We worked with Vancouver based design studio @andrea_mclean to create a warm and welcoming space for our guests. They specialize in modern residential homes, interiors and landscapes. Their thoughtful attention to our space included a site visit to touring the local downtown to really understand and vibe within our uniquely charming downtown Abbotsford. ⠀ ⠀ The 3D tiles by @mutinaceramics are a subtle nod to the texture of a waffle cone. Mismatched stone table tops are smooth and almost cold to the touch. The custom made benches are natural Western Maple and beautifully crafted by our neighbors @bathbuiltfurniture and warm toned lighting keeps the space cozy even into the cooler evenings + months. ⠀ ⠀ We can’t wait to be clearing your tables, wiping up ice cream drips from first time cone eaters and mopping the floors from all your beautiful footprints coming through. Honestly, we can’t wait ✨ #thefraservalley #vancouverinteriors #fraservalleyfoodie
The establishment is open every day from 2 to 10 p.m.
It’s the second ice cream shop to open up recently in downtown Abbotsford, with Banter at Jubilee Park opening in late-July. For more information, visit the lounge’s website at restaurantji.com/bc/abbotsford/common-good-ice-cream-lounge.
