Coffee and more at Bonsai Botanika
Hanh Nguyen | On 03, Aug 2016
In a city full of modern cafes with simplistic design, Bonsai Botanika offers coffee lovers a little more than just sugar on the side.
The interior of Bonsai Botanika is similar to taking a peek in the past, into a vintage bakery or butcher’s shop. Displays of bread, produce, hanging meats, and slouching sacks of flour are just some of the dÃ©cor that fills the cosy surrounds. Large hanging baubles of light guide your way from the cafÃ© on the ground floor to the bar upstairs, or if you prefer a higher perch, the extra seating area on the third floor. The vibe is rustic but trendy, lending a feel that is organic and welcoming- just like the food and drinks on offer.
The Japanese influence also lends Bonsai its signature matcha cake, ramen and other delectable Japanese eats. Breakfast offerings include familiar options like poached eggs, sourdough, smoked salmon and the like, but there is also the unfamiliar presence of lentils, savoury pancakes and more.
Dinner service and a bar on the second floor ensures that the coffee you crave downstairs can be ordered from the AM through to the PM. Whether it is their popular chai lattes or their well-made green tea lattes, donâ€™t be surprised if you become a returning regular since Bonsai Botanikaâ€™s drinks garners rave reviews.
It is great to know you can wake up with a hot chocolate or end your evening with a strong spirit at Bonsai Botanika- their opening hours are an impressively simple “always”.
