No Pictures Please at The Plant Story Cafe

A nature hike from Clementi to the Tanjong Pagar district led the lioness and her two siblings, Kermit and Coconut, past The Plant Story galleria at HortPark with its pretty range of miniature gardens in jars (terrariums) of various shapes and sizes. They spotted a 'cafe' sign and ventured in to quench their thirst. Rocking chair, hammock, gazebo, indoor plants and an eclectic mix of rustic furniture made this an ideal spot to take refuge from the sun and while away some time. Too bad for the no picture-taking rule inside and the mediocre drinks (watered-down latte and pour-yourself-from-a-can root beer float). This cafe scores a perfect 10 for ambience so what a pity. We wish they would hire themselves a barista to complete the picture perfect retreat from the harried world outside.

You might like to check out their ongoing terrarium workshops and their upcoming Valentine's Day terrarium-making session for couples.
