Good but could have been better..

Great eggs Benedict, but the toast was a little burnt and there was a table or two that were served their orders before us. Also the milk in the milkshake was a little warm... But other than that friendly service and lovely place to eat

The Breakfast was up to the best yardstick quality and the sort you hope that often don't get. High-quality materials cooking and presentation. Median price and we had no hesitation going back. Friendly, quiet and attentive service. Some bad reports worried us – we did not need to have been concerned at all

Even though it was a busy Monday night and we hadn't booked, we were warmly greeted, a table was found for us, and the meals arrived in the timeframe promised (allowing for the level of clientele already present). The accompanying vegetables with the meals were first class, as were the sides. Great flavours and well presented dishes. Coffee after (no... More

The coffee was good, the flourless almond cake was terrible and wet. Perhaps the food is better...maybe worth a visit.

Thank you for dropping by for coffee and cake. We really appreciate the feedback and apologise that the cake was far too moist. Since receiving your comments, the chefs have amended the recipe. We’re sorry you didn’t tell us while you were in the restaurant as we would have offered you an alternative cake or sweet treat. We’re pleased you... More

We love coming to the Corner for any meal, but dinner is particularly good. Great seasonal menu which changes frequently, so us locals don't get tired of the same stuff. In saying that, I wish they would bring back the apple risotto for dessert - that was DIVINE. Reasonable prices for a lovely dining experience. They also have a good... More

We had breakfast here this morning. I had Bruschetta and my wife had scrambled eggs. Both were good as was the coffee and efficient service. I would recommend this place for breakfasts.
