That '70s cafe
Entering the Southside Tea Room in Morningside is like walking onto the set of That '70s Show, complete with retro formica tables and shabby chic sofa. The only thing missing from this scene is Eric Forman and friends.

Southside Tea Room, Morningside

Owned by Patience Hodgson and John Patterson of Brisbane indie band The Grates, the Southside Tea Room is primarily a take-away coffee shop. They do have a limited lunch menu though: Grilled Cheese, Hungry Hippie, and Italian Slab sandwiches. As they were sold out of Hungry Hippies the day we visited, I ordered the Grilled Cheese with gruyere and cheddar cheese ($6) while my husband chose the Italian Slab with mortadella, salami, pepperoni, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise ($12). Our sandwiches were toasted and tasty. The service was fast and friendly.

The Southside Tea Room is now open late on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights for cocktails and beers. Cocktails cost $18 - ouch.

High tea is served on weekends with a selection of sweet and savoury treats, tea, coffee, and mimosas. The cost is $40 per person. Bookings are required.

The Southside Tea Room is located at 639 Wynnum Road.
