The Abbey

We are a Coffee, Art and Music Lounge here to serve and love our local Santa Cruz Community.

The Abbey began with a vision to create a common space for people from the larger Santa Cruz community to connect, study, and hangout, all while enjoying fantastic coffee and a variety of musical and artistic expressions. And so, in 2008, the Abbey Coffee, Art & Music Lounge was born.

About Our Location

Our hope is that students, professionals, and families alike will all feel welcome to spend time in our space. We offer a large indoor and outdoor space with plenty of room for people to spend time in and we have free internet available.
