I love doing breakfast out and I've had many, from city and country cafes to 5 star hotels (not enough) but I have never enjoyed a breakfast more. The poached egg was perfect and the bacon and sausage obviously from a good country butcher. The order was delivered quickly and just as we asked for it and the service was... More

I know this has had great reviews but we had just spent a few months in Sydney where breakfasts are phenomenal - this wasn't. Nothing particularly wrong with it but just OK. Service friendly and efficient.

We had a fabulous sharing plate as a main and also the shared dessert plate. The wines were great with a good comprehensive wine list, and the food was absolutely delicious. Very reasonably priced and a good menu as well

The coffee is great but the less than enthusiastic staff makes this an optional destination. If you just want to relax on a public holiday without political statement being forced in your face also avoid.

Thank you for your feedback on the great coffee. We apologise that the service you experienced was not to our usual standard.

We were staying in the adjoining apartments and called in here for a drink. The food we spotted looked good so after a quick walk down the Main Street decided to return for dinner. Good decision, the food turned out to be lovely. We shared a chicken starter which was delicious. Then we had salmon and fillet steak. Both very... More

Ok. So I am a sucker for Mango anything. The parfait soldier sitting on a gel block with a fruit purée arranged on slate was a spectacular visual and taste experience A massive chicken portion was moist tender and perfectly cooked with a tasty roast vegetable selection in a chilli jam.

After an uninspiring experience a while ago, we thought The Corner deserved a fresh chance. Certainly, the food was considerably better than on our first visit - the three of us selected four dishes from the "share a plate" menu, and the chef was most helpful in keeping the whipped goat's cheese separate from the crumbed mushrooms, and offering aioli...

Called in for a cup of take away coffee Anzac day. It was busy but not bustling. The blonde female helping to serve was slow and seemed confused and not overly concerned with the customers most of the time. Very limited verbal communication or expression. Ok fine.
