although he liked it. There wasn't really any chocolate in it which he thought it would have. The prices are fairly expensive. The servers were quite attentive.

Ok atmosphere, nice quality of food, but there was a disappointing lack of variety in the products, not even close to as many kinds of cheesecake as advertised. The quality-price ratio is ok, not the friendliest staff though.

Afterthoughts is the place to go for the best desserts in town. Cheesecakes are their specialty but there are many other choices such as cakes and pies. They also have light lunch/dinner choices such as soup and sandwiches. Their coffee is good and they have many tea selections as well. If you want a cold drink, have an Italian Soda.

The food here is great. The cheesecakes are the best & I love the Italian sodas. The portion sozes are good & so are the prices. The only down side is that none of the staff are ever happy. They always seem miserable or moody to me.

Thank Elyssia98
