What a horrible place to go to. First of all, the owners are extremely rude and the food is dry and tasteless. I should have known as I was wondering how they can call themselves a bakery yet they don't have any ovens. The sandwich I got tasted like it was made with two day old bread. It was flavourless,...

This little oasis in a sea of island mediocrity has long been one our favourite Salt Spring experiences. For sure, the best coffee, breads, treats and sandwiches around. Everything is fresh and organic; try the vegetarian pizza. And, once-per-once, the bookstore punches well above its weight.

The ambience of morningside is magnetic and it's visibly buzzing with energy and love. The beverages and baked goods are unique and intoxicatingly delicious. This place is rad!

This is my favourite coffee shop of Salt Spring. Being in Fulford has great appeal too. It's an enchanting little sanctuary to go read, or zone out, or meet solid people over the best latte's and food around.

I've been going to this establishment since it opened in 2002. The food has always been excellent, and the service has always been un-abashedly honest and straight which stands out against the overly "nice" service I get everywhere else I patron. Most other places I go surf this edge of overcompensating niceness that lands for me as inauthentic. I've always... More

It looked like a nice little bookshop and cafe, but the girl behind the counter was extremely rude! First of all, we were not greeted at all when we came in, and tthe way she took the order was not polite at all (she hardly said a word). Then after we had our cappuccinos (4,50 each), I went back because... More

My husband and I were excited to bring our four friends to enjoy this little cafe that had been such a treat for us months before. Our experience was entirely different. When I asked if there was a problem with serving us, since her manner was not friendly, she was arguing with my friend, and stated she has customers to... More

If I could sum up the customer service at Morningside it would be, "Shocking. Simply shocking." It seems that regular paying customers are treated quite differently than the friends and acquaintances of the proprietors, which is not a sustainable business model. While there are quite a few warm and overly positive reviews here on TripAdvisor, a plurality of them have... More
