Flower Café was ranked in the top ten of Inside Guide’s listings of the ‘hottest new restaurants in Cape Town’. Launched on 6 August 2020, Flower Café is a coffeeshop in Woodstock where you get to make your own one-of-a-kind flower arrangement, while sipping on barista-brewed coffee and nibbling on delicious homemade eats. From well-known florists, Petals Group, the venue is perfect for special celebrations, whimsical team-building experiences, or casual meet ups with friends.
“Like so many Cape Town businesses, we were scrambling to pivot our florals and events business during arguably the worst economic crisis our company has seen since we started it in 1967,” said the owner and founder of Petals Group, Flower Walker.
She added, “Then on a chilly day in July we sat down with our marketing consultant to thrash out ideas and the Flower Café was born!”
Flower Café hosts children’s parties, bridal and baby showers, corporate events and now welcomes their patrons to book Work Parties, too. With plenty of plug points and complimentary WiFi on offer, Work Parties are a fun way to work alongside and catch up with colleagues or freelancer friends in a creative and stimulating environment. As with standard Flower Café visits, Work Party guests are requested to book their spots ahead of time to help manage COVID-19 safety measures.
“With decades of experience putting bespoke events and florals together for a variety of clients, we are very comfortable creating customised Flower Café experiences for Capetonians looking for something fresh and beautiful,” said Veronica Yankelowitz, one of Petals Group’s event coordinators.
“While the events and weddings industry is only just starting to revive, we are extremely proud of our incredible staff who have navigated the challenges of starting a new business during a global pandemic in an inspirational way. We most certainly wouldn’t still be here without them,” she added.
Lisa Aspeling, owner of Anago Marketing and the marketing strategist for Petals Group, says the team has been overwhelmed by the public’s response to Flower Café, “Even since our pre-launch phase of introducing the café to the public we noticed how passionate people were about the concept.” She adds, “That’s when I knew we had hit on something special!”
After only being open since 6 August, the recognition from Inside Guide has come as a wonderful and welcome surprise to the whole Flower Café and Petals Group team.
