Brunch Alert: Shabby-chic Corner Kitchen Cafe has an eclectic look that’s complemented by an equally eclectic menu – covering everything from all-day breakfast to salads, meatloaf and huevos rancheros. 

Look & Feel: It’s open, airy and more than a little bit twee. It’s like a kitchen and living room you’d find on Pinterest, complete with mason jars, pretty turquoise mugs, wooden plates and dainty floral tea cups. If there’s no room at the open-air tables on the ground level, head upstairs for more space.

One the Menu: Corner Kitchen Cafe does all-day dining pretty well, starting with lots of tasty brunch options that are available until 2:30pm. For lunch it’s all salads, wraps and burgers while dinner brings more sophisticated dishes like seared barramundi and soy apple cider ribs.

Service: Service here is all over the place: sometimes it’s warm and welcome, other times it’s moody and terse. Food also takes a long time to come out, but luckily it’s good enough to be worth the wait.

Jeng: Call us boring, but we keep returning for the spinach, avocado and egg wrap, which is packed with green goodness. We also order the Asian chicken salad regularly, as it’s packed with quinoa, greens and big slices of meat. The cakes here are also some of the best in town, particularly the chocolate cake and the red velvet with marshmallow frosting. Cue swoon.

Not So Jeng: Summertime can be a little stifling downstairs, but there’s more air on the second floor.

Great For: Brunch, lunch and casual hangouts.

FYI: Corner Kitchen Cafe is co-owned by chef Vivian Herijanto, who also runs Mano Cafe and Corner Kitchen private cooking studio.
