314 Illawarra Road, Marrickville NSW 2204
Seasonal produce driven cafe
Last time I visited Cornersmith was back in May 2013 so nearly 4 years later it's good to see it's still going strong. Cappuccino ($3.70) using Mecca Coffee Blend is well made with a strong flavour that hits the spot to kick start the day. Latte ($3.70) was well liked by the Mrs as well. Babyccino ($1) is served in a paper cup which is a good start. Served mostly as milk can sometimes be a challenge for Miss 2 year old without spilling any although she seems to have thankfully managed in this instance although no marshmallow to hit those sugar notes. Simple pleasures are satisfied with the Cheese toastie ($6) using The Bread and Butter Project sourdough and Maffra Cheddar Cheese with simple yummy flavours that please the tastebuds — the kids loved it equally as much as the me. There's a fair amount of cosy seating although due to popularity it's most likely you'll need to put your name down to be seated. Parking can be a challenge in the area but it's free for at least an hour. Staff were friendly and efficient and run this cafe well with lots of respect to artisan suppliers and fully supports backyard produce from locals.
