The hidden backyard garden café at Cluny Court is a sunroom-inspired space filled with various potted greens. Some of the best seats in the house are located underneath the skylight, dotted with overhanging air plants. Settle down outside to soak in the botanical charm of the café, or choose to head indoors (equally cosy) to escape the heat. The café is opened by the team behind Craftsmen Specialty Coffee and the espresso-based brews run the range from the classic flat white to cups of latte flavoured with coconut, macadamia nut, butterscotch, and more. Expect to tuck into the usual hearty selection of pasta, sandwiches, burgers, and meats.
It might be difficult to find pockets of green within our sprawling metropolis. On days when you’re just tired of facing the four walls, head out to these tranquil spots, surrounded by lush foliage and verdant greenery, instead. And no, you won’t need to put on your hiking boots to visit these places; these garden restaurants offer a green escape within our city that you can easily get to.
