Common Grounds is a great little café in the historic town of Morpeth. This little town is in the Hunter region, about 30 minutes away from the Hunter Valley main area.
The café is situated alongside the Hunter river, and if you sit in the rear of the café, you have a view of the river.
The café has plenty of space to eat in, whether it be with your family, friends or solo. They have an all day breakfast and lunch menu with plenty of options from eggs, avo on toast, to fish and chips. We like that the menu has plenty of options for dietary requirements, such as G/F, Vegetarian and Vegan dishes. Their sweet potato rosti was lovely. This V and Gluten Free dish is a pattie of smooth sweet potato, crispy exterior and served with beetroot hummus, salsa, lemon and greens.
We also enjoyed the marinated steak sandwich with caramelised onion, roquette, smoked cheese and house made relish on Turkish Bread. Ordinarily it is made with chips, but they were kind enough to let me order salad instead.
Drinks wise, there’s plenty of juices, milkshakes, smoothies and they use Glee Coffee for the coffee beans. They also have a range of sweet treats from slices to cakes.
We thought the service was stellar, with the lady making every effort to make us feel welcome and well looked after.
