Really chilled dinner with family. Prawn pasta the best I have had. Will definitely be back and recommend highly for an informal night out with friends.

Took the family to Cnr Cafe on Saturday morning for breakfast. This was my first time visiting and we were all suitably impressed. Very friendly staff, great coffee and probably the best breakfast I have eaten for a while. Quite a drive for us but I would definitely make the effort and go back.

Morning we fancied eggs Benedict although here it is called Hollandais which cam highly recommended. Extremely well made with various ingredients. Coffee was also good, but the fresh orange juice was too watery. Service... More

Nice busy cafe/restaurant. The waiters are friendly and helpful and the food was nice however I found the salad to be a little small and the calamari overcooked. Creme brûlée was cold and the caramelised layer so thick I couldn't break it and it came away in one piece.

Twelve of us gathered for dinner on a Wed night. We could barely hear the person sitting next to us and not those across the table. My butternut pizza on a crispy crust was delicious. Salads appeared quite nice. Another person said his fish & chips was the worst ever. We can't totally recommend this place

Corner Cafe has friendly waiters, typically there is a nice vibe - especially with a fair number of outdoor table where patrons can enjoy the balmy Joburg weather - and enough cafe-variety on the menu to find something to your taste (even if my normal choice is almost always the steak roll). However, this time around the prawn-pasta dish caused... More

we just love this place, great food friendly staff and amazing quality. This is our family favorite. We have all our Birthdays and special occasion here. They also add a special menu to their already awesome menu. We go as often as we can!

Had only frequented Cnr Cafe some time ago for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised at the hospitality over an informal dinner occasion! Attentive service, limited but very good food quality, value for money & great outdoor setting makes for a fun evening out. The fact that the place was packed is indicative of it's popularity.
