Flora Social Eatery is equipped with individual spaces, community tables, and even boardrooms that can be accessed inside for those who need a co-working space. They also started to open their social hub last month for locals who need a space for getting their project off the ground or growing their business.

The social hub will be available for a variety of uses, including arts & crafts, yoga/pilates, support groups, women’s and men’s circles, sound healing, networking groups, aromatherapy, pottery, agricultural programs, and more.

Sustainability is crucial to this cafe, and this can be seen in its commitment to growing leafy greens and herbs in its small urban farm. The menu changes according to what’s in season and available, but you can expect to enjoy South American flavours, European cuts and classic Australian dishes at Flora Social Eatery. 

The cafe bathes in natural light, thanks to the giant windows. It features an atrium-style dining room with tables, chairs, and couches, much like Central Perk, that iconic coffee house in the TV series, Friends.

Signature menu items include the Gulf Prawn Benedict, Flora’s Tacos, and Big Matt’s Breakfast, which is an egg dish with bacon, chorizo, potato hash, mushrooms, and tomato relish. As for drinks, they serve coffee from Melbourne’s Roasting Warehouse, available in two blends– dark and strong or rich and chocolatey.

For everyone’s safety, Flora Social Eatery encourages guests to use their sanitiser stations at each entry, check-in for contact tracing, and practice social distancing.
