With the combination of chef David Danks (ex Public House) and co-owner Iain Munro (ex Cafe Le Chien), Cornershop was bound to be something to watch.

Across from the beautiful Sun Theatre in Yarraville, this cafe offers the sort of bustling brunch atmosphere that you’d expect from the most popular cafes in Melbourne. While it can sometimes be a bit too frantic for the staff to handle, the coffee and food are worth waiting for from your vintage table and recycled wooden bench – especially on a sunny morning in the courtyard. You can come back later in the day to find a substantial dinner menu with reasonable prices.

The Mediterranean and Middle Eastern infusion throughout the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus makes for surprising choices, and some delicious results.
