Gastro Pub
We’ve blended boundaries through the collaboration of baristas, cooks and bartenders, each offering the best of their respective crafts to create dishes and drinks that are both dependably inventive and comfortingly familiar.
We’ve exposed brick walls and wooden ceiling beams, centered one of the largest outdoor seating spaces in the city around a swan fountain, and crowned the coffeehouse with a reclaimed church rose window restored as a chandelier.
We’ve created the Abbey to give a sense of place, the feeling that you’ve discovered something novel, yet close to home. We’ve brought together a coffeehouse, two bars, and a bistro all under a single roof. We're exploring the world of craft - come explore it with us.

Good food, good drink selection.
If I could recommend something, probably music playing through the restaurant. Otherwise it's a great atmosphere.

We absolutely loved the Abbey. Very cool ambiance/vibe. Feels like an English pub and there’s several rooms throughout the building (bar/coffeehouse/dining area). Our server was great and food was excellent! Highly recommend the pub chips appetizer. Delicious!

We had brunch at the Abbey on Sunday. My sister was in town visiting and we wanted to do something special. As always, the food was great and the service was good.

I had the veggie omelette which was plenty of food and delicious. My boyfriend and brother in law had the Corned Beef and Poached Egg breakfast sandwich. It was on a pretzel bun! And my sister had the Chicken and Biscuit sandwich. She said the chicken was amazing.

Not only was the food terrific but so were the drinks. My sister has a frozen coffee drink that was like a dessert. Yum.

I highly recommend brunch at The Abbey.

Atmosphere is cool and trendy. The food selection was a bit small. I wanted soup but they only had 1 choice for the day and I don't like chicken noodle. The cheese dip wasn't what I liked either but the butter nut squash ravioli was good

They had plant based options that were wonderful, and great tasting brunch drinks. The food was beautifully presented as well.

We were seated out on the enclosed porch and the additional heaters kept us warmed until the temperatures increased. Our comfort was continually monitored.
We were getting together to make plans for upcoming events for a singles group and we stayed well past the normal allotted time but we never felt like we were being rushed out.
Wonderful place!!!
Can’t wait to return
I’d also like to visit their coffee shop

Had a fantastic, romantic dinner in the back room under the awesome starry lightbulbs. Our server was adorable and on her game! It was my first time for dinner there, and I will definitely be returning.

Great experience, good service and food. I would recommend a private booth instead of a table where others are sitting right next to you. Also, this restaurant could do a better job of packing up your left overs. They literally placed mashed potatoes and gravy in a thin cardboard box with no lining.

We have been dining here roughly every eight weeks for about 30 months or so, mostly for lunch but occasionally dinner. We find the staff to be gracious and engaged, and that the kitchen consistently executes brilliantly on the menu's promise. We highly recommend this Butler Street eatery.

The decor in this place is very creative and fun. The wait staff works really hard to keep everyone happy. The food was very good. I had the house burger and the Caesar side salad. Both were very good.

Restaurant wasn’t busy, but we were seated in a room by ourselves even though there were only three of us. It felt empty and lifeless. Food was good overall, but not great. No off the menu specials. Waiter was fair, but not especially friendly. Cocktail was awful, but not replaced. Place is very cute and might have been better on another night.

Came here for brunch with my husband. Drinks and food were great. The service was outstanding. It’s a little bit of a tight squeeze at and between some of the tables, which wasn’t a problem for us but if you are a larger person or slightly claustrophobic, you might mention that when making your reservation so they can seat you accordingly. Will definitely be back!

New Years Eve but it was 4:30! Made the reservation online but they did not tell us the menu was set! The waitress could not answer most questions about the menu. It was just Ok for the price.

It was a crowded night and we were seated in a very private quiet section of the restaurant. The food was great, the service was efficient and we stayed till close.

Great setting and food was superb. Service was not helpful on guiding us (e.g. VERY sweet dessert that was not related to the name -- mint julep -- and that is the time that a good server steps in and guides while ordering. Otherwise, lovely!

I’m a weekly eater at The Abbey on Butler Street and all my experiences have been wonderful. Even if I don’t have a reservation they always accommodate. The food is superb, the servers are very attentive and the setting is very clean and welcoming. Both mine and my clients meal were great. I highly recommend the Chicken and Waffles.

We had a wonderful experience at the Abbey! The service was quick and the server was very friendly and welcoming. The food didn't take too long to make and was absolutely wonderful! We got steaks and they were cooked perfectly. The feel of the restaurant is super cool and cozy. Prices are reasonable as well, what you would expect to pay for a dinner out. Would definitely go there again and recommend to anyone considering it.

What a great place. Service and food is always great but yesterday they went out of their way to help us when a member of our party had a medical emergency. They packed our food up to go and helped us leave quickly. Every time we’ve eaten there the food and drink has been outstanding and their help yesterday made us lifelong customers.

We went for Sunday brunch. This place is so neat and the entire experience was great. Food was outstanding, drink prices were slightly higher than most brunch places but not to be unexpected. 10/10 will return!

Love the decor; service great and the food was okay; new-ish menu with good selections. Not my first visit to Abbey. Especially nice in the good weather when you can eat outside on the patio.
