When Georgia Woodyard and Anne Cooper walked passed a corner cafe space behind the UNSW Art and Design campus in Paddington, they knew they’d found the perfect spot for a follow up to Scout’s Honour, their cafe in Redfern.
Morris provides something for everyone, from locals looking for a slow breakfast, to strapped students in need of a quick lunch. Cooper designed the breezy, minimal interior to have an open kitchen, and the duo is pleased to have a downstairs prep area for catering.
The famous sandwiches get a makeover and sometimes include a bursting poached chicken, tarragon, caramelised-onion and lemon-mayo option. There’s also a roast mushroom, feta and zucchini house-made pickle version. There are spicy fish tacos and the Marrakech bowl of melting 12-hour slow-roast lamb, cauliflower, shredded raw cabbage, labneh and still crunchy lentils is a generous bowl filled with herbs and toasted nuts.
Coffee options include cold brew, filter and 5 Senses espresso. Scout’s giant cookies feature at both cafes, and go perfectly with a hot milo or old-school vanilla malt shake, best enjoyed by the wide-open window looking out to the tree-lined street.
