Once solely an online store, local plant nursery Epilo has moved into a permanent physical space in Woolloongabba, combining caffeination and plant purchasing to create the perfect weekend hangout. Inside a large warehouse-style space is a jungle of healthy potted plants, while a coffee counter provides the drinks and snacks.
Order up a coffee, chai tea, milkshake, fruity iced tea or beetroot latte along with a sweet treat and you can take it up to mezzanine seating area overlooking those lush plants. Thirst sated, you can spend your time browsing the monsteras, calatheas and ficuses to find the one new plant baby you just have to take home with you, along with a new woven basket to put it in.
