Much bigger than the smaller, yet just as charming Oceanside location, the newly opened Carlsbad Succulent Cafe features a large outdoor patio that is surrounded by walls made of plants, rustic woods and quotes that read “Live, Love, Laugh and Dream.” Wine barrels, artsy decor and gorgeous live-edge wooden tables adorn the café along with a pretty waterfall that greets you as you walk in under a sign that says, “Have a succulent day.”
There’s a gift shop adjacent to the café, so there’s plenty of site to see as you sip a pour-over, nosh on a delicious danish or shop for greenery. There are literally thousands of succulents to choose from. There are many variations which come in plant-it-yourself containers or decorative pots, ranging in size from tiny to knee high. They come in many shades of green, mostly, but there’s a few shades of purples, yellows and pinks too. You can buy one, buy an entire arrangement or even adorable premade planters.
The menu is that of a typical coffee shop with lattes, espresso, flat-whites and what not, however, it’s deliciously brewed Stumptown Coffee is a can’t miss. Fresh baked pastries, breads and croissants brought in daily.
Even if you lack a green thumb or you don’t like coffee, head here to do some work on your laptop or have a cup of tea or cocoa. This spot is very serene and relaxing, come and experience a namaste moment for yourself.
