I have been stalking Flora and Fauna Cafe on Instagram for months now.
Their food creations and floral decorations are such a delight to look at – that my heart goes into an excited flutter every time I see one of their photos pop up onto my feed!
Anyway, I finally popped in with a girlfriend to try it out and it was just lovely. They specialise in super healthy, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free breakfast/brunch/lunch dishes.
We ordered two dishes to share, plus a coffee for me and a juice for my friend.
First dish was a Green Tea Granola ($20), which they make themselves.
The serving was huge, topped with a variety of fresh fruit, flowers and served with your choice of milk (I chose almond).
It was delicious, crunchy, and fresh. I could taste the green tea, and all the glorious seeds and nuts. But there was a strong flavour of almond essence or organic syrup (I’m not sure!) it was just a touch over-powering because I don’t usually like almond essence.
Nonetheless I happily gobbled up my share. The fruits were so yummy!
Our second dish was the Heirloom Bruschetta ($19) featuring 3 kinds of tomatoes, gluten free bread, avocado, greens and a sprinkle of feta.
The tomatoes were just lovely, sweet and mellow (not too sour, not too tangy or acidic).
I was absolutely blown away by how delicious this dish was. It was truly bursting with flavour!
I would order this again. In fact, I would take someone special (like my husband) to this cafe and order this for him.
I’ll definitely be back :)
Great: Amazing food, styling, gorgeous cafe decoration, great coffee.
Not-so-great: Price (this cost us $50 exactly), limited seating, no bookings, most of the tables were outside.
