Only went there because I saw the coffee in a cookie mug on Facebook a few months ago. I didn't expect a small espresso biscuit cup, but I should've guess. The chocolate inside melts with the hot coffee and it's instantly ready to drink. Amazing!!!!! If you like your coffee hot, don't take this, the mug is kept cold so... More

Was so looking forward to my coffee when I saw the Love Coffee van at The Morning Trade Market. There was no on in line and there were three employees sitting in the Van, we stood at the counter for a few moments before I had to say "Hello, can we order some coffee?" It seemed like it was shocking... More

Amazing place, amazing coffee. Earthy vibe and delicious vegan food. This place shares love in more places than just their coffee, supporting an outreach program without second thought. Shows the true character of this brand. Thank you, we love your coffee!

The lowlight of our visit to The Morning Trade today. The Barista couldn't even be bothered to say hello to us while we stood waiting to place our order. It felt like our order was a burden to her. Cappuccino was cold and not enjoyable. What a pity, that old VW van is so impressive, the customer experience today however... More

Dear OnlyGoodFood99 I am so sorry to hear about your experience at The Morning Trade on Sunday. Although we do our very best to provide the best customer service, sometimes the heat can get the better of us. I am also disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy your cappuccino. We steam our milk to the standard temperature of 65 degrees... More
