Embodying old and new, Flovie incorporates both contemporary design with antique pieces. A large vintage cabinet is used for displaying fresh cut flowers and a German-made piano takes centre stage among hanging floral garlands and dried foliage. In their left corner, a curve wooden stair case leads you to the event and function space upstairs. High ceiling, two large rustic bronze crystal chandeliers and black and white French styling make it a perfect venue for your next private function or corporate event. Before you go my friend take a bouquet with you, for you never know who you may meet as you start your colourful journey. That is the proper way, the Flovie way, flowers and love. See me again, you’re always welcome at Flovie as we’ll always be early.

The smashed avo was quite bland. Additional ingredients like corn and edamame were unnecessary and didnt blend well with the rest of the ingredients. Waiter was rude.

Beautiful setting, good variety on menu and normal brunch prices. We weren’t told we only had a 1 hour booking until the 1 hour was up however which was a bit of a shame but the food and venue are fab.

“Early bird catches the worms” looking through pictures of the menu made me book a table immediately! If you love flowers, pretty looking place to eat and a aesthetic cafe.. this is the place! I fell in love with my breakfast and it took a while to eat because it looked pretty haha lol! But seriously, if you’re deciding to go. TRUST ME! You have to goo!! :)

The cafe name is a bit misleading: thought it was a florist AND cafe at the same time but turns out it seems like just a cafe! Whilst it may not be a great cafe to talk and converse with someone as it was difficult to, the ambience is general was really good.

The taste of the food could also be improved as currently, i only paid for the aesthetics of it more than its quality :)

Drinks and ambiance was nice. One server behind the counter was lovely. Particular male server we dealt with was unfriendly, and ignored us on multiple occasions. He provided poor quality service and appeared as though he didnt want to be there. Rose espresso drink was lovely, glasses were pretty, flower decor is nice, food is decent but not anything special. Nice experience, but would not go again.

I found the food lacked flavor and was poorly executed I'm terms of it's taste. The black squid rice had no flavor at all. The beef was dry. The drinks were lovely.
Overall looked better than it tasted

Had a great experience. We chose outside seating but wish we chose inside as that’s where the ambience was much nicer (and where many flowers were). Customer service was great - I wish I noted down her name, but one staff (short black hair, Asian background) was absolutely AMAZING. She was so friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. Honestly will be going back just because of how kind, friendly and personalised she was in taking our orders and giving her opinion on the most popular dishes (Will probably choose to sit inside next time though!)
I recommend the crispy eggs Benny- amazing. For drinks, while I ordered the promise blossom (for the coffee shot and looks), I preferred the summer sunrise instead (although this depends on your taste).
Beautiful place, I see why it is so spoken about now.

The food was very dry and very very average. They were short on plates and cups so the food and beverages came out at strange times often very late. The food was very over priced for what we had. The coffee was lovely though when it eventually came out. The waiter was very welcoming and very apologetic during service when items were missing from our table. My suggestion would be to buy extra cups and plates as we came at off peak at 3:30pm so surely I can imagine a stressful kitchen during peak service. Thanks

We had our booking for table of 2. The pink tea latte came with previous user lipstick stain (especially in COVID). We ordered extra toast with out big breakfast for which we paid $24, musrooms and spinach totally uncooked and the extra toast arrived after 40 mins and after 10 reminders and rest of our food was cold. Totally disappointed with the place and customer service.

Food and staff were amazing but our seats were not. The long table in the middle had stools instead of proper chairs which neither I or my friends liked and couldn’t swap tables since the other free table had a reservation too which doesn’t make sense as we too made a reservation so we should be able to choose where to sit or ask to be swapped

Hi Cindy, Thank-you for booking with us - we try not to sit any reservations on the communal table, and will work to be more flexible especially when table availability allows! We appreciate the feedback and look forward to seeing you again, - Flovie

We booked for 3.30pm, when the waitress came she told us the kitchen was closing in 5 min (this was not conveyed in the booking process). Drinks were good, food was okay, service was slow and a low sense of awareness in general from staff. The cafe itself was extremely photogenic and the drinks were very pretty. My experience is that it's an all looks and no substance cafe with food and service letting them down.

Flovie Florist Cafe
Responded on 5 December 2020

Hello, Thank-you for booking with us, Yes we take our last food orders at 3:45 so the kitchen may close, therefore we do inform all diners before this time so that your order may be prepared, however as you said we agree this should be conveyed during the booking process. We really appreciate this feedback - we will make the adjustments so that this is more clear, - Flovie management
