About Boardwalk Cafe & Games


The story of Boardwalk Cafe & Games

In the spring of 2016, owners, Darin and Gabby Graham, were presented with an opportunity to participate in a changing downtown culture of Abbotsford, BC. They saw the chance to create a place that would inspire community and face-to-face gathering through the medium of tabletop games and locally sourced food and drink. Finding a location in the Historic Downtown core of Abbotsford, they drew up plans to bring the Fraser Valley its first Board Game Cafe.

Boardwalk Cafe & Games is located in Abbotsford's first department store, Gosling's, in the Bishop Centre. With the original hardwood floors still underfoot, you'll be sure to feel connected to the history of Abbotsford while, seamlessly, playing a part in its future. With the help of over 110 friends, the Grahams successfully completed funding through Kickstarter to help bring the classic space up to modern standards.

On top of creating a space that encourages friendly collaboration and competition, they have also put together a crack team of board game enthusiasts to ensure that every guest has a brilliant experience. From well crafted coffees and teas, to locally sourced meats and cheese, their team will take care of everything you need, even suggesting a new game to try.
