“Coffee and Quirk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Love it, love the atmosphere, the eco-friendly vibe - from the brilliant grafitti that adorn the walls, to the personal attention from Judd the owner, to the quirkiness of the menu. It's the trendiest corner with the best coffee anywhere in Durban - nay, in SA!

“Love Coffee, love Character, Love Corner Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This corner restaurant is basically our second kitchen, we live a few houses away and hardly a day goes by when we can resist dropping in for a cup of Judd (the house coffee which is named after the owner, head waiter and underlying spirit of corner cafe, Judd Campbell.) Not to mention a piping hot breadstick stuffed with peppadews, feta and olives. Our 9 month old son has been happily distracted by these handy cullinary teething tools since he was 4 months old. I doubt you will find a more regular friendly coffee shop in Durban than this Corner Cafe. It epitomises the best of the Glenwood - is (truly) eco-friendly, totally relaxed, intimate, bustling, family and even dog friendly and that's before you've tasted the delicious locally sourced, organic where possible, food and beverages. Local is lekker and lekker is Corner Cafe. Do it. We do. Daily.

“Funky decor, great coffee”

This has got distinct character (it also displays artwork), with yummy food - lots of healthy options too - and great vibe. Visitors have to catch some Durban spirit and check this place out.

“Amazing. A little slice of perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Favorite spot for breakfast, lunch or just to chill. The place IS Durban, with all it's quirks , creativity and awesomeness. Organic, local and wholesome describe the food with a major dash of rad. Have a coffee, chat to the staff, be a local
