4 out of 5 stars

Greet the day at West End's freshest new café where the food menu distils influences from around the globe

Here’s an idea: breakfast carbonara. A wobbly 63-degree egg is dying to burst and coat fat ribbons of pappardelle in rivers of yolk. High fives to Morning After’s champ chef Domenico for that variation on the Roman classic.

The breakfast menu at this new West End offering hikes the flavour globe, offering Asian-inspired sand crab omelette with betel leaf, shallots, chilli and the crunch of peanuts; or corn pakoras, rotund in shape and flavour, ganged up with buttery Barossa haloumi, avo, smoked corn cob (unfortunately a bit dehydrated) and a cheek of lime.

The buttermilk and ricotta hotcakes have us finish on a high with batons of apple, roasted peach, a drizzle of maple and a dollop of limed-up mascarpone that works a treat.

The venue has blonde wood and banquette seating upholstered in a shade of lush pasture green set against a gleaming white-tiled wall with neon signage. It’s easily the smartest café fitout the 'hood has seen in some time. Tech heads might select a perch at the bench where recharge ports are waiting for customers to plug in.

Two big names are on pour – Uncle Joe's and 5 Senses. Breakfast is an all-day affair on Sunday. Every other day breakfast slides into lunch with a menu infiltrated with squid, slaws, slow-roasts, tacos, tahini and tempura. Kicking around with nothing to do on Saturday afternoons? Drop in to Morning After for yiros. Opa!


This venue welcomes American Express
