News » 24.09.2021 - First floral-themed cafe in Mumbai will star flowers imported from Thailand
To add to Mumbai’s unmatched culinary scene is a unique eatery called Plush Cafe. This cafe is set to serve breakfast, brunch, and lunch to its patrons soon. Founded by 22-year-old Palak Shah, along with her partner Mazhar Dalvi, it is located in the heart of Bandra and is the city’s first floral-themed cafe.
The decor of the eatery boasts of flowers that have been specially imported from Thailand. Apart from the interiors, a lot of effort has been invested in every aspect of the cafe — from the unique cutlery to the specialty coffee selection.
Shah said, “We have relentlessly worked for about 14 hours a day for the last one year to put this place together. Plush means posh yet minimal in its approach, and that’s what reflects in the vibe of our cafe. We spent over a year working on the intricacies of the cafe, from the selection of flowers and importing them from Thailand to purchasing the furniture, curating the menu, finalizing the packaging design, staffing, purchasing the cutlery, finalizing the interiors, and even coffee bean selection.”
Dalvi said, “We have spent several hours in the last one year to conceptualize our cafe. It’s a cozy place where you can walk in and have a great time. The food options are really interesting, and we hope everyone enjoys the place as much as we did while putting it together. My only direction to my partner was to recreate standards in the food and beverage business, which she has managed to do quite well with the different kinds of dishes that Plush serves, the plating and presentation, and the interiors of the cafe.”
