Venzin Group – the hospitality collective behind Pawpaw, Mons Thai and Sunday’s Cafe – added to its portfolio in 2019 with Monocle Coffee, a specialty coffee house located in Morningside. The handy neighbourhood pit-stop serves up high-end specialty coffee, alongside tea, organic chai, hot chocolate from Mörk, matcha and turmeric superfood lattes, and freshly squeezed orange juice. When it comes to eats, Monocle offers a range of fresh pastries, toast with preserves, avocado smash and a rotating choice of sandwich, soup and salad. Venzin Group’s own commercial kitchen makes Monocle’s salad selection fresh daily, with a range of 15 options cycling through the cabinet. Expect salads loaded with ingredients including green pea and couscous, roasted maple pumpkin and quinoa, brown rice and sweet potato, roasted cauliflower and tahini, and potato with grilled corn.
