Australian meets South American coffee-house and kitchen in the heart of Covent Garden and the theatre district, serving specialty coffees and teas, and an all day menu of organic, farm to table, homely meals.

Amidst the bustle of the city it is a haven of calm with its warm earthy colours and materials. Take a seat in the cosy sofa corner or at the 'kitchen table' and connect with friends and strangers alike.

The name 'Abuelo' meaning 'grandfather' in Spanish relates to theme of 'family and home', in the same vein the main room is an interpretation of a home dining room - with the handwoven Argentinian rug running under the large dining table surrounded by antique spindle chairs and bookended by the timber fireplace. When you come to Abuelo you are sitting at our kitchen table and we hope that you feel as at home at ours as you would at your own.

Coffee made by Australians - thank the lord! It is the best in the world!
The food is limited but good but the room is tiny, you are basically sitting in a cafe and the table is a big shared table.

The food was lovely and so were the staff but it was chaotic at lease at lunch time when I went. The service was therefore slow. I would only go there when I have a lot of time.

The main seating area is a big communal table so not really for a good catch up chat with a friend or romantic meal with your partner...

What a lovely place, with amazing staff, and innovative super yummy food choices. I want to have their ginger honey tea every day, the lamb dish was insane and the chai cake with poached pear to die for!

Great coffee! Beautiful room and very friendly service. Food we had could be improved upon in terms of taste, but it was beautifully presented.

Very tasty food and nice atmosphere but it’s quite small and there was a very loud group on the sharing table who ruined the vibe a bit. Apart from that can’t fault it!

Lovely cafe just around the corner from Covent Garden plaza. Pretty, cosy, and food is both beautiful and delicious. Good vegan options too. It's small, so be warned/ book ahead, but charming. Service was friendly and attentive too. Would go back again.

Communal seating so arrive early if you want the perfect corner seat or to sit side by side. The food was brilliant. Blackened rice was unbelievably tasty and the staff and coffee were equally lovely. Managed to resist a slice of the (very beautiful) cakes but will definitely be back. Really tasty, healthy, gorgeous food in a chilled, homey environment.
