Have eaten here many time and tried a few different dishes. Everything has always been delicious and tasty. The portions are large and very well priced! Excellent for a late breakfast or lunch.

Lovely staff so friendly, great brunch options and good lunch soups as well. Not the standard brunch place, a bit quirky with a Mexican twist

I've eaten here several times and it's always been good. Great choice of foods from breakfast /snacks/soups/bigger meals. Helpful friendly staff too which always makes a difference! Good value - and takeaway service.

This is a great little cafe, one of many in Morningside. I suspect quite a bit of their business comes from take away trade but they have several tables and a really extensive menu.
