La Fantaisie
Housed in a two-storey Victorian building in the heart of Abbotsford, La Fantaisie artfully
combines florist, Cafe & restaurant and function spaces into a welcoming and tactile proposition.
Embracing a layered approach to materials, the venue reflects the beauty and fragility of the
historic site. Burnished concrete floors, exposed-truss ceilings, raked render and troweled
brick walls create a textural backdrop, drawing focus to the striking articulation of floristry
and café benches. Custom carved from solid blush-toned marble, the bench’s scalloped
profile is a creative hallmark of the space, complemented by linen drapery and tiered flower
displays that define a series of dining settings in timber and cognac leather. Upstairs, a
brass-lined cocktail bar and open function room craft a captivating setting for special events.

Staff were welcoming and accommodating...we asked to move tables and they arranged. Food has slight twists on traditional cafe offerings and was very tasty. About 23-28 per meal but worth it. Good sized coffees too!

Looked beautiful but lacking in flavour. However The avo on toast was delicious! A combination of fruit and avo on toast which I thought would taste strange but it was nice and refreshing. We also got seated next to the front door… was a cold day so was not very pleasant . Chia latte was average. Had worse, had better.
