Experience this dynamic restaurant on awesome Robson street
COMFORT + COOKERY + COFFEE
ABODE Restaurant & Coffee Bar is a Modern Comfort Food Restaurant, Coffee Bar and Cocktail Bar inspired by the clean lines of mid century design and the concept of comfort food but in a modern context. We are on the sunny side of Robson Street with a sidewalk at the centre of Downtown Vancouver immediately adjacent to one of the most exciting shopping districts in Canada.
At ABODE we look to create dishes that evoke a sense of connection to the things that make us feel warm and connected. Our menus foster connections to dishes that we can all relate to, but add a modern twist using fresh, healthy ingredients locally sourced and made in-house where possible. ABODE offers high quality coffee and teas, milkshakes, artisan handcrafted cocktails, wines on tap to compliment our modern comfort food. Healthy and tasty choices providing a taste of all the things that make British Columbia and Vancouver so beautiful and heart warming.
With ABODE situated in the lobby of the Blue Horizon Hotel, we provide hotel guests with the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning when they came down from their rooms. Our artisan style coffee house is perfect for locals on Robson to hang out. ABODE offers Elysian espresso coffee beans and The Tea Guy teas, both of these companies being local and provide the highest quality hot beverage items. Our in-house pastry chef makes a fantastic selection of tasty pastries, a blender bar with milkshakes and healthy smoothies daily. And our Out N’ Abode Picnic Program is also being developed in the Spring of 2014 to provide picnic options to go for any occasion including: a day trip to Whistler, a walk to the beach, a cozy night at home with a date or a hike up one of Vancouver’s incredible hiking trails.
Our ABODE cocktail bar is directly connected to our Coffee Bar. The combination of the great espresso beans and blended teas from the Coffee Bar added to a signature cocktail list, 8 wines and 4 beers on tap plus a nice selection of wines by the bottle on the ABODE Cocktail Bar provides guests with a great range of options. You could have a milkshake with a shot of Bailey’s, a smoothie with some vodka, a Rootbeer Float with Bourbon … OR you could have a whisky sour, a Grey Goose martini or any other classic cocktail you can come up with. Our wines on tap are all from British Columbia and our 4 beers on tap focus on local craft beers. We also have a selection of beers and wines by the bottle to round out the mix. Sit at the bar, in our lounge or on the 42 seat patio and enjoy a cocktail, wine or beer of your choice. We are open from noon to 10pm every day.
We love design and all things modern but in creating ABODE we also wanted comfort and to make our guest feel warm and invited. We are not about pretense or trying to impress. Our guests are our first priority and their comfort and care is of the utmost importance. Creating a variety of seating options depending on the mood all with comfort was also a priority. In our modern world guests have less structure in their food and beverage options. Some just want a drink. Some want a drink and a small plate. Some want a coffee and dessert. Some want a homemade meal that fills them up and makes them feel cared for.
At ABODE, we have crafted a platform that can adapt to the various needs of our guests all while making them feel connected and nurtured. The décor is inspired by the simple lines of mid century design. Warm tones of walnut and calcutta marble, lots of banquets, communal tables and great uninterrupted views of Robson Street and a fabulous sunny patio. Sophisticated but understated, luxurious but not pretentious, warm and inviting not cold and stark. Those were our priorities in creating the ABODE design. After all, it is all about COMFORT and our guests. Welcome to your new ABODE.
