Try our selection of delicious coffees, including our very own blend. It's smooth, aromatic and not to be missed. Or if a cup of tea is more your thing then make sure to sit back with one of our selection of loose leaf teas.

What our customers have to say

We enjoyed a relaxed late breakfast here recently. Very pleasant young staff and plenty alternatives for a Sunday brunch. Proper leaf tea was a bonus. Will return!

I visited with my family on a busy Saturday afternoon, however, the service was prompt and our order arrived quickly and with a smile. The coffee is the best I’ve had in Morningside and my daughter swears by the carrot cake. I would definitely recommend. Thank you.
