Cleo + Louis
Cleo + Louis is a quaint, specialty pot, plant and gift shop/cafe nestled on Racecourse Road in Hamilton.
A one-stop-shop for lovers of plants and coffee, this the perfect place to find a gorgeous gift for yourself, family and friends, and get caffeinated at the same time.
Owner Rachel describes her shop as the David Jones of plant stores, offering high end, exclusive plant pots sourced from across Australia, ranging from petite planters to massive pots.
As well as stylish, stunning pots to spruce up your own home, both indoors and out, there's an array of plants including house plants, succulents, cacti and more.
Rachel and her friend Hamish, decided to join forces with the most recent addition to Cleo + Louis, an espresso bar that sits at the front of the store.
The coffee shop is rather small but what it lacks in space, it makes up for with delicious coffee on pour, plus a delectable range of sweet and savoury treats to eat in or takeaway - think chocolate peanut butter brownies, blueberry friands, and scrumptious cupcakes.
Customers can sit at the counter and enjoy an expertly-brewed coffee by boutique, small-batch, coffee roaster St Ali, while watching passers-by stroll up Racecourse Road.
Nice to know - Cleo + Louis is dog-friendly with resident pooch Armani on stand-by to greet customers.
