Good ambience, plates for all and good service. It is a tad disappointing that the true wild Bohemians no longer frequent the place, are dead or have left the country. Cell phone users appear to have replaced the poets but never mind, some of us still remember the days of Midnight in her prime.

Frequented thos place regularly when staying in Cuba St. Great coffee and a wide variety of vegan and vege friendly options. Open late so good for a late night feed following a night out. Friendly staff great atmosphere, a little cramped at times.

Excellent selection of reasonable meals, both in terms of cabinet food and menu items. Good for a snack too. Some people get hung up about the service here but to be honest I really enjoy going somewhere where the staff are having a good time, even if it means you have to wait a while to be served while they...

Stumbled in here off Cuba street eager for a good feed and it certainly didn't disappoint. I ordered the Omelette with mushroom, spinach and smoked salmon. It was generous and delicious. The hash brown and egg stack looked lovely too. Great cup of coffee too. Not too plush or over friendlly but nice hipster vibe and excellent food. Will definitely... More

When you do manage to get a seat this place is great for a quick meal, otherwise it has to be a to-go but that is okay as long as they keep making their amazing bliss balls! Great prices for fantastic food. The vegan nachos are also amazing. Loud music, busy staff, smallish place, but that is part of the... More

Came here a few times for some Mocha and once in a while Tea. Decided to try some of their cakes and they were rich, moist and served such big portions. Oh btw, at that time I didn't know they were vegan cakes... Until a few weeks and a few slices of cakes later... I just so happened to be... More

This is a local spot full of people from all walks of life. If you have any special dietary requirements you will have no problem finding something delicious here. If you're not into veg/vegan food, don't let the idea of it put you off! The food is great regardless.They also do the best and cheapest coffees in town. My highest... More

With a variety of both "normal" and vegetarian food, Midnight Espresso is a nice place to visit. Very busy, with not many seats, you need to pick your time to go.
