Café Abantu opens

The well-loved Stickybeaks closed its Hobson Street doors in January this year, making way for another popular local café to pitch up in its place.

Now it’s the turn of Café Abantu, a name you may recognise if you’ve visited Wysing in Bourn, where Abantu has long been delighting visitors to the arts centre with their tasty treats. Helmed by owner Wendy Slade, Abantu is relishing its new city centre location; a bright and airy space filled with fresh flowers, smiley staff and colourful crockery – and of course delicious things to eat and drink.

Towering Victoria sponges, fluffy scones, irresistible choccie cakes and other homemade bakes occupy the well-laden counter, begging to be washed down with a steaming cup of coffee or tea. If you’re after something a little more substantial, there’s ciabattas, salads, arancini and hot meals like lasagne to enjoy too.
