Absolute Abode is a home furnishings store and cafe on Coombe Lane in the bustling commuter area of Raynes Park in SW London, near the train station. On a sunny day you can enjoy an Al fresco breakfast or lunch on the pavement in continental style.
I opted for a homemade cheese and ham “toastie” made with emmnental and a really well cured ham. This was served with a side order of fatoush; one of a choice of three salads. Their fatoush is an aromatic mix of cucumber, red onion, red, yellow and green peppers, celery, tomato with chopped mint and parsley is delicious and an amazing colour too!
These guys are also serious about their coffee! They offer a choice of 2 blends, from Alchemy Coffee in South Wimbledon, Opus and Elixir. Opus is 100% Guatamalan with Elixir 75% Ethiopian and 25% Guatamalan. I went for my usual Flat Whiteb with the Elixir blend, which has notes of chocolate, hazelnut and redcurrant.
And if you’re feeling really decadent they do a huge range of homemade cakes and tray bakes!
