Unassuming small corner café at "Vietnamese" town, with excellent service, unique choices for brunch. We were happy with both the meals and the coffee. We love the toast with perilla leaves. Highly recommended.

We come to Cornersmith at least once a fortnight now. Coffee is great - and so is their selection of cold drinks (which we've been needing in this summer heat). Pretty much every time we go, we have one or two of the soft poached...More

A very popular corner cafe. Personal service. I had coffee and toast with their recommended jam of the day. A small venue with some outside tables. Tasty food and excellent coffee.
