Although the cafe was only half full and I saw four staff working, it took 5 minutes for the staff to stop chatting long enough to take orders. The coffee was lukewarm and bitter and the cream served with the scones was sour. Yep, they served food that was not only past its use by date but was actually bad... More

We really couldn’t ask for a better review of our breakfast service at The Corner. You have summed up what we hope to achieve every morning from 7 to 11am. PS. The new Spring breakfast menu started today – we are loving the House baked brioche French toast, whipped mascarpone, orange, candied walnuts, salted caramel! More

I came here for breakfast with my father. We had the crumpets and the Big Brekkie. Both were really nice, my dad liked his meal and the crumpets are now a new favourite of mine. Only negatives are: 1. Service is a hit and miss- wait staff are nice, not attentive. We had a mishap with our order and it... More

This is a difficult review, as part of the meal was good, one of the waiters was nice! We were greeted in this restaurant and seated by a rather surly waiter, who after making three errors, became pleasant. The beer recommended was very good, but they only had one cold one (reported after the 1st beer was opened and served).... More

My daughter and husband gave us a gift voucher to enjoy a meal at this restaurant and it was beautiful. You could sit outside and enjoy water views or inside in warm comfort. The food and service was as good as we have had anywhere. The staff so obliging and service was really fast considering the number of people dining.... More

We did dine at other restaurants in the Port Macquarie area and we always came back to The Corner Restaurant to complete the night with a fabulous desert.
