As seen at Verve Magazine online –

Peel to Pip is a café with a familiar feel where you can easily relax, whether you’re tapping away on a laptop or instead, letting the kids run freely in a dedicated area while you read the newspaper or your favourite magazine. The combination of approachable staff, a bright and comfy seating area and a unique menu, make it an ideal location for a lazy mid-week start or a weekend brunch.

Well known for their creative milkshakes, we would recommend you try their sweet and creamy Niuean vanilla bean version, which has a bold and luscious flavour that is accented by toasted coconut and topped off with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream ($7.50).

In regard to the food, the menu uses fresh, seasonal ingredients and is always changing. We had the tail end of the summer menu for lunch and enjoyed their flavoursome Portobello and Chestnut Mushrooms ($16.50), which were complemented by a whipped, herb feta and pistachio dukkah, atop crusty, warm sourdough. For a lighter option, the Summer Bowl ($16.50) made out of a crispy lettuce leaf and abundantly filled with grilled sweet corn, green beans, kale, wild rice, cherry tomatoes and a light miso dressing was great. Our meals were thoughtfully presented and came out quickly.

If you’re after something sweet to have with your Eighthirty coffee, all the baking is done in-house, with lots of traditional favourites, including boysenberry and lemon Louise cake, two types of caramel slices and brownies, banana cake, wholemeal carrot cake and cookies too! We can confirm that their ginger and pecan slice will literally melt in your mouth and it is just like your mum would make it (with the important, double serving of ginger icing).

A great addition to the Morningside area!
