“Great Coffee”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

The coffee was very nice, (Campos) my mate had a mocha and he said it was great. They have water and cups readily available also. The service was excellent and professional. The ambience was very clean and modern. I didn't eat there but the food looked very nice. My only small complaint is the price of a small cup, I thought $4 was a bit steep. This is getting more common now though.

“The corner”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Service slow. Lunch meals second rate. Ingredients left off plate and waiter seemed unconcerned. Really gone downhill since opening.

If you visited us this weekend we sincerely apologise for the slower than usual service. As very proud sponsors of the local running festival we were inundated. The same owners have owned The Corner since opening seven years ago. Our team of Chefs are brilliant and the floor staff take great pride in their workplace. We sincerely apologise if we missed an ingredient and would have rectified the problem immediately if we were advised.

“Very Small Meals”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

My wife and I dinned at 'The Corner', Port Macquarie in early March 2014. The menu offered amongst other things, a steak meal with potatoes and mushroom sauce. As we were looking for a 'big meal' the waitress advised that the steak was around 250 grams. We received a large plate with a very small steak (around 200 grams), 4 small finger nail size potato croutons and a questionable slimy gravy that appeared to have mushrooms in it for the princely sum of $37 each. If you wanted "extra vegetables" I am not sure but I believe they were an additional $9 per person. When the meal arrived my wife and I nearly broke into laughter given the unbelievably small meal and the associated cost. On the plus size the waitress was quite personable. Overall an experience not to be repeated.

Our grass fed beef fillet is one of the most popular dishes on our new autumn menu. Served with mushroom puree, confit king brown mushroom, porcini butter and veal jus with parmentier potatoes and fresh spinach, all house made by the chef with fresh ingredients. We appreciate your comments about the pleasant service.

“Pleasant cafe”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Breakfast was delicious, coffee great, quick service and nice atmosphere. Parking can be tricky. The banana bread and mushroom brushetta were yummy.

“Made the mistake of going back for a second time.”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

After hearing The Corner had won a national tourism award, we decided to go there to have dessert, despite an initial experience of being treated extremely rudely by one of the staff at The Corner some 14 months ago.

It was about 8.20pm at night, there were empty tables both inside and outside the restaurant.

I advised the waitress we were interested in dessert and after checking with the manager, she advised they weren't able to do dessert tonight.

Although she wasn't rude, I thought it surprising. For a restaurant that wasn't full and recently won a national award I would have expected they would want to show why they deserved to win it!

So we went elsewhere (and were very glad we did as we ended up having a fabulous time with dessert, cheeses and amazing wine!).

I won't be ever going back to The Corner - and as a local who has plenty of visitors I won't be taking them there either.

Thank you for your feedback. It is such a shame you did not make a reservation or call us before coming for dessert. As our friendly and lovely team discussed with you it was an extremely busy night and although there were some tables recently vacated we also need to manage other bookings and service times for all guest experiences. We have been happily very busy over the last few weeks by our fantastic friendly community and regular visitors congratulating us on our award. We are thrilled you enjoyed your night down the road.
