an urban oasis in the buzzing heart of south yarra — enjoy our seasonal menu in a serene environment that brings the outdoors-in.

"Abacus Bar & Kitchen is a cafe concept that could and should be replicated and enjoyed all around the world.

It has embraced the 'all day dining' model with a breakfast menu that transforms into snacks and evening dining making it an option for any mood or customer. It also has a fully licensed drinks list and al fresco seating to suit the late afternoon Aperol spritz while people watching as one of Melbourne's busiest strips passes you by.

All of this inside one of Melbourne's best interior spaces, Abacus provides a casual dining experience to remember.

The food is good and honest, it has broken out of the traditional mould for opening hours, the customer service is elevated, sustainability is deeply rooted in their ethos and it's a design-driven space that you want to be in. These business characteristics harmoniously work together and the success of them shows in the lines of people waiting for tables to enjoy a meal here."
