  • A friend and I went to Origin this morning for breakfast. I must say that the food was great but the service received from our waitress was shocking. She really didn't care about working there and had a terrible attitude. She also overcharged us on our bill. Definitely won't rush to go back.

  • Being bit of in introvert I was slightly surprised when I had to sit around the table with other people, however that didn't stand in the way of an awesome experience. Some of the best coffee I've had. Delectable Eggs Benedict. Very authentic, hipster feel. Definitely a place you'd find me often if I resided in the area! Loved it.

  • My home-away-from-home when I'm working away from home. And if you think that's a mouthful, order a slice of the carrot cake. That is a mouthful.

    One of my pet peeves about coffee, is the omnipresent over-roasting we've come to expect from generic coffee houses. Not an issue at Origin. Goes to show that training and patience really do make the difference.

    Food is beautiful to look at, and to eat. New menu includes an all-day breakfast, the ol' fashioned eggs-and-soldiers served in an egg box (a clever take on a childhood favourite). Choice of rye or sourdough. Extra bacon on the side. What more do you need? Free-range and organic, you say? No problem. It's all that and a side of mushrooms.

    Whatever the problem, the answer is always carrot cake. But when it's not, the answer is banana bread. Served with a hearty portion of farm butter, it's comfort on a plank.

    All the usual fluff about dark wood and soft lighting, but what's really special is the tea room. A quiet temple-like haven where tea enthusiasts gather, and slaves to the bean are converted.

    Overall, very easy to lose oneself for a minute or a day. The service unobtrusive, waitrons having the good sense to leave you well alone when you're focused, but on hand when you're thirsty. No wonder it's always busy.

  • Our first stop from the airport - worth the stop! Great service, superb coffee (ask for recommendations from knowledgeable staff). And yes, they do make the best eggs benedict in town! Make time to experience the high mountain tea ceremony - we had a quick taste of their tea blend of the day - amazingly refreshing. Highly recommended!

  • I was taken to this nice little spot on a gentle grey Monday - 10am.My first time. Good coffee, I had a macchiato and a salmon cream cheese, poppy or sesame seed bagel. It was proper fresh and had real chives. Just the thing for a Monday.They have a kiff breakfast menu, if a little small, it seems honest and good to eat I think. Also a lunch menu with some classics ( salad Nicoise, Morrocan Lamb)The vibe was do your thing. The staff were relaxed, knowledgeable and friendly. The kind of place you can sort of be yourself. They also sell some amazing coffee and grind it for you.

  • Thanks to reading an article on Eat Outs website I was able to get to know about Origins and visit it last Friday morning at 7H15. Origin is a great coffee shop with lots of character. My two cappucinos were great, if not the best I have ever had. The one disappointment was that there was no pastries or breakfast available to go with it (still by 8 am). All is forgiven given the setting and great coffee.
