Cure your Sunday hangover at Morning After

From the green felt couches to the counter full of enticing sweet treats, South Brisbane’s newest café has plenty to adore. Named for the Sunday morning feels we’ve all suffered many times before, Morning After is all about quality food and drinks in a warm and welcoming setting. It’s easy to see why the café is months overdue from it’s original open date. Not one element looks out of place in the sleek but inviting café, which sits just below the recently completed The Glass Factory development. Open bay windows provide a perfect perch for people watching while a tiny neon sign on the white washed wall cheekily reminds you why you feel so lousy. morning after brisbane cafes 2There’s no need to worry you’ll miss out on bacon if you can’t get out of bed until noon though, with the menu featuring all day breakfast options and lunch from 11.30am-3pm. The breakfast menu is unique to say the least, with dishes like sweet corn pakora with fried egg, haloumi, avocado and corn, or a sand crab omelette with betel leaf, chilli, peanuts and lime. There are plenty of lighter options, like The Unrefined granola, with yoghurt and rosewater jelly or warm vanilla rice pudding with poached pear, cardamom and pistachio, but if serious carbs are your ultimate morning feed, the parpadelle carbonara with 63 degree eggs is G&G tested and approved.

Morning After also pours boutique coffee from 5 Senses and local roaster Uncle Joe’s, and is licensed for lunch with plenty of wine, beer, cider and spirits in case hair of the dog is the only cure for you. You’ll find Morning After at the corner of Vulture Street & Cambridge Street, open 7am-4pm. Words by Ranyhyn Akui Photography by Judit Losh
