The new Garden of Reno coffee concept sells coffee and offers a florist

A new concept of coffee in town offers flavors and flora.

The Garden of Reno, which held its grand opening last week at 700 S. Wells Ave., is a combination florist and cafe that serves locally roasted java and pastries in a lounge environment.

The family business is run by Christina Perry, her husband Nathan Perry, her daughter Jessica Kozlowski and her niece Katharine Thornton. The family previously worked in the wedding industry for over a decade, focusing on bridal flowers and flower arrangements.

Perry told the RGJ that beyond coffee and snacks, the garden aspires to be a place where people can plan their weddings in comfort.

“There’s really no place for event specialists, like your photographers or your DJs, where they can go and meet the brides,” Perry said. “We realized this was something we needed, where people could feel at home and have access to linen books and everything we have access to.”

The garden has a flower shop with a florist, personalized bouquets and a wide choice of arrangements. Some of the food and drink offerings include flower-infused coffee and pastries from Rounds Bakery, Delicious Designs, and Dorinda’s Chocolates. Licensing requirements prohibit the Garden from making its own food.

The coffee shop joins a small club of concept cafes in Reno, which includes the newly opened Enchanted Cat Cafe.
