Footscray is one place that does have many gems in hiding. After visiting Small Poppies which is only located 2 blocks or so away from this cafe, this is another gem on the list if you do want a good drop of coffee in this suburb. This particular place is becoming a regular pit-stop for myself on my way to work. There have been a few changes since I have visited there over the past couple of months, but the coffee and atmosphere provided remains the same, or even better.
Whether you want a good drop of coffee, or to buy a lovely bouquet of flowers, Entwine is the place to be able to provide such service. The cafe has since downsized it's operations and only provide barista (coffee), tea and biscuits. When I first visited the florist, there was a selection of cakes and savoury treats provided, but as a cost cutting measure and focusing more on the florist operations and allowing the public to enjoy the atmosphere provided with the range of flowers and plants on display for your enjoyment and also the temptation to dig in a little deeper into your wallet or purse and purchase one, two or more.
I found the service to be quite friendly and quite adequate considering the demand to be able to handle customers that are there to purchase their primary source of income, ie: flowers. A selection of locally made teas is also provided, and can also be purchased from the cafe counter.
Overall I do recommend for anyone to visit this lovely cafe/florist and take the time to appreciate what it has to offer.
