One of the best things about my job is taking tea and cookie breaks at Morning Owl Coffee House Rochester! Seriously though, I thank my lucky stars for the close proximity of this adorable little coffee house to my office.

Offering some of the best cookies in town such as their heavenly peanut butter cookies, raspberry jam sugar cookies, and gingersnaps that make you weak in the knees, I happily fork over a large percentage of my salary to feed my Morning Owl cookie addiction.

Inside Morning Owl Coffee House – friendly staff, great food!

Last summer, Dumpling Park made its debut in Morning Owl’s backyard (a cute little secret lunch spot) and it looks like something out of a fairytale. Lovingly run by Krista O’Leary,  Dumpling Park features a pastel-coloured trailer converted into a kitchen, beautiful planters, artificial turf and patio sets laid out to welcome patrons to this little backyard oasis set in Little Italy. Also of note is its graffiti wall, one of the prettiest in the city.  This place is incredibly conducive to chillaxin’ while enjoying a delicious lunch.

In true fashion blogger form, my friends Zafy, Racha and I took over Dumpling Park once it closed for a little photoshoot against its beautiful graffiti wall. We marveled at its beauty and the time it must have taken to complete, and also thought that all patios should have some beautiful urban art! Hope you enjoy the pics from our visit!

Be sure to visit Morning Owl Rochester and Dumpling Park, Ottawa’s little secret dumpling spot. Treat yourself to a delicious dumpling lunch, and then arm yourself with some of Morning Owl’s totally delicious cookies and fine coffee for dessert. Feeling like something else? Morning Owl also offers artisanal sandwiches (breads provided by Art Is In Bakery) and fantastic salads – all made in-house.  Bon appetito!

Morning Owl Coffee House Rochester and Dumpling Park are located at 538 Rochester Street (other locations around the city too – Dumpling Park is located at the Rochester Street location only).  You can also find Morning Owl Coffee House on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Dumpling Park is also on Instagram

    This place looks so cute! And I love the graffiti wall! I went on a graffiti tour while in Bogota earlier this month and really became interested in street art through that tour.

      Wow Crystal! I saw a fashion documentary on some Colombian fashion bloggers and Bogota seems so stylish! I would love to visit one day and see the fashion and street art first hand! Thanks for your kind comments!
