A Combination of Floral Botanic and Decadent Cafe Food
There is a new child in town. Meet Flower Child Cafe which recently opened inside Chatswood Westfield, just above the Hawker's Lane food court. Already, it has established itself as a charming, popular but busy brunch spot.

Photogenic food!


I've been wanting to try this place and I finally found a valid excuse to visit when an international visitor dropped by. Immediately I suggested coffee at Flower Child Cafe.

Located within Chatswood Westfield Shopping Center


Flower Child Cafe has an exquisite menu offering uniqueness and deliciousness. Judging from the queue and the wait time, it seems that the North Shore people can't get enough of it.

Bringing in the light and natural greenery


The cafe looked quite ordinary when we were waiting outside, but once they invited us in, we discovered a beautiful eatery space with natural botanic plants hanging from ceiling above. I absolutely loved the unique greenhouse ambience and my friend perked up at the smell of delectable coffee scents wavering in the air.

Pretty wholesome food selections


The Flower Child offers a beautiful all-day breakie menu such as fruit salad, acai bowl, French toast, delicious suggestions with egg and a big-sized breakfast plate. There are more sumptuous lunch options such as prosciutto & asparagus soldiers, barramundi burger and smoked chicken salad. The diverse brunch and lunch menus are also available all day long and accommodate everyone's wants and desires.

Filtered Coffee - V60 Pour Over $7 (The V60 pour over filter method results in a clean cup with high clarity. This is a gentle method of brewing coffee aimed at highlighting the best characteristics of a particular coffee)


Despite the many tantalising choices, we made our decisions quickly. Service was friendly even with a full-house by 12:30pm on a wet weekend. We settled in with a V60 Pour Over filtered coffee. After a lengthy catch up and we drained the last drop of our coffee, but our food was no where in sight. Upon investigation, there was a slip up with our orders, so our happiness was delayed.

House cured Ocean Trout $21 (Folded eggs, compressed baby cucumber, goat curd, tomato & micro coriander salad, served on toasted sourdough)


A generous serving of folded eggs served on toasted sourdough bread, topped with house cured ocean trout, goat curd, baby cucumber and tomato salad finally made its appearance. My friend was indeed hungry and she attacked the dish with a voracious determination.

Fresh and vibrant


She concluded it was a lovely dish to have but she would enjoyed it a lot more if her meal came on time.

Flower Child French Toast $17 (Banana mascarpone, sliced banana, dark chocolate crumb, fresh berries and salted toffee)


My dish - the Flower Child French Toast, arrived soon after and it was an 'irresistibly naughty'' way to start the day. The sweet French Toast looked absolutely delicious! One look at this dish and I believe it will cheer up the grumpiest face in the world.

The drool-worthy presentation


I plunged into the large buttery soft French Toast topped with banana mascarpone, sliced banana, fresh blueberries, raspberries, strawberries garnished with dark chocolate crumbs and a splash of salted toffee sauce! The French Toast was beautifully sweet and fluffy. All the toppings blended in beautifully together to create a taste sensation. My friend tasted it and only one word escaped her mouth: "Wow!"

Sweet and flowers to brighten up my friend's day


All in all, our enticing lunch was filling, tasty and pretty to look at. I myself look forward to returning and sampling other breakfast and lunch offerings on a quieter weekday!

That French toast looks like one of the most indulgent I've seen. Sounds wonderful.
