Critic's review

Food
‘Pimp my toast’ is a delicious alternative to the traditional breakfast, consisting of two slices of perfectly toasted ciabatta topped with fried mushroom, warmed cocktail tomatoes, and spectacular feta and rocket. It’s enough for two to share. Courgette carbonara is elegantly simple, made with baby marrow, egg, parmesan and mascarpone, while the tangy ‘the tin man sandwich’ is made with tuna mayo, parsley, red onions, sundried tomatoes and gherkins. One would be hard pressed to find better quality easy eating anywhere else.

Wine
A simple but well chosen list that includes a fair number of great wines by the glass. Try the Carpenè Malvolti Prosecco. If you’re on the wagon, large baskets filled with fresh fruit are waiting to be pressed for fresh juice.

Service
Waiters and managers all wear funky khaki-grey uniforms that create a coherent feel. Friendly and helpful.

Ambience
The interior reflects the brand’s emphasis on quality in an understated way, with large display cabinets and tables showing off baked goods that include cute gingerbread men, cakes, cloche-covered Turkish delight and macaroons. Each branch features a unique décor touch; here, it’s hundreds of linen napkins suspended from the ceiling.

And...
Different branches have their own identity, from the original in Atholl to this branch that specialises in healthier options. Only the Melrose Arch and Brooklyn branches offer dinner, while Atholl introduced a new initiative, ‘Tashas at the office’, delivering meals to your place of work. (HF, October 2011)

  • Grace Adonis 28 April 2015 I had lunch with a colleague at Tasha's Morning side,I had a Forget me Not sandwich and i enjoyed it thoroughly and so did my colleague...I would definitely eat there anytime soon,as they where very busy with the lunch time rush but i would be lying if i say we waited more then ten minutes for our order. That is what i call speedy service but also very well presented food. Way to go Tasha's Team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Disgustingly rude manager! On Sun 22 March my son and I went for breakfast at Tasha's in Morningside. The food was good, the service ok once we had managed to attract the attention of a waiter, but unfortunately I will remember this visit (probably my last one!) because of the incredibly rude manager who I overheard telling one of his staff who had approached him "what are you doing here, just p*ss off!!" and then followed it up by telling her to "get the hell out of here!!". I'm not sure what she had downe to deserve this sort of treatment but it is totally unacceptable and very unprofessional behaviour. I won't be back.

  • I work in Morningside and visit Tasha's Morningside often. Last Thursday I met a business associate there and accidentally left my diary there. Today I went and queried and one of their staff had handed it in. That diary practically has my life in it! Many thanks to Tasha's and their honesty, they have me as a lifetime client!

  • My second visit to Tasha's Morningside and sadly I was not impressed by the service, again. And trying to bring my unhappiness to the manager's attention proved unsuccessful. It seemed he was in a rush to head on home. I will definitely give Tasha's Morningside a miss in the future.
