About Us

Emma and Ivy is nestled within the Adelaide Hills in the picturesque town of Lobethal.

Our building has been transformed from a garage dating back to the 1800’s, to an indoor terrarium of plant life for our community and tourists to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Our business has grown from Emma’s single dream of blooms and coffee into a bustling lifestyle community hub. We believe in uniting communities. Where tense shoulders relax and stress dissolves with soul deep laughter and good old banter. With plants harmoniously climbing the walls, everything is alive.

Not just a standard cafe we also house an extensive range of eclectic wares, gourmet custom hampers, plant studio and a boutique bar/cellar door. Event nights and workshops are held throughout the year.

Who is Ivy? Epipremnum Aureum (common name - Devil’s Ivy) was the first plant housed in our original store, however, now it represents our strong forever growing creative team ‘Team Ivy’.

Team Ivy is built with Adelaide Hills locals who are passionate, talented, energetic, inspiring and motivating.

At Emma & Ivy we strive to produce the highest quality food and beverages using produce that is sourced locally wherever possible. Everything that colours the plate is flavoured with a local story. Local orchards, vineyards, dairies and farms are the pantry for our hills menu.

We support local charities, sports clubs and community events such as the Lights of Lobethal.

We are striving to reduce the impact of our environmental footprint. For takeaway food and beverages we only use compostable or recyclable containers, cups and lids. Our coffee grounds are sent off to nourish local worm farms, the food waste goes to the awaiting free-range chickens, paper and cardboard are recycled and our cooking oil is recycled into engine oil and animal feed.

Breathe it all in and meet great humans.

Plant Studio

Emma & Ivy is a botanical sanctuary housing a substantial variety of indoor plant living. Our sound knowledge and love for the indoor terrarium is endless. The feeling of gifting and receiving or even adding another member to the family is addictive. We strive to coordinate the perfect combination of plant and pot for the perfect spot. Nestle yourself in our leafy oasis to hand select, or by simply contacting the store to arrange the ideal gift.

You have made the big decision, but what now? Ask Team Ivy for some simple steps to care for your new addition. In return, your new plant will repay you with quality, clean air!

We offer a large range of indoor plant needs: watering cans, Japanese sharps, Plant Runner, Sustee moisture meter, Munash Organics, We the WIld and many more.
