Road leads to Abbey

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

NOT happy with just one café, chefs, busi­ness part­ners and friends Zac Phillips and Ryan Carey have repli­cated their Kirk­wood Deli con­cept in Ned­lands.

Abbey Road opened late last year and although a smaller ver­sion of the Swan­bourne eatery, the fo­cus is still on good cof­fee and ready-to-go meals.

“Ev­ery­one’s busy, it doesn’t mat­ter what age group you’re in… my three-year-old is busy,” Mr Phillips said.

“Ev­ery­one’s work­ing harder than they have be­fore but peo­ple still need to eat and are still health-con­scious.”

Abbey Road, a nod to Perth’s way of short­en­ing words (the café is on Aber­dare Road), ad­joins a deli and hair­dressers and, like Kirk­wood Deli, is in a res­i­den­tial neigh­bour­hood.

“There’s some­thing nice about be­ing with a group of shops,” Mr Phillips said.

The chefs spend most of their time prepar­ing the sin­gle-meal por­tions and food of­fer­ings, en­sur­ing Abbey Road co-owner and man­ager Melissa Hadley is fully stocked.
