Popular Redfern eatery and sandwich palace Scout's Honour has welcomed a new addition into the family. Meet Morris. He's entered the world on the corner of Albion Avenue and Selwyn Street in Paddington — and he promises to be just as popular as his chicken 'n' chip sanga-lovin' big brother.
Morris's menu is a sandwich lover's dream and, similar to Scout's Honour, focuses on good, clean basics and wholesome ingredients. You'll find a combo of sandwiches, salads and bowls, all full to the brim with ingredients your nutritionist would approve of (think fresh veggies, seeds, nuts and lean meats). The spicy fish tacos with shredded cabbage, corn and cucumber salsa, avocado, toasted pepitas, harissa sauce and fresh lime ($16) are a clear standout.
The comprehensive sides and additions menu means you can freshen up your toast or tailor your meal to your taste. Although you may find yourself stuck on the sides, with options like with an avocado, coriander and walnut salsa with sesame and lemon ($6), labneh and hazelnut dukkah ($5) and bacon and house pickles ($6). Wash it down all with a freshly squeezed juice, chai or smoothie. For the winter months, we've got out eye firmly trained on the mug of hot Milo with textured milk ($4).
The cute new eatery is a summer-time haven with shady outdoor eating and large street front windows to complement the fresh menu. They've taken a few cues from Scout's Honour and kept the interior design and colour palette warm and simple, with yellow and cream finishes throughout and a rough concrete finish on the exterior. Morris has all the qualities we've come to love about Scout's Honour, while still managing to be his own person (er, cafe).
