The decor inside was nice, it looked promising. Then I got to the bar to order. First I was ignored, I was stultified. When I was noticed, the attitude of the person behind the bar switched between openly hostile and aloof. I had the pleasure of seeing a lot of the back of her head, while I waited. I asked... More

my partner is an alchemist, she prepares our customer's beverges on a counter behind her where she curates the most robust aromatic and delicious organic single origin teas... no tea bags. she is known for her incredible tea making skills. so naturally her back is to the customer when she is preparing and focusing on their order.. we clearly do...

I love this place. They make the most amazing chai lattes, coffee, and matcha lattes. Their food is some of the best on the island. Always fresh, organic ingredients, many of them local. If you're willing to stay a while and chat, the owners have much to share.

I was so happy to find a place to eat out where all the food is organic, healthy, and tastes delicious. My children are always happy to eat there, read the children's stories, and enjoy the atmosphere. It is hard to find a place that is vegan, organic, and offers many great tasting foods for my whole family. I like... More

My family eats lunch or dinner at Morningside Cafe a few times a month and its where we stock up on vegan cheese and butter. If its your first time, here's my recommendations after 3 years of eating here. I get the "Original Tofu" every time, its just ridiculous. My partner and kids always get the Vegg Panini and the...

Absolutely horrible customer service. Also, notice how the owner responds to negative reviews? He always has the same stories of how the customers were being abusive. I actually met the man who works at the restaurant, and he has real anger issues. I talked to locals and they all told me that this place is a joke and that they... More

Our family goes to Morningside frequently. We are delighted with the quality of food which is always beautifully presented. If you are looking for interesting, thoughtful books their selection is well chosen. We also love the choice of music. Highly recommend the food, books and especially the wonderful conversations we have with Mano and Allan when we are there. Always... More

I had a great coconut milk latte here and a truly delicious bar of coconut and apricot topped with raw chocolate. Intense flavour, completely delicious and of course gluten free. Enjoyed everything! This is a great spot to get a coffee while waiting for the Fulford ferry. Browse the interesting small selection of books on sustainability, vegan cooking, and other... More
