Meet Colleen! She owns and runs Chai Rock Cafe in Downtown Abbotsford. They have been open since 2019 and although they recently underwent a name change, the cozy atmosphere and great drinks have stayed the same. 

Colleen cares the most about her customers’ comfort so she has created a cozy environment and wants everyone to feel welcome. Now that dining indoors has resumed there are big comfy chairs to kick up your feet in and lots of room to spread out you won’t want to leave. 

Using a signature blend of her own spices, she has concocted her own recipe for chai tea, and is the number one thing she recommends to customers old and new. 

COVID-19 has been a challenge for any business to deal with, let alone a restaurant that just opened, but she is optimistic and thanks all her new and continued customers. 

Colleen is a true supporter of local artists. Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the cafe was always hosting local musicians to perform for evening jam sessions. For the visual arts, Colleen adorns her cafe with paintings from local artists, some just for show, but the majority are available to purchase with all the proceeds going back to the artist. 

Find them on 33775 Essendene Avenue.
