Underneath the Royal Poinciana tree lies a hidden café with a hippie vibe and a one-of-a-kind setting. Magnolia Caffee is a vintage shop and artisan coffee house offering healthy bites and a dash of art for the avant-gardist soul.
One of their most unique recipes is the Kombucha Smoothie. It will be highly unlikely to find a unique drink like this anywhere else in the Fort Lauderdale area.
The small cafe sits about 20 people and it has an eclectic decor with vintage paraphernalia playing an ode to Disney culture. You will find mugs with your favorite Disney characters, an Oscar-inspired statue and other tchotchkes from those magical days of yesteryear.
Drinks are special at this cafe. The kombucha is handcrafted and mixed with strawberry, blueberry and banana.
The healthy menu consists of turkey and pesto panini, egg and avocado sandwich, avocado Caprese salad including other seasonal items such as the peanut butter banana coffee and blueberry buttermilk coffee cake made from scratch.
Even though the unusual trinkets are part of the decor, each item is for sale. The shop always receives donations and unique memorabilia that add a whimsical vibe to the cafe.
From the patio seating to the front walkway, the cafe is an invitation to an urban oasis where you can relax, work and have meaningful conversations with friends.
Magnolia Caffee is an indoor gallery mixed with homemade cuisine and antiques providing a place to escape the busy Las Olas streets and submerge in a world of wonder.
