Plantherapy is a nature-themed cafe in Johor Bahru. Plantherapy is housed inside Spazehaus, an interior design company based in JB. As its unique glasshouse concept is inspired by a terrarium, hanging dried flowers and live plants pepper the interiors so you can get a taste of what it’s like to be in an enclosed nature bubble while you’re dining here too.

Key Differentiators

  • Firstly, what makes their cafe stand out is that it is housed in a glass dome to make you feel like you’ve entered a life-sized terrarium.

  • Thirdly, their cafe’s nature theme doesn’t just stop at our decor. In our simple menu, comprising personal-sized cakes, sparkling drinks and coffees are decorated with impressive flower and plant decorations that you’ll want to whip out your phones for too.

Mrs. Whó — a name that pays homage to their heritage; the phonetic play on the Chinese character 胡 or hú. They believe in a meticulously crafted menu and a space that resonates with you. Their means are a blend of Western and Asian fare and never short of flair. Every colour, texture, form, carefully thought out. A deliberate choice. You've thought this through; a craving that needs to be met, a thirst to be quenched, or perhaps a memory waiting to be shaped.

They invite you to take five with them.

This place doesn't disappoint! Everything I've tried on the menu has been amazing, and even the way they fuse the flavours together is something you can't find elsewhere in JB. Very innovate dishes that taste good. The staff are the friendliest I've found in JB, and as a regular customer, they really make you feel like family. Coming back to Mrs Who is almost like coming back to a second home. Love this place!

The food there is really good. I recommend it for the people who likes chocolates, and coffee. Well for me, its chocolate Waffle is amazing. The sweetness from chocolate waffle/ice cream and the bitterness from espresso (you can choose to pour it or not), makes it harmony. It has garlic prawn spaghetti which tastes wonderful, but its kinda too spicy. But it's delicious. I like the chocolate cake which soft centre which, paired with vanilla ice cream, and its delicious. I recommend the burnt cheese cake. Its yummy. It's Mille Crepe Cake is also delicious. It's creamy, and it melts in your mouth. Satisfying.
