Café Vita et flores (Latin for 'life and flowers') provides a relaxed alfresco setting for family and friends
We warmly welcome you to Café Vita et flores, a visionary urban café-florist concept located within the heart of both the Springvale Botanical Cemetery and Bunurong Memorial Park grounds. It is the ideal destination to relax, read a book or gather with family and friends for a long lunch or after a funeral gathering.
Rivalling any Melbourne café on style and food quality, our cafés are open seven days a week for great espresso, snacks, seasonally designed menus and an abundance of fresh flowers.
Surrounded by hundreds of acres of magnificent gardens, it’s hard to imagine a more beautiful café setting. Whether you choose to relax inside or outside, there is always a delicious selection of fresh snacks, meals and refreshments to enjoy.
Our cafés are fully licenced and available to the public, offering free Wi-Fi for those wishing to stay connected while enjoying the beautiful garden surroundings.
Both cafés offer the convenience of playgrounds to help entertain younger children with live Sunday Jazz music performed at Springvale, in the summer months, for the more discerning audience.
For those looking for something more intimate, look out for our speciality luncheons held throughout the year, with dates that include Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas.
It is no surprise that when we reflect on the moments in our life that are most meaningful, the connection of loved ones and food are often accompanying. Embracing this belief, we are endeavouring to redefine the role that memorial parks play in the lives of our community. Providing an intimate and caring environment for family and friends to come together, Café Vita offers a variety of culturally and dietary diverse menus. Whether celebrating a loved one at an after funeral/memorial service or enjoying a relaxed afternoon at our cafe, we look forward to sharing our love for food with you.Discover Our Functions
