Flower shop or vegetarian coffee shop?
Peonies gets serious points for originality: a florist meets Château d’Eau coffee shop concept store. Sip on your organic matcha green tea, eat 100% vegetarian food and leave with a bouquet of flowers when you’re done.
The place is beautiful and airy, complete with emerald tiles, designer lamps, terrazzo-style tables, an Ines Longevil painting and blush-coloured walls. Have your Instagram at the ready for their avocado toast, homemade granola (with fresh fruit) and gluten-free cake – all very simple and tasty, but a little pricey for the area: an avocado toast alone is €8.50.
And while owner Clementine Levy may serve delicious coffee, flowers are her real passion; wild varieties especially.Levy produces bouquets in her workshop daily – dahlias, mimosas and camomile abound – all available with the €19 set menu. It’s just a shame the price range and choice of flowers are so restrictive – otherwise we’d have left with our arms full.
