Tucked away on a side street, a luxury cafe-meets-flower shop recently opened this summer in Bloomfield, NJ — and we’re sharing a peek into the fun. Located at 75 Wasxhington Street in Bloomfield, New Jersey, Casa De Flora Bar is owned by floral designer Maritza Walton who describes the venue as “an upscale space [with] beautiful ceiling pink floral installs and gorgeous Instagrammable moments.” Here’s more about this newer cafe + DIY flower bar, Casa De Flora, in Bloomfield.
About the Space + Menu
We got a chance to visit recently, and weren’t disappointed. It’s a small space, but cozy + intimate; florals adorn the walls and ceilings, and every detail is thought of to perfection.
On the menu, there are lattes, cappuccinos, coffees, Espresso, lemonade refreshers, cronuts, cupcakes, salads, sandwiches, and of course — fresh flowers. For those looking for allergy-friendly options, the cafe has non-dairy milks. No gluten-free bread — yet — but in an Instagram comment, Maritza said she’s “working on it!”
Its lattes are delicious, and the cafe is known for its cronuts (a twist on a croissant x doughnut). We opted for the apple cinnamon, and it was the ideal choice kicking us into fall gear — stuffed with tons of apples.
There is wifi and space to work from home, which is a definite upgrade to florals and good vibes from the four walls of our homes.
The space is also going to double as a venue for bachelorette parties, baby showers, and more. The space also sells everyday floral gifts for all occasions, according to Maritza, but the real claim to fame and namesake is the flower bar — fresh flowers for you to make your own bouquet!
Guests can also attend future “Sip & Clip” events: a combo of delicious pastries and coffee or wine to accompany your DIY floral creations.
Casa De Flora Bar shared an update on Instagram recently, saying, “We are here and ready to serve!!! Never thought I would be so happy about work, but that’s what happens when you LOVE what you do.” The shop is located at 75 Washington Street in Bloomfield.
