History

The ABC Cafe opened in Geelong in December 1913 at a time when only a handful of such establishments existed. Newspaper articles at the time report that it was built almost exclusively from Geelong sourced materials, and by Geelong tradespeople.

Tragedy struck during construction when a plasterer fell from a scaffold to their death.

The cafe was expanded with a second level added in 1927.

The Geelong Heritage Centre holds a dinner set from the cafe in its collection. You can also see several photos of the ABC cafe here:
