Overrated...avoid any new menu until they have the hang of it!

“Excellent retro vibe”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

a place where business man and creative are equally at home. Great atmosphere, food is pleasant (nothing special), but fab place to hang out with friends, relaxed, boho vibe.

“Quick lunch ... good coffee”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

This is one of our regular pit-stops when out doing shopping. The establishment is located in a corner house in a quiet, leafy suburb of Durban (Brand Road). The decor is minimalist with an intriguing aerial map of the suburb on the walls. Outside seating is available. The fare is the average mix of sandwiches, wraps and imitation pasta dishes. The quality is reasonable and it represents good value for money. The best part is the espresso and my spouse's favorite: "red espresso" (and red capuccino), ground, dried "rooibos" brewed as an espresso.

“Modern, Arty, Eco and big on Quality”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

What a lovely place to meet friends or go by yourself. The Corner Cafe is open and airy and has a relaxed and chilled atmosphere with a small menu but the food is of high quality and delicious. Try their take on Welsh Rarebit, it is YUMMY!! I can highly recommend this cafe.
