“Not horrible but not spectacular either”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

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 desserts and perhaps the other choices are better. Personally I would go to Roasted Grape for better ambiance (although less selection for dessert).

“dessert destination”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

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 dessert!

“Disappointed Regular”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

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 to friends and family visiting from out of town, the commercial, almost cake mix quality of this once venerable eatery is one I will now avoid.
