High quality dishes that were perfectly executed. Professional, friendly service. We thoroughly enjoyed all our courses - especially dessert! We'll be back for those homemade doughnuts.

Over the years The Corner has through periods where the food has ranged from good to bloody awful. It now has new owners/chef and we decided to give it another try - in all honesty only because we had a 50% off birthday voucher. We went with expectations of a nice, but nothing special meal. How wrong were we!! We... More

We were staying at the Hotel which the restaurant is attached. The coffee here was well crafted from a Campos blend. The breakfast was a pleasure to eat.

The food is great, and priced well. Also the staff are welcoming and friendly. Well worth visiting. And I love the Hello Koala outside, all dressed up for an evening out!

It's my third opportunity to post a review of The Corner, and given that I found fault on both previous occasions, I'm delighted to say that I couldn't fault this experience. We were welcomed on arrival, our orders were taken promptly, and the food was delicious. Our Tuesday lunches sometimes mean we all settle on the same dish, sometimes -... More

This is a local cafe that we have been to 20 or 30 times. It was previously excellent under Peter's guidance but after it changed hands the quality dropped slightly and the menu changed to something less interesting. It is still a good cafe but if you have not been for 12 months don't expect it to be the same.

I thoroughly recommend!! I am an extremely fussy diner and this was spot on. Casual and friendly service staff lots of care and warmth. The food was incredible . To be be honest I just didn't expect it I don't know why, maybe a bit of a Melbourne restaurant snob.... My husband had John Dory that was just too good... More
