There aren’t many coffee shops where you can buy a delicious latte and an adorable plant to take home with you. This cute Succulent Cafe in southern California combines two of the best possible things - coffee and plants.
You’ll be surrounded by living art pieces in this fairytale open-air cafe. There are more than three hundred living art pieces made from succulents throughout the shop and plenty of cute wooden benches and tables to sit at outside.
All around you, there are rows of succulents, cacti, and other small desert plants. It’s all so lush and green.
You can pick a plant (or two) to take home with you. Tbh, it’s hard to leave without an armful of cute plants! There’s plenty of different colors, shapes, and sizes to choose from.
You’ll find everything from floral looking pieces to other-worldly alien-looking ones. The owner, Pete Loyola, constantly challenges himself to come up with cool, new ideas for plant arrangements.
You can order your coffee and take it out by the beautiful water fountain or cozy up by the fire pit. If you’re not in the mood for coffee, there’s also smoothies, tea, and pastries you can order.
Everywhere you look, there are beautiful plants growing in quirky containers, old tennis shoes tied to the walls, and warm light provided from hanging lanterns.
If you and your BFFs are looking for a cozy coffee spot, this is the place. You can even bring your furry friend!
If you’re looking for unique places in SoCal to spend an afternoon, you don’t want to miss this hidden gem. You can get your caffeine and plant-lover's fix all in one stop.
