Fresh, made to order, and always tasty.

We used to visit this bakery whilst waiting for the ferry at Fulford. However, now we would deliberately just go there to get a loaf of bread and/or a pastry. Most important aspect for us, everything is organic. The bread is paleo, not gluten free, but organic wheat - tastes lovely! The pastries... read more

A truly unique atmosphere, careful attention to detail makes it not just a place to eat but a work of Art. But the best part is the consciously dedicated service that every order is given. A Divine oasis that is a must to experience.

You don't go to the morning side cafe,you "do" the morning show cafe. The owner is a great supporter of green causes,and sells an interesting library of books on tangent topics. What up are really going for though if the experience of meeting Manon. I call her the radical French woman. Not to her face. Manon is an experience not... More

This cafe breathes of the love that owners Alan and Monet have poured into the space. Every inch has been built and created with intention and care. The warm wooden benches, sunlight books and delicious scents cradle and delight the senses. The drinks are excellent and the hosts clearly care about their guests. A visit to salt spring is not...

For us, a trip to Salt Spring Island wouldn't be complete without a visit to Morningside Café. We first visited the café in 2010 and loved the food. My wife and I usually get the veggie burgers and the kids love the croissants and pizza. The veggie burgers taste so good they are almost addictive. I don’t particularly recall the... More

On Salt Spring Island we pride ourselves in our diverse, welcoming community. Visitors come from near and far to experience our unique culture, our arts, our agriculture and our healthful food and wellness practises. Morningside Bakery have been an embarrassment to the village of Fulford...unfriendly, expensive and often down right rude.

My wife and I LOVE to read & are always looking for something new to dig our teeth into. Morningside delivers - every time. Our only problem is that we usually find so many great books, we have to leave with arm-loads of them! For those who spend as much time in bookstores as we do - it is easy... More

What's with the woman working behind the counter on Saturday September 20, 2014? She started off rude and became ruder. I told her several times, I can't hear you, please speak up. She managed after that to turn away from me when she spoke, I mean mumbled. The customer before me asked, how much; she pointed at the till rather... More
