We drove past this place a few times & it was always busy so I thought that we should try it out!! So we headed there for brunch on a breezy Friday. We were greeted by very friendly staff & allowed to choose where to sit. The outside seating isn't particularly attractive, plastic tables & changes are a contrast to... More

Wow was that delicious. Dropped in for a quick breakfast excellent and speedy service as we were time poor. The advocado prefectly ripe, some places skimp on the feta but not here, toast crisp but not hard a real winner.

Greeting and seating was pleasant, professional and trouble free. We chose to sit outside. Water and menus came quickly and waiters were friendly and attentive. Service and food delivery were timely. There was a positive buzz among dinners and staff. We has pizza, bubbles and coffee. The pizza was delicious and the coffee very good. All-in-all, hard to top for... More

I can't say how surprised I was when the dishes were served with excellent mannerisms from the servers. I love how the dishes were prepared and all my friends were saying how nice the food were compared to the ones in the city. Anyone coming to Essendon must surely come here!

This was our first visit to Max's Corner though it won't be our last! We were greeted and shown to our table immediately. Service was what I would expect in some of the more elaborate venues in Sydney with a cuisine to match. Simply a brilliant experience!
