1. Flowers in the window
Frequenters of JB might know about Roost Juice Bar, the cafe that serves up some amazing frozen yoghurt and, of course, juices. Well, the owners of Roost have opened up a new cafe just a few doors down. Enter Flowers in the Window. Filled with hanging plants and plush sofas, the cosy cafe is just as Instagram-worthy as its sister joint, if not more. Their menu boasts some exquisite concoctions, like rosemary, raspberry, chilli and lemon infused syrup, and the food is just as delectable. If you’re planning on making a trip down, it’s probably best that you go early. The cafe tends to fill up towards midday because, like us, people just can’t seem to get enough of it.

The cafe is big on horticulture, with potted plants impressively arranged along the perimetre their perimeter. What does that mean for you? You won’t just have pretty and appetising food to tempt your Instagram followers with, but pretty backdrops that will give you inspiration for your home too.

3. Coffee Signature
You’ve probably seen pictures of their signature coffee that created quite a storm on social media last year. If you haven’t, allow us to formally introduce you to their incredible invention: the “Sweet Rain”. What is it, you ask? Well, dear readers, prepare yourselves: A fluffy, delicious cloud of cotton candy “hovering” atop your piping hot cup of coffee. The cotton candy will then melt into your coffee – literally sweet rain drops that serve as your artfully-crafted sweetener. The rest of the menu is worth exploring as well, with just as many rave reviews for their cakes, so go as a group to sample as many options as possible.
