selvatica, coburg north

And just like that, Mamma has a new favourite hang out! Selvatica is so many wonderful things rolled into one - a coffee roaster, a cafe, an indoor plant nursery and the staff are just some of the nicest peeps you’ll meet!

This is no ordinary nursery with a cafe thrown in as an afterthought, it’s a well considered space full of professionals doing what they do best - plants and coffee! It’s the perfect, friendly place for catch ups with kids and prams!

Located in a light-filled, converted warehouse you’ll find the choice of spacious indoor or outdoor seating, a cafe serving sweet treats and the best jaffles mamma has ever had and a beautifully lush, indoor-plant nursery with greenery galore - potted indoor house plants, hanging ferns, cute succulents, water features and eclectic and boutique pots to plant them in - after you choose your plants, the accomodating staff will pot them for you while you drink your coffee! And speaking of the coffee...

This place is the real deal when it comes to caffeine! The beans are carefully selected from sources like Central and South America and Ethiopia and roasted to perfection on site - there is a viewing window where you might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of this process (and a whiff of the delicious aroma!) Mamma likes to start with a strong flat white followed by a pour over/filter coffee to sip after her meal! The current favourite is an Ethiopian and Guatemalan blend. These delicious coffee beans are also available to purchase!

mamma's special mention:  On one magical day each week (Saturday!) Selvatica and Scavengers Warehouse right next door are both open at the same time! Make a morning or afternoon of it!

Go Climb is also a small stone’s throw away, keep adventuring, folks!
